Remmers Betofix Filler is a PCC fine filler best used for structural repair of concrete structures. Polymer additives improve adhesion of the mortar, making it especially suitable for vertical and over-head work. The hardened mortar is resistant to water, weather, frost and frost/de-icing salt.
At the time of application the substrate must be matt damp, sound and load-bearing. Remove loose material that could interfere with adhesion and cement grout e.g. by blasting. The substrate must also be sufficiently rough. The pull-off strength of the substrate must correspond to the relevant technical rules. The pre-wet substrate should be still slightly absorbent.
Pour approx. 3.8 l of water into a clean container (mortar tub), then add 25 kg Betofix Filler. Mix thoroughly with a mixer/positive mixer for approx. 2 minutes until homogeneous and until the proper consistence for working has been achieved. If necessary, a little more water may be added. Mixing by hand as well as the preparation of partial amounts is not permissible. To achieve the best possible adhesion between the concrete and filler, a scratch coat should be applied to the matt amp substrate first. The filler can be applied in a single layer from 1 - 6 mm thick and in broken out areas up to 10 mm.
Initially set mortar cannot be made workable again by adding water or fresh mortar. Do not use if the temperature of the air, substrate and building material is below +5 °C or above +30 °C. Low temperatures lengthen, high temperatures reduce working and setting time.
Protect the fresh mortar surface for at least 4 days from weather influences such as sun, wind, rain, drafts and frost to and from too fast dehydration.

The manufacturers data sheets are available for download from this website. It is your responsibility to read and understand all aspects of the data sheets before you place an order and prior to application. Please pay special attention to the preparation, mixing and application temperatures of the product, cleaning of substrate and environmental factors such as temperature, rain etc. Quoted coverage rates are based on the manufacturers theoretical rates and may vary depending upon substrates absorption, texture and application. We always recommend a test is carried out to ensure suitability.
