REAL BOND

REAL BOND, a white, milky emulsion based on modified styrene butadiene polymer.

General
Description
REAL BOND is formulated as a bonding agent for concrete, cement/sand mortar and masonry works. It is resistant for hydrolisis and is suitable for both outdoor and indoor applications. REAL BOND improve the mechanical adhesive characteristics and waterproofness of cement mixtures
Recommended
For
Form : Liquid emulsion
Appearance : Milky white
Specific gravity : 1.01 kg/l
pH value : 9
Bond strength : > 1.5N/mm²
Benefits
Excellent bond strength between mortar and concrete
High flexibility
Can be use as curing membranes
High abrasion resistance
Reduces bleeding
Greatly increased durability
Improved corrosion protection
Non toxic, suitable for use in portable water retaining sturctures
Easy to use, simple mixing instruction
Cost effective, economical to use
Water resistant, suitable for both outdoor and indoor applications
Does not re-emulsify when in contact with water
Where To Use As a bonding agent
Prepare the bonding slurry pouring REAL BOND into appropriate container and mixing with water and cement in the ration 1 : 1 : 2 by volume to a homogenous consistency. The homoegenously mixed slurry is simply applied by brush ensuring the surface is wetted out. Do not overapply REAL BOND as slippage of mortar may occur in high build application. Apply the overlay onto the wet slurry. If slurry has dried out, apply a fresh coat.
Do not use pure REAL BOND as a primer or slurry, always mix it with cement
How Much
To Use
Typical mix design for patching/repair mortars, bedding mortar for laying ceramic tiles and masonry works shall be as follows :
OPC : 5 kg
Sand : 15 kg
REAL BOND : 1 kg
Water : Add to required workability
Mechanical mixing using a low speed drill (600 rpm) fitted with a wing profile mixing paddle is recommended. Hand mixing should be avoided
Surface
Preparation
Substrate must be structurally sound and clean from cement laitence. Mould release agent, curing compound, oil, grease or any loose particle which may impair bond must be removed using effect means. Saturate substrate to receive REAL BOND slurry and modified mortars with clean water prior to application
How Is it
Supplied
REAL BOND is supplied in 5 kg , 20 kg pail and 205 kg drum
Shelf Life REAL BOND has a shelf life of 12 months If stored in original packing in a cool and dry environment
Healthy &
Safety
REAL BOND is non-toxic but it should never be ingested. If it comes into contact with eyes, wash immediately with plenty of water and seek medical treatment. It is slightly alkaline and any skin contact should be avoided. REAL BOND is non-flammable
