MALTAFIX

High Strength, Fast Setting
and Non-Shrink Grout

Description

MALTAFIX Malta is a pre-mixed and ready to use grout to be mixed by simply adding clean water.

The product forms a thixotropic mix that sets within 20 minutes (at +20 ° C) and reaches high strength within one hour after application and so it is ideally suited to be loaded within a short time from application.

Once applied, this mortar exhibits a high resistance to weathering.

Usage field

MALTAFIX is used for:

  • quick repairs of industrial floorings and exterior yards made of either concrete or asphalt;
  • compensating either screeds or industrial floors made of concrete prior to subsequent treatments;
  • repairs and renovations of sidewalks and natural stone yards grouting mortars;
  • fixing poles, pipes, railings and filling cracks, splitting and grouting;
  • realizing fast-setting coving between walls and floors;
  • realizing concrete covers over the spacers after dismantling wooden formworks in single-faced concreting;
  • attaching hooks, rods, clamps.

 

MALTAFIX is not a suitable product for the realization of any extended addition/fill.

 

Advantages

MALTAFIX:

  • has a high compressive strength starting from an hour after application;
  • can be applied in thicknesses ranging from 4 to 6 cm in a single coat;
  • is fast-setting and anti-shrinking.

 

MALTAFIX not only sets fast setting, but also dries very quickly:

Substrates preparation

Repairing damaged concrete:

  • thoroughly clean and remove all loose particles;
  • Strongly roughen the substrate ;
  • brush or sandblast any existing reinforcing bar that was uncovered the day before during the preparation and pre-treatment phase to be done with 2 coats of CEM-OX;
  • wet the substrate until saturation is achieved.

Repairing asphalt large squares:

  • thoroughly remove all dust from the area to be repaired;
  • make the edges of the asphalt to repair be vertical;
  • moisten the substrate if it is dry.

Making coves and concrete covers over the spacers:

  • thoroughly wet the surface and proceed with MALTAFIX.

 

Product preparation

Mix MALTAFIX with 4 litres of clean water (cool water in summer) every 25 kg of premixed powder and mix slowly, with at low revolutions professional mixer (with whisk attachment), until a lumps free mixture is achieved.

Mix only the amount of product utilizable within 15 minutes (at +20 ° C).

Product application

Apply with a trowel or a spatula.

As soon as the mortar begins to set, do the tamping.

 

Product Curing

During hot weather it is imperative to cure the product wetting the treated area for at least 24 hours after application.
