1. FEATURES & BENEFITS

• Easy troweling and smooth finishing
• Superior bonding
• Use above and below grade

2. USES

For parging smooth and leveling imperfections on concrete blocks or poured concrete walls, above and below grade. Use to level imperfections up to 10 mm (3/8”) deep. It may also be used on painted concrete and wood surfaces (see specific Surface Preparation “Step 2” below).

3. PROCEDURES

Mix and substrate temperatures should be maintained between 5 ºC and 30 ºC (40 ºF and 86 ºF) for at least 24 hours prior to and 48 hours after.

Mixing: Empty contents of bag into mixing container. Add approximately 4.0 L (4.25 qts) of clean water per 25 KG (55 lb) bag or enough to achieve a workable mix. Avoid a soupy mix. Excess water reduces strength and durability and can cause cracking. In cold weather use warm water to accelerate the set. Use cold water to slow the set in hot weather.

Surface Preparation: Surfaces to be repaired must be structurally sound and clean. Remove all delaminated or unsound concrete by chipping with a hammer and chisel or using a stiff wire brush. Clean the area to be repaired with potable water, leaving the concrete saturated but free of standing water. Some very porous concretes may require several applications of water to ensure complete saturation.

Placing: Application to clean, sound, concrete blocks and poured concrete, proceed to Surface Preparation 1. Application to loose, unsound or painted concrete and wood surfaces, proceed to Surface Preparation 2.

Surface Preparation 1: Application to clean, sound, concrete blocks and poured concrete. Thoroughly saturate the area to be parged and remove any free standing water. Some very porous concrete may require several applications of water to ensure complete saturation. After mixing apply SAKRETE Parging Mix by trowel to a damp surface not exceeding 10 mm (3/8”) thickness. If a greater thickness is required, rough up surface with a coarse broom and allow to harden 24 hours before repeating process.

Surface Preparation 2: Application to loose, unsound or painted concrete and wood surfaces. Mechanically fasten galvanized diamond wire mesh to surface. Wood surfaces require 6.8 KG (15 lb) asphalt impregnated building paper under mesh. Dampen exposed concrete. After mixing apply initial layer of SAKRETE Parging Mix by trowel level with mesh surface. Rough up surface with a coarse broom and allow to harden 24 hours. Then thoroughly saturate area with clean water and apply a finishing layer to a damp surface not exceeding 10 mm (3/8”) thickness.

Finishing: It is recommended to use a wood, magnesium or aluminum float trowel for a smooth surface. For a textured surface use a broom or brush.

4. CURING

Curing means maintaining proper moisture and temperature. Allow newly placed material to set until surface is hard to the touch. Then keep material damp or cover with plastic to prevent evaporation of mix water for at least three (3) days. Protect from freezing for at least 24 hours.

5. TECHNICAL DATA

Initial Set: approximately 6 hours

Compressive Strength

7 Day 8.5 MPa (1200 psi)
28 Day 12.5 MPa (1810 psi)

6. PAINTING

Parging mix must be fully cured (approximately 28 days) and dry before painting. Refer to paint manufacturer directions for application instructions.

7. YIELD

25 KG (55 lb) yields approximately 3.9 m² (42 ft²) at a 3 mm (1/8”) thickness. Coverage indicated varies with the irregularity of the surface coated.

8. SAFETY PROCEDURES

CAUSES BURNS. Do not swallow. Do not get in eyes. Do not get on skin or clothing. Do not breathe fumes. Handle with care. Keep out of reach of children. Wear safety glasses, protective clothing and dust mask. Use only in a well-ventilated area.

FIRST AID TREATMENT: Contains cement, when wet forms a calcium hydroxide solution. If swallowed call a poison control center or doctor immediately. Do not induce vomiting. If in eyes, rinse with water for at least 15 minutes. If on skin, rinse well with water. If on clothes remove clothes. If breathed in, move person to fresh air.

Silica, total quartz 500 mg/kg (rat)

 

Skin Corrosion/Irritation

STOT (Specific Target Organ Toxicity) – Single Exposure

Inhalation
May cause severe nose and throat irritation, severe lung injury.
Skin Absorption
No information was located.
Ingestion
May be harmful based on information for closely related materials.

Aspiration Hazard
Can cause lung damage if aspirated based on human experience.

STOT (Specific Target Organ Toxicity) – Repeated Exposure
Causes irritation of the respiratory system. Respiratory tract injury has been observed. Respirable crystalline silica in the form of quartz or cristobalite from occupational sources is listed by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and National Toxicology Program (NTP) as a lung carcinogen. Prolonged exposure to respirable crystalline silica has been known to cause silicosis, a lung disease, which may be disabling. While there may be a factor of individual susceptibility to a given exposure to respirable silica dust, the risk of contracting silicosis and the severity of the disease is clearly related to the amount of dust exposure and the length of time (usually years) of exposure.

Respiratory and/or Skin Sensitization
May cause an allergic reaction (skin sensitization) based on information for closely related chemicals.
