Polyester Concrete is a polyester resin based material suitable for the repair, surfacing, jointing and bedding of concrete, brickwork and masonry.
The product is supplied as a two pack system ready for on site mixing, consisting of a tin of base resin and a bag of catalysed filler. The mixed mortar will harden to give rapid strength gain reaching 20N/mm_ in 2 hours. The mixed Polyester Concrete can be placed in section thicknesses of 5mm to 50mm in single layers. Thicker sections can be achieved by placing multiple layers. The bond strength developed is stronger than the tensile strength of most construction materials.
Placed fixtures will resist high compressive and high impact loads.
The chemical setting and hardening mechanism will continue at temperatures down to 0°C with only a small increase in hardening time.
The hardened mortar is resistant to chemical attack from a wide range of chemical media.
