SETCRETE AF

HIGH PERFORMANCE ALKALI-FREE SHOTCRETE ACCELERATOR

Shotcrete has been widely used in tunnel, underground, and marine works for providing early support and preventing water seepage. Key performance indicators of the shotcrete are setting time and strength, which are decided by not only mixture design but also the use of the accelerator. The accelerator alters the hydration mechanisms of the cementitious material, influencing its strength development and setting time.

However, most existing accelerators are types of alkaline powdery accelerator which will lead to caustic harm and dust pollution and dramatically cut down the long-time strength and the inhomogeneity of concrete. In order to solve such problems, FAIRMATE has developed SETCRETE AF, alkali-free liquid accelerators with advantages of high efficiency, high strength, and environmental friendliness have gained more and more attention.

SETCRETE AF has many advantages are as follows :
• The quick setting property allows rapid work progress and the ability to construct thick sprayed concrete linings via layered application during one construction sequence.
• The unique product formulation provides fast setting, continuous early-age strength development high durability and good long term strength.
• Very low dust generation during application and therefore a good working environment.
• Possibility of low rebound applications when using the correct nozzle angle and distance.
• Non-aggressive properties provide improved working safety, reduced environmental impact and lower handling costs.

SETCRETE AF is added undiluted at the nozzle. Normal dosage is 5-10% of the weight of the cement.In cold regions concrete can freeze before it gains strength which breaks up the matrix so for this reasons SETCRETE AF is recommended to accelerate the hydration reactions in concrete which allows it to gain early strength.

FAIRSEAL P – POURABLE GRADE TWO PART POLYSULPHIDE SEALANT

FAIRSEAL P is a two part, pourable, self levelling, polysulphide based joint sealing compound consisting of base compound containing a liquid polysulphide polymer and second part being an accelerator containing a curing agent. After mixing, the compound cures to form a tough, rubber like material with excellent flexibility and outstanding resistance to weathering water, salts, oils, mild alkalis etc.

FAIRSEAL P is suitable for sealing horizontal joints due to its pouring consistency. It has excellent adhesion to most surfaces including concrete, wood, glass, aluminum and stainless steel. For all porous surfaces like concrete wood, FAIRSEAL PRIMER is necessary.

ADVANTAGES

 Excellent weathering characteristics with resistance to rain, snow, heat & ultraviolet light
 It gets cured quickly with low shrinkage
 Accommodates continuous and pronounced cyclic movement
 Excellent adhesion to most common substrates
 High resistance to ageing influences, physical damage and climatic extremes
 Resistance to petrol, diesel, jet fuel and most other common solvents & also unaffected by mild acids and alkalies
 Forms a tough elastic rubber-like seal
 Pourable grade sealant for horizontal joints
 Long service life
 Maintenance free

JOINT SIZE
FAIRSEAL P may be applied to joints between 5 and 50mm. Minimum 5mm. depth is recommended for metals, glass and other smooth surfaces while minimum 10mm depth is recommended for concrete and brickwork surfaces. The use of a greater depth is recommended where resistance to external pressure is required, e.g. joints in floors and hydraulic structures. Ideally joints subject to regular movement should be designed with a width/depth ratio of 2:1.APPLICATION PROCEDURE

Surface Preparation
All joint surfaces should be thoroughly cleaned and dried and primed with ‘FAIRSEAL PRIMER’. Loose particles, dirt, dust, protective liquor, oil and grease should be removed by vigorous brushing with a wire brush and by means of suitable cleaners e.g. KEROSENE. After the primer is applied, it has to be relatively dried before sealant is applied. Deep joints should be back filled with a non retting backup material to which the sealant does not adhere eg. Closed cell polyurethane foam, which should be tampered into the joint to the required depth.

Application
FAIRSEAL P sealant is supplied in a pack with base and hardener (curing agent) in separate packing, ready for mixing. In order to mix both the compounds thoroughly it is preferable to use a slow speed electric mixer with suitable blades or paddles with a speed less than 300 RPM. Ensure thorough mixing till a uniform color is obtained. Failure of the sealant will often occur if it is not completely and thoroughly mixed. After mixing FAIRSEAL P may be poured directly into horizontal joints or loaded into the gun for application to horizontal joints less than 15mm wide.

Tooling & Finishing : To obtain a smooth surface, the sealant has to be tooled by drawing a flat tool, like a stainless steel spatula, over its surface. After sealing, the tools and equipments must be cleaned with KEROSENE.

