Revinex

Multi-purpose copolymeric emulsion

Fields of application

The product has been specially designed to enhance the properties of cement mortars. Thanks to its consistent quality, effectiveness and compatibility with cements, extenders and aggregates, REVINEX® finds a successful fulfilment in construction market for more than 35 years.

Properties

The addition of REVINEX emulsion to cement mortars offers:

  • excellent impermeability to water
  • increased adhesion to any substrate
  • construction of very thin coats
  • decreased water to cement ratio for equally workable mixtures
  • enhanced abrasion resistance and thus produces nondusting coats
  • non-cracking coats, that withstand contractions and expansions
  • increased flexural and tensile strength and enhanced durability against frost
  • reduced contraction during cement hardening
  • increased chemical resistance to hydrochloric, lactic and acetic acid

Technical characteristics

Total solids (ISO 1625), % 47±1
Decrease of water in the mix (with addition 15% REVINEX per cement weight) 25%
pH (ISO 1148)9-11
Viscosity (ISO 1652), MPa 30-150

Instructions for use

Thanks to its remarkable properties REVINEX has been applied successfully during the construction or repair of many public or private works in various fields like:

WATERPROOF MORTARS

(cement + sand + REVINEX + water)

Proportion: 5-10kg REVINEX / cement bag 50kg

Purposes: Waterproof mortars (e.g. concrete tanks, basements), slopes, levelling, grooves, joint-fillings, adhesion of tiles

CONCRETE REPAIR

(sand + REVINEX + repair mortar NEOREP®)

Step 1: 1kg REVINEX / 2-3kg cement for steel reinforcement protection in two coats (with brush or paint-brush)

Step 2: 2kg REVINEX / 25kg repair mortar ΝΕΟREP for surface levelling (with addition of water into the mix)

Purposes: Corrosion protection of steel and repair of damaged concrete structures

WATERPROOF BASEMENTS & SWIMMING POOLS

(ΝΕΟPRESS® + REVINEX + water)

Proportion: 5kg REVINEX / NEOPRESS bucket 25kg

Purposes: Waterproofing of basements, underground walls, swimming pools for increasing resistance to hydrostatic and negative pressure

(For additional information please consult ΝΕΟPRESS technical data sheet)

FLOORING APPLICATIONS

(cement + sand + gravel + REVINEX + water + polypropylene fibres EUROFIBER®)

Proportion: 10kg REVINEX / NEOPRESS® bucket 25kg

Purposes: Floors with increased mechanical and chemical properties such as industrial and others in repair workshops, garage, foodstuff units, laboratories

PRIMER

(cement + sand + REVINEX + water)

Proportion: 9-10kg REVINEX /cement bag 50kg

Purposes: Better adhesion of rendering or mortars onto substrate

BONDING OF NEW ONTO OLD CONCRETE

(cement + sand + REVINEX)

Proportion (by volume):

1 part cement : 1 part sand (particle size 0 – 2 mm) : 0,5 part REVINEX

RENDERINGS

(cement + sand + REVINEX + lime + water + fibre mesh)

Thanks to REVINEX addition the required quantity of lime is reduced substantially.

Proportion: 2-3kg REVINEX / cement bag 50kg for every coat

Purpose: Creation of waterproof, durable and crack-resistant plasters

REINFORCEMENT OF TILE ADHESIVES

Proportion: 2kg REVINEX / tile adhesive 25kg

Purposes: Enhancement of adhesion, water impermeability, elasticity in sensitive places where tiles are applied (e.g. swimming pools, bathrooms, kitchens)

Packing

Available in 1 kg, 5 kg and 18 kg containers and 200 kg drums
