Vinyl Ester Mortar is used in the construction of floors, sumps, trenches, tanks, vessels and bleach towers in chemical processing, food and beverage plants, dairies, laboratories, textile, steel and pulp & paper mills. Vinyl Ester Mortar has excellent resistance to oxidizing bleach solutions, mineral and organic acids, alkaline solutions and some organic solvents. When used with chemical resistant masonry units and the proper membrane MIPRO-VE will protect concrete and steel sub base from chemical attacks and physical abuse. Vinyl Ester Mortar is silica filled vinyl ester mortar supplied in two parts - powder & liquid - which must be mixed together in the proper proportions (1:5.5 PBW) prior to use.
Resistant to strong oxidizing agents, acids, alkalis and bleaches and solvents. Low absorption and shrinkage. High bond, tensile and compressive strengths.Rapidly develops physical properties... initial set time is one hour at room temperature.
All surfaces in contact with vinyl ester mortar should be clean, and free of dust, dirt, grease, oil, and other contaminants. Surface prep should be in accordance with membrane requirements.
Empty correct proportion of liquid into a clean mixing vessel. Gradually add measured amount of powder while mixing continuously with a trowel, By hand or mechanical mixer until mortar is uniformly blended to a workable consistency. After mixing, spread mortar in a thin layer in a mortar pan to ensure maximum working time of 25 minutes at 35 * C. Recommended mix ratio by weight, is Part A (Resin) 1 PBW to Part B (Filler) 5.5 PBW Material, which has begun to set, cannot be retempered and must be discarded. Never add liquid or other materials to mixed material or any component part.
Trowel an average 1/8" thick bed joint of vinyl ester mortar directly on top of membrane or preceding course of brickwork. Apply the mortar by buttering on side and one head join of each masonry unit.Set the masonry units in place and position by tapping to form an average 1/8" wide vertical joint.
Vinyl ester mortar has self-life of 3 months and liquid has self-life of one (1) months, when stored in unopened, tightly sealed container/bags in cool, dry place at 350C.
