NORDGROUTH TIXO

Fiber-Reinforced Non-Shrink Thixotropic Mortar

Description

NORDGROUTH TIXO is a premixed powdered mortar to be prepared by just adding water to obtain a ready to use mortar characterized by great properties as it is:

  • fibre-reinforced;
  • non-shrinking;
  • waterproof on thickness ≥5 cm;
  • resistant to the penetration of chloride ions and sulphates;
  • highly resistant to compression;
  • with remarkable tensile strength;
  • with remarkable adhesion capacity to any rough surface;
  • suitable for both vertical and horizontal applications.

The product is formulated in such a manner as not to have any abnormal swelling or expansion even if intended for long immersion in water.

Usage field

NORDGROUTH TIXO is used mainly during the restructuring of:

  • walls, terrace fronts, deteriorated concrete beams and columns;
  • walls in need of negative-side waterproofing;
  • as iron covers during the concrete repair cycle without necessarily using resin based primers.
Packaging

Fiber-Reinforced Non-Shrink Thixotropic Mortar

Application

Preparation of the Surface:

  • preventively remove all inconsistent or damaged parts;
  • roughen the laying surface using appropriate mechanical means;
  • alternatively, carry out a pressure washing and apply a discontinuous rendering coat of NORDGROUTH TIXO;
  • ensure that the installation surface is saturated with water before starting the application.

Product Preparation for Manual Work:

  • pour the mixing water into a concrete mixer and then add NORDGROUTH TIXO;
  • the amount of water required is equal to 16-17% (4.0 - 4.25 litres of water per bag).

Product Preparation for Mechanical Work:

  • prepare the product adding 17-18% water (4.25 - 4.5 litres per bag).

Recommended Thickness:

  • Each layer must be applied at thicknesses ranging from 1 to 5 cm, up to a maximum of 10 cm even without a mesh. 
Tool cleaning

Clean tools with water if product residues are fresh; if the product has hardened remove it by mechanical means.
