GROVE® RIPRISTINO

Fiber-reinforced mortar for Concrete Restoration. CE Marked, in compliance with EN 1504-3

Description

GROVE RIPRISTINO is a fiber-reinforced mortar with normal setting time and compensated shrinkage, suitable for restoring missing parts on degraded concrete elements.

It is ideally suited for realizing very thick layers in just one coat.

Once fully cured, the applied mortar exhibits considerable mechanical strength and weathering resistance.

This product can be admixed with GROVE RIPRISTINO component B (liquid) instead of mixing water, to increase adhesion, flexural strength and water resistance.

GROVE RIPRISTINO meets the requirements defined by ENV 1504-9 ("Products and systems for the protection and repair of concrete structures: definitions, requirements, quality control and evaluation of conformity. General principles for the use of products and systems") and the requirements of the European standard EN 1504-3 ("Structural and non-structural Repair") for class R3 structural mortars. General principles for the use of products and systems") and the requirements of the European standard EN 1504-3 ("Structural and non-structural repair") for structural mortars of class R3.

Usage field

GROVE RIPRISTINO can be used to:

  • compensate the missing parts of concrete during the restoration phases of terraces and balconies rises, cornices casting works, columns and beams, floors, steps, both in the civil and industrial sector;
  • for finish filling on various industrial and service infrastructure;
  • to create the cove joints between walls and floor in tanks, foundation walls, etc;
  • to make iron covers for spacers in foundation walls reinforced with wooden formworks.
Packaging

25 kg bag in 48 bags pallets.

Application

Application

How to Prepare the Substrate

  • thoroughly clean and remove all loose particles;
  • brush or sandblast any existing reinforcing bar uncovered during the preparation phase and pretreat the day before with 2 coats of CEM-OX;
  • generously wet the laying surface and apply GROVE RIPRISTINO to the already hardened CEM-OX.

When realizing coves and iron covers over the spacers:

  • wet the surface thoroughly and directly proceed with the application of the product.

Mixture Preparation

  • Mix one bag of GROVE RIPRISTINO with about 4 to 4.5 liters of clean water (cool in summer) and mix slowly with a drill and an impeller for solids at low rpm (rotor whip), or in a mixer for adhesives, until a lump free mixture with the right consistency is achieved.

Product Application

  • Apply with a trowel to any part to be restored until the desired thickness is obtained and which, however, in two coats shall not be greater than approx. 10 cm.
  • As soon as the mortar starts to set, proceed with floating using a sponge.

Surface Finishing

  • After completing the reconstruction of the missing part,
  • if you want a finer and smoother finish, apply a coat of GROVE RASANTE and a finish with a small sponge float.

Curing the Product

  • During hot weather it is imperative to cure the product by wetting the treated area for at least 48 hours after application.
Tool cleaning

Tools with fresh product on them shall be cleaned with water; if the product has hardened, it must be mechanically removed.
