APPLICATION PROCEDURES

  1. Removal of the plaster and deep cleaning of the joints, with removal of the incoherent bedding mortar. Surface cleaning using a suitable method (sandblasting, pressure washing, etc.). At the end of cleaning, the load-bearing elements of the masonry must be clearly visible, free of dust, patinas, encrustations and weak or inconsistent parts on the surface, with well-deepened joints, in order to create “support steps” for the reinforced plaster and thus favoring a solid meshing and perfect collaboration with the load-bearing elements of the masonry.
  2. Drill the substrate according to a grid dimensioned during the design phase (usually from 2 to 4 holes/m²). Insertion in the holes of helical bars in stainless steel HELIX STEEL AISI 304, with the diameter of the bars chosen according to the structural needs. Fixing the bars with SYNTECH FIX EP chemical anchor or, alternatively, with ANCHORSANA FIX hydraulic binder-based stucco.
  3. Priming the substrate with BOND HG adhesive latex with pozzolanic reaction, applied with a roller, brush or spray, immediately before applying the mortar. Consumption about 200 gr/m².
  4. Manual or mechanical application (spray), on the edge of the masonry, of UNISAN composite mortar, fiber-reinforced with double type of READYMESH fibers (glass and polypropylene), dehumidifying, with very high breathability, class R (restoration according to UNI EN 998/1), to based on hydraulic binders with a low content of soluble salts, with mechanical resistance in class R2 (according to UNI EN 1504/3), reaction to fire class A1 (EN 13501-1), permeability to water vapor 11 μ (UNI EN 1015-19), compressive strength after 28 days > 20 MPa (UNI EN 12190), flexural strength after 28 days > 4 MPa (UNI EN 12190) modulus of elasticity 11 GPa (EN 13412), maximum granulometry of the aggregate 1,5 mm. Mix the product with water using a suitable mechanical mixer for at least two minutes and, in any case, until a homogeneous and lump-free mixture is obtained. Carry out a first layer of low thickness rough coat, making sure that the mortar penetrates inside the skinned joints and filling them (help the penetration of the mortar with a brushing operation using a hard bristle brush). Proceed with the first repair layer of the section up to approximately half of the expected total thickness. Position the ARMAGLASS STRUCTURA 330 fiberglass mesh, taking care to partially drown the mesh on the first layer of still fresh mortar. Wait for the first layer to harden, then apply the second layer of UNISAN mortar, until the required reinforcement section is completed (on average from 2 to 4 cm in total). Consumption of UNISAN mortar approx. 15 kg/m² per cm of thickness

SYSTEM COMPONENTS

 

 

BOND HG


Adhesive multifunctional binding latex, in clear coloured rosy viscous solution, based on a special elastomer in aqueous dispersion, coalescence promoters, de-aerating agents and fillers with superpozzolanic reactivity. BOND HG is a reactive type multifunctional, flexibilising and waterproofing compound, for preparing adhesive grout, waterproofing coatings, and to improve mortar, plaster, grout and concrete adhesion, adherence, deformability, waterproofness and performance.

UNISAN


A composite mortar that is fibre-reinforced, consolidating, dehumidifying, grey in colour and utilised for the structural restoration of crumbling old or monumental masonry. It contains no substances that are potentially harmful to masonry and is composed of NHL 3.5 natural hydraulic lime and hydraulic binders free from soluble salts, along with silicas with pozzolanic activity, selected siliceous-calcareous aggregates, specific shrinkage-reducing agents and resistant alkaline READYMESH fibres that confer high flex-traction whilst increasing the performance of the mortar’s fracture energy. In conjunction with ARMAGLASS STRUCTURA fibreglass mesh, it is ideal for the structural restoration of old walls or crumbling constructions.
