MasterEmaco® S 560 FR — Shrinkage compensated, fast-hardening, thixotropic dry mortar reinforced with a flexible chrome-nickel and polymer fiber, intended for structural repair of concrete and reinforced concrete. Application thickness is 20 to 60 mm
Formerly: EMACO S170 CFR
MasterEmaco S 560 FR is a ready-to-use dry mortar reinforced with a flexible chrome-nickel and polymer fiber, which is not oxidized and is chloride-resistant. Maximum aggregate size in MasterEmaco S 560 FR is 2.5 mm.
MasterEmaco S 560 FR can be easily applied using a plastering station.
MasterEmaco S 560 FR is a shrinkage-compensated product. Expansion takes place both in the plastic state (before setting) and during hardening. Expansion is constrained by the adhesion between the rough surface, being repaired, and the concrete, as well as due to a constraining effect of the metal fiber. The stress, emerging in the MasterEmaco S 560 FR matrix due to a restrained expansion, may be compared with the stress in the pre-stressed concrete, when the reinforcement transfers the force onto concrete and causes compressive stresses. This allows MasterEmaco S 560 FR to be applied in layers with a thickness of up to 60 mm, without using rebars or reinforcing mesh for expansion restraint. This is a sulfate-resistant and chloride-free product. This product is also available in the pourable option (MasterEmaco S 560 FR).
MasterEmaco S 560 FR is used for a durable and reliable repair of concrete items of various geometric shapes at the reinforcement corrosion rate of up to 15%, without installation of additional reinforcement:
- Columns and beams;
- Arched structures;
- Bridge plates;
- Foundations, dams;
- Retaining walls;
- Silos and containers;
- Cooling towers;
- Structures in seismic areas, etc.
