Polymer Concrete

Contraction compensated concrete

Product description

Marlon Polymer Concrete is a factory-made pre-mixed dry mortar product, which is ready for use after adding clean, measured water and mixing well. The product is composed of Portland cement, pozzolanas, polymers, plastifying and contraction-reducing additives and oven-dried silica sand with a controlled grain curve. Marlon Polymer Concrete comes n two types with a (Dmax) grain size of 0-2 and 0-4, respectively. Marlon Polymer Concrete is a heavy viscous mass when mixed. Mixed, Marlon Polymer Concrete is a strong, heavy liquid concrete with low contraction and optimal adhesion to surfaces. The product satisfies the material requirements for extra aggressive environments (see DS/EN 206 DK NA:2020).

Benefits
  • Well-suited for aggressive environments
  • Layer thicknesses of up to 60 mm
  • Contraction-compensated
  • Latex-modified
  • Just add water
Applications

Marlon Polymer Concrete is used, e.g. for surfacing on bridge decks, balconies, underground parking, etc., and for different repair projects requiring a strong concrete with low contraction or work for which traditional concreting methods are not practical. Marlon Polymer Concrete is also particularly wellsuited for aggressive environments and, with its polymer additive, ensures optimal adhesion to the surface.

Preparation

The surface must be well-suited and washed clean of any oil, grease, cement slurry and other loose particles through chipping, sandblasting or the like. Marlon recommends having the surface approved by a consultant or inspector before concreting begins.

Mixing

Manual mixing is done with a slow-rotating drill with a two-bladed propeller mixer attached. Marlon recommends first pouring ¾ of the water in a bucket/mixing tub. Next, add the dry powder mix and mix thoroughly while gradually adding the remaining water. Mix well until the mixture is a lump-free viscous mass. Mixing can also be done in a suitable concrete mixer.

Application

Marlon Polymer Concrete can generally be applied in layer thicknesses between 5 and 70 mm, depending on the type. For greater layer thicknesses, an aggregate of larger stone fractions of up to 15% can be added. In normal conditions, at +20°C, the processing time is approx. 30 min. Lower temperatures will lengthen, and higher temperatures will shorten the processing and hardening times. If in doubt, it is advisable to do a test pouring first.

Aftercare

The newly poured concrete surface must not be exposed to loads and must be protected as quickly as possible after pouring against drying with sealed plastic or a suitable curing membrane.

Limitations

Marlon Polymer Concrete should not be used at temperatures under +5°C. Marlon Polymer Concrete does not tolerate frost during the curing and cementation period.

Cleaning

Clean tools with water immediately after use. Hardened Polymer Concrete can only be removed mechanically.

Inspection

Marlon Polymer Concrete is subject to internal inspection according to Marlon’s quality assurance system. Subsequent measuring and mixing at the site of application is not included in quality control.
