  • Interior or exterior use.
  • Extremely workable.
  • Can be used above and below grade.
  • Similar in colour to concrete.
Surface Preparation

abe.®rep 710 latex cement has been formulated to allow a thin, hard cementitious coating over concrete and masonry that requires leveling. A sound base is essential for good repairs. Remove all oil, grease, dirt and disintegrated or unsound concrete from the areas to be repaired.

Surface Preparation:

The substrate must be dry before application Electronic moisture content tests must be conducted prior to application of the priming system. Maximum moisture 4- 5% max. (eg Protimeter Survey Master or equivalent) or  Dynamic Calcium Chloride moisture “weight gain” over 24 hours or (a practical overnight “plastic sheet test” is also advisable approx. 1m² masked down on surface).

Properties

Water resistant and anti dusting.

Bonding / Priming

Self priming.

Mixing

Place the abe.®rep 710 latex cement in a clean container. Add the liquid component and thoroughly mix to a smooth workable consistency. Mix only the quantity that can be placed in 20 minutes.

 

Coverage

25 kg of abe.®rep 710 latex cement mixed with 4.5 litres of the liquid component yields approximately 15 liters. Contents cover 3 m3 at 5 mm depth.

 

Application

Work the product firmly into the cleaned surface, eliminate air pockets to provide a good bond. Screed and float abe.®rep 710 latex cement into place, work quickly and use light pressure. Delay trowelling until surface has begun to harden. Not more than 6mm thick and provide a square cut edge for finish joint.

Note: 

Do not mix abe.®rep 710 latex cement with water or add any fillers.

Cleaning

a.b.e.® super brush cleaner before dried/cured.

Protection on Completion

Against traffic and spillage until cured.

 

Temperature & Humidity

Due to thin section and polymer modification the product is relatively fast-setting and not affected.
