The physico-chemical action of FLUID TIX can be considered as a complex interaction of positive physicochemical contributions and modifications of the rheology of the mixture. In particular, the super-pozzolanic reaction (the transformation of calcium hydroxide Ca(OH)₂ – being unstable, soluble and dangerously reactive – into hydrated calcium silicate that is mechanically and chemically stable and insoluble) involves significant contributions in terms of performance and durability. The physical action of the MICROSIL 90 ultrafine filler, present in the formula, results in increments in density, compactness and resistance of the matrix. Special additives also permit a rise in the thixotropy of the mixtures additivated with FLUID TIX with optimal adjustment of the workability in accordance with the dosage used. The conglomerates added with FLUID TIX are therefore thixotropic composites particularly suitable for the realisation of durable works and repairs, even in aggressive atmospheres – marine, mountain, urban and industrial. FLUID TIX is optimised to be used as a viscosifier additive and as a thixotropy regulator in all of our castable and injection products: MIKROSANA, SANAFLUENS, and GROUT line. When it is necessary to localise the injection operation in the mass of the masonry, FLUID TIX is thus an indispensable additive to regulate the flow and fluidity of the slurry.
Add 10–30 kilograms of FLUID TIX per cubic metre of mixture to be made. Recommended dose on our products MIKROSANA, SANAFLUENS, GROUT CABLE, GROUT MICRO J: 0.15 to 0.4 kilograms per 25 kilograms of product.
Packaging of conglomerates that are thixotropic, compact, self-sustaining, with controlled shrinkage, high waterproofing properties and high performance in terms of chemical resistance (sulphates, chlorides, run-off waters, etc.), along with mechanical and overall durability. Ideal for lime-based plasters, plasters with a hydraulic binder base, concrete blocks, joints. As a viscosifier and regulator of fluidity in our pouring and injectable products.
FLUID TIX must be added in the cement or other mixer, in succession with the remaining solid components of the blend – the cement and aggregates. After an initial stir, the water for the mixture must be added, then continue to mix until obtaining a homogeneous and lump-free blend. Apply the resulting thixotropic cement conglomerate with a trowel or plastering machine (Turbosol type). Ensure exposed surfaces are protected and wet-cured.