ESTIMATION OF QUANTITY
To estimate quantities of sealant required, the formula given below can be used to calculate the number of (1 Kg or 5 Kg) tins needed. To calculate the weight (in Kg.) of sealant required for a joint of particular length (in meters), the following formula can be used.

Formula: Weight in Kg = (1.6 X W X D X L)/1000
Where W & D are in mm and L is in metre,
Example
W (Width of joint) = 10 mm
D (Depth of joint) = 10 mm
L (Length of joint) = 12.5 mtr

Weight in Kg
= (1.6 X 10 X 10 X 12.5)/1000 = 2 kg of sealant

1 Litre of FAIRSEAL Primer would cover 6 to 7 m² of joint area or about 1 litre of FAIRSEAL Primer would be required for 30 Kg of FAIRSEAL sealant.

PACKING
FAIRSEAL P is available in big packing of (4.600 kg base + 0.400 kg hardener) and small packing of (0.920 kg base + 0.080 kg hardener).

POLYURETHANE FLOORING

We must remember that no other surface in a building takes more abuse than floors, regardless of the type of building, be it industrial or commercial. While a bare concrete floor can withstand tremendous weight and pressure, it is relatively porous and susceptibility to significant damage when left untreated or uncoated. If exposed to regular foot traffic or the demands of a commercial environment, concrete will readily absorb dirt, chemicals, oils and other spillages. This often results in stains, cracks and abrasions that can make the floor impossible to clean and unattractive in appearance. Hence all concrete floors need some sort of protection regardless of where they are located. Over the last few years, the protection of concrete floors has gone from essentially nothing to a fairly sophisticated process of some type of protective coating or surfacing. The main purpose is to provide protection to the slab from deterioration or contamination or to provide some added benefits such as aesthetics, wear, non skid, chemical resistance, ease of maintenance and different other properties. How to choose the protective material for concrete floor in different conditions?

Whether you are constructing a new concrete floor or revamping an old one, there are different coatings you can choose to finish the project. We are focusing on coatings that are bonded directly to the surface and offer long term protection and may or may not have some aesthetic value.

Typical coatings that are mostly used for concrete floors include polyurethane & epoxy.
Polyurethane (PU) flooring has some added advantages over epoxy flooring which are as follows.
a) Flexible in nature
b) UV resistant
c) Seamless
d) Slip resistant
e) Abrasion resistant
f) Scratch resistant
g) Higher temperature resistant

THE IMPORTANCE OF PREMIX MORTAR IN THE PRESENT SCENARIO

The importance of premix mortar in present days is inevitable. Depending on the type of products we are dividing it 4 categories
a) Readymade Plaster
b) Block Jointing Mortar
c) Cementitious Tile Adhesive
d) Cementitious Underlayment

A. Readymade Plaster

Plaster is a mineral coating with protective and decorative functions. Plaster is applied at a thickness that can vary from a few millimetres to a few centimetres, for the purpose of levelling off masonry surfaces in order to make them even. The widespread use of this type of coating is due to the fact that it is economical, quick to prepare and easy to apply. Since it was first introduced at the end of the nineteenth century, plaster has been subjected to substantial variations regarding both its composition and its function. Initially the so-called “gauged” mortars (a mixture of lime, cement and sand) were formulated, while from the second half of the twentieth century the ready-made, “pre-mixed” plasters started to be developed.

Readymade plasters are ready-made, powder compounds consisting of binders, aggregates and additives which serve to improve both the performance and the laying of the product. Once water has been added, they are ready for use. The majority of plasters produced using ready-made mortars require the application of a plaster undercoat and a skim or finishing plaster. In the choice of the various types of material, it is of fundamental importance to ensure compatibility among the various product types. The composition of the mix may vary depending on the type of application – by hand or by machine – and according to the coats and thicknesses to be applied.
The name of our readymade plaster is Readyplast which is available in 25 kg and 40kg bags and one 40 kg bag can cover approx 15 sqft at the thickness of 15mm.

B. Block Jointing Mortar

AAC blocks is a new kind of building materials which has heat preservation, thermal insulation, sound insulation, light weight, fire prevention and so on. It is a very ideal wall material simultaneously with high heat preservation and good surrounding protection function and is only one able to satisfy 65% energy savings index and has good developing prospects. However, AAC blocks is a silicate materials with very porous structure, the porosity reaches 70~80%. If the mortar usage and job practice are unsuitable, cracking and leaking in wall, hollowing and spalling in plastering layer and other quality defects are often rise, which affects seriously the application of AAC blocks.

