PRODUCT INFORMATION & RESOURCES

DESCRIPTION

CEMIX CEMPLUS is a very active non-staining liquid which readily mixes with water to improve the workability and adhesion of cement mortar and plaster. This product eliminates the need for hydrated lime, but can be used with lime if required. A great masonry aid for laying bricks, concrete blocks and stone. Absolutely essential for solid plastering.

TYPICAL APPLICATION / USES

To improve the workability and adhesion of cement mortar and plaster. Eliminates the need for hydrated lime, but can be used with lime if required.

ADVANTAGES

  • Easier ruling off
  • Reduces cracks and crazing
  • Cuts costs – increases productivity
  • Eliminates need for lime

AGITATION

Agitate product thoroughly before use.

APPLICATION

For normal soft sand, add up to 80 millilitres of CEMIX CEMPLUS per 40kg bag of cement. For harsh, sharp or gritty sand up to a maximum of 120 millilitres per 40kg bag of cement may be required. It is important not to use too much CEMIX CEMPLUS as this will cause over aeration which will weaken the mortar. Mix the sand and cement in the desired amounts. Add CEMIX CEMPLUS to the mixing water proportionate to the above dosage and add to the mixing bowl. The more the mix is worked the fattier it becomes. Accurate measuring is essential as too much CEMIX CEMPLUS will affect the mix. Use less rather than more.
