Revolutionary Quick Setting, Self-curing Medium Density Solution for Concrete Repair from Chowgule Construction Technologies

Solution for Concrete Repair
Easy to use, factory packed, self-curing, achieves high compressive strength —> 3 N / mm2 in 4 hrs and can be painted over, 24 hrs after application-this is MortaRep Super Strong a polymer modified multi purpose mortar for concrete and brick surfaces which can be easily applied on horizontal, vertical, and over head surfaces in a single layer and up to a thickness of 50 mm.

Scenarios such as water seepage in mineral substrates, leads to carbonation and deterioration of the structure over a period of time, this is a natural enemy to the durability of any structure. Captain Bond offers products, which protect the structure against such seepages. MortaRep SuperStrong is a new introduction from Chowgule Construction Technologies Pvt Ltd (CCTPL).

It combines - a) Anti-corrosive coat, b) Key coat for steel and concrete, c) Waterproof and non shrink mortar, and d) Concrete or plaster finish – all in a single product.

Solution for Concrete Repair
Traditionally, repair of concrete substrates is done using the Polymer Modified Mortar method. This process involves removal of the old/weak concrete areas, treating the exposed steel - removal of rust and application of anticorrosive coating, and building up the removed concrete with site prepared sand/cement/polymer mortar in layers of 20 mm each, interspaced with curing. This process can take up to 7 days before the area is handed over for further use.

With MortaRep SuperStrong, once the damaged concrete is removed and the exposed steel is cleaned, the pre-mixed and factory packed product is mixed with water - 5 ltrs. to 25 kgs of powder product, and then applied directly onto the substrate to be repaired. Once installed, it is allowed to selfcure for 24 hours and then can be over painted to provide a finished surface. A coat of CrystalFlex 2K SuperStrong powder is recommended over weak substrates before the application of MortaRep SuperStrong.

Its unique properties include high early compressive strength—4 hrs. => 3N / mm2, 7 days = 20 N / mm2, 28 days = 35 N / mm2, Flexural strength – 7 days = 3 N / mm2, 28 days = 7 N / mm2, Specific Gravity of 1.2 gms / ltr.
