a.b.e. Construction Chemicals has launched a new acrylic plaster primer and mortar enhancer – synthetic co-polymer abebond plasta kee is a one-component bonding liquid that substantially improves the non-structural bonding of cement screeds, rendering and gypsum plasters.
The product is suitable as primer coat for renderings and toppings, including cement rendering, as base coat for waterproofing coats, for plaster and floor finishes, and cement toppings that have not been manually compacted.
abebond plasta kee can also be used as primer for floor repairs, as an additive for cement grouts to enhance performance and as a primer for rendering applied to a.b.e.’s waterproofing slurry, duraflex.
The new product provides excellent cohesion properties to mortars and screeds, and assists in the bonding of mortars for construction joints. It is suitable for bonding traffic islands and sidewalk kerbs to concrete or asphalt, the jointing of caulking mortars for masonry joints, chimney stacks, and mortar fillets is another application.
abebond plasta kee increases mortar plasticity, cohesion and adherence. It furthermore improves tensile strength, abrasion resistance and impact strength. As its performance is not affected by hydrolysis, it is ideal for surfaces in contact with water, including salt water.
The product reduces hair-cracking, shrinkage and dust accumulation in mortars and plasters. It improves the water-tightness of mortar, and also boosts resistance to grease, fuel, oil and weak acid spillage.
abebond plasta kee is non-toxic and non-acidic and may be placed in contact with food and drinking water, therefore making it environmentally-friendly.
Some of the other benefits of the new bonding liquid are that it bonds to solid PVA/acrylic surfaces with no priming required, has a good spread rate at around 10m2 per litre depending on the surface porosity, and it is ready for use, as no diluting and pre-mixing are required.
It is easy to apply by brush, roller or spraying, and is available in one-, five- and 25-litre containers for any kind of DIY or contractor job.