For jointing those blocks the mortar should have excellent workability, good water retention high cohesiveness, small shrinkage. Mortar joint thickness is only 3~5mm and much smaller than that of traditional construction (level joint about 15mm, vertical joint about 20mm), not only saving raw materials but also facilitating the manage and construction. Furthermore, Block Jointing Mortar could reach a high wall-construction quality for its excellent workability, good water retention, higher cohesiveness and high crack resistance. It avoids piling up massive raw material in job location, reduces environment influence, especially in building face-lifting and improvement project in big or medium cities. Besides, the AAC blocks needn’t to sprinkle before building into wall, which can save water.

The reasons of mortar quality defects cause by traditional construction

AAC block is a porous silicate material with many internal isolated pores. The pores can be divided into “bubble pores” and “micro pores”. “Bubble pores” are formed from gas-forming reaction of aluminum powder, its majority shape is like “ink bottle”. “Micro pores” includes “gel pores” and ” capillary pores” forming from the evaporation of water, most of them exist in wall between bubble pores. Although all these pores make AAC blocks having high porosity from 70% to 80%, most of the pores are isolated one another, interconnected pores are little, many capillary pores are separated by the bubble pores, so the capillary action is weak; as a result, the absorption of water by AAC blocks is rather slow resource and avoid sewage pollute the job site, facilitating civilized production.

The pore structure and slow absorbent property of AAC blocks lead it to have a characteristic of “water could not pour through”. Therefore, relevant regulations require the AAC blocks for “twice wetting”: firstly wetting AAC blocks at 1 or 2 days before construction, secondly wetting at about an hour before construction. But, it is difficult to make AAC blocks absorbing enough water in practice. If a mortar with poor water retention and bad workability is used in this case, AAC blocks will constantly absorb the water from mortar, so that the mortar cannot fully hydrate and produce enough amount of cementing products, as a result, compressive strength and bond strength of the mortar cannot reach engineering requirements and widespread cracks and leaks in wall, hollowing and spalling in plaster layer and other defects would rise.
We have eco friendly sand free block jointing mortar named Readyplast Block Bond Powder which is available in 5kg & 25 kg pack size.

C. Cementitious Tile Adhesive

From the early beginnings until the middle of last century cement based mortar p.e tilling mortar prepared by basically mixing cement, sand and water in the appropriate ratio by hand at the jobsite. The quality of the site-mixed mortar depended on the quality of the raw materials and on the correct batching ratio which could not be controlled easily. However in 1950 s two major innovations revolutionized tiling mortar technology.
The first revolution was the development of redispersible polymer powder. Polymers are added to cementitious tile adhesive in order to improve their elasticity and bonding to the substrate with the tiles. The advent of this technology enabled to produce polymer modified dry mix adhesive.
The second revolution was the improvement of the substrates. Due to modern plaster and dry construction technologies substrate got more and more even. Therefore the thick bed mortar was required to level the substrate for laying tiles were necessary.

We have 3 categories of cementitious tile adhesives
Fairfix Mortar: It is general purpose tile adhesive and conforms to IS 15477 : 2004, ANSI A118.1-1999 & Type C1 of EN 12004. It is available both grey & white colour.

Fairfix TA STD: It is medium quality tile adhesive and conforms to IS 15477 : 2004 and C2TE of ISO 13007. It is available both grey & white colour.

Fairfix TA Ultra: It is very high quality tile adhesive and conforms to IS 15477: 2004 and C2TESI of ISO 13007. It is available both grey and white colour.

D. Cementitious Underlayment

Laying a concrete floor slab or floor screed over a fairly large area lends itself to a little inaccuracy simply because of the difficulty in moving and laying an extremely wet and heavy material like concrete.
Traditional methods of leveling and repairing concrete floors are both labor intensive and require the use of screeds, trowels and sanders that are less than desirable because of site mixing, waves, cracks, etc. Self-leveling products have a variety of advantages over trowelable underlayment.

The flooring industry has always placed a strong emphasis on smooth and level concrete surfaces upon which to install resilient flooring. With today’s large amount of commercial remodeling/renovation projects, the attempts to reduce costs in the new construction market and the declining availability of competent cement finishers, you need a product that help to solve most problems related to floor leveling and repair. Fortunately, modern self-leveling cements provide you with solutions that are technically sound and cost effective.
Fairmate has very economical self-leveling cementitious screed named “Fairfix Underlayment Screed” which is having the following benefits.

• Prepack and ready to use
• Fast setting
• Foot traffic after 4 hours
• High Early strength
• Outstanding resistance to cracking
• Application thickness is 20mm to 50mm
It is available in 25kg and 40kg bag.
