RAPIDCAS-CEM

RAPIDCAS CEMENT is a specially formulated rapid setting cement based compound which when mixed with water sets in about 30 minutes. Easy and quick in its preparation and application. Suitable for a wide range of applications.

Uses

  • Internal and external use for repairs to cracks in walls and floors.
  • Repairing flags, slabs, stones and bricks.
  • Patching steps and window sills.
  • Pointing brick and stone.
  • Jointing earthenware pipes and drains.
  • Repairs to ponds and pools.
  • Setting in W/C’s and sinks.
  • Leak sealing in concrete based surfaces.
  • Setting railings and posts.

Limitations:

  • This product should not be used for load bearing applications.
  • Do not use where acid resistance is required. Use ACIDCAS cement, patch or concrete.
  • After using on fishponds, seal the surface with a waterproof sealer before restocking the fish.

Application:

Before applying, ensure surfaces are clean, sound and free from dust, crumbly material or any contaminants, which may affect adhesion.

  • Thoroughly wet surfaces to improve adhesion.
  • Always use a clean mixing vessel and add approx. 3 parts by volume powder to one part by volume clean cold water and mix immediately to a smooth, reasonably thick slump free paste. The mixed cement will remain workable for 5-10 minutes only. MIX NO MORE CEMENT THAN CAN BE USED IN 5 MINUTES
  • Push the cement into the repair with a trowel or filling knife.
  • Once the product begins to stiffen, throw away the residue. DO NOT ADD FURTHER WATER TO THE MIX. THIS WILL DESTROY STRENGTH.
  • In warm conditions, cover RAPIDCAS with polythene to assist cure.
  • Clean tools etc with warm water before RAPIDCAS dries.

 

Storage and Shelf Life:

Store in cool dry conditions between + 5°C and 25°C. Storage outside these parameters will significantly reduce shelf life. The shelf life is 12 months in original unopened tub. This will reduce significantly once opened.
