How does MasterEmaco S 488 work?

MasterEmaco S 488 is a cementitious pre-bagged ready-to-use structural repair mortar in powder form. When mixed with the correct amount of water, it produces a thixotropic, high strength repair mortar, reinforced with acrylic polymer fibres. It exhibits excellent bond characteristics to steel reinforcement and to concrete.

MasterEmaco S 488 mortar is shrinkage compensated mortar and contains no metallic aggregate and is chloride free. Once the product has cured it has low permeability and is extremely durable.

MasterEmaco S 488 is formulated for sprayed or trowelled applications; in thicknesses up to 50mm in one layer by hand application. Greater thicknesses can be achieved when spray applied.
