Embracing the concept of nanotechnology, BASF Construction Chemicals (UK) have developed the next generation of concrete repair mortars. Innovative technical advances combined with exceptional application properties have produced the Emaco Nanocrete range of concrete repair mortars.
The simple system ensures successful concrete repairs exceeding the requirements of the new European Norm EN1504. This Norm is set to standardise all aspects of concrete repair and product performance across Europe in the near future.
Arcon Construction Supplies is proud to be selected in partnering BASF to distribute the Emaco Nanocrete range consisting of:
NANOCRETE R2 universal, single component, polymer modified, fast setting, repair and reprofiling mortar.
With superb handling properties the product can be applied horizontally, vertically and overhead.
It is perfect for reforming profiles and damaged corners and edges from 5-100mm depths, allowing recoating in 4 hours.
Typical applications are; balcony and edge beam repairs, damage to precast panel, column and soffit repairs and smoothing large concrete areas for aesthetic reasons.
NANOCRETE R3 single component, light weight, polymer modified, high build, fibre reinforced, structural repair mortar.
This product has easy application properties by trowel, hand or spray allowing upto 75mm vertically and 50mm overhead. Profiles are easily created without the need for formwork on corners and soffits. Compressive strengths exceeding 35 Mpa are achieved.
The applied nanotechnology, fibre reinforcement and newly developed shrinkage compensation minimises shrinkage.
Typical applications are; stair nosings, balcony edges, beams and columns, building facades. .
NANOCRETE R4 single component, very hig strength, high modulus, fibre reinforced, shrinkage compensated, expansive, structural repair mortar.
Formulated for spray and trowel application it’s excellent thixotropic qualities allow vertical and overhead applications of up to 50mm . It can be applied in thicker layers in small pockets. No bonding slurries or steel reinforcement primers are required. Compressive strength in excess of 60 Mpa.
Typical applications are; columns, piers, cross beams, marine structures, tunnels pipes and outfalls, cooling towers, chimneys, industrial facilities, water treatment and sewerage facilities.
NANOCRETE AP single component, cement based active protective primer for reinforcement steel and adhesive bonding slurry.
The primer is used when steel is visible and concrete cover is less than 10mm. It is highly effective to aid bond and application properties of extreme repair thicknesses. Simply mixed with water to a semi fluid consistency it sets quickly at the repair location whilst having a long pot life.
