Thixotropic, structural, fibre reinforced cement mortar, with compensated shrinkage, with high intrinsic water tightness, and extraordinary physical and mechanical characteristics: adhesion, compression resistance, flexural strength, abrasion resistance, etc. Perfect for remediation of structural works and articles in degraded concrete and very high-performance coatings. REPAR TIX HG SB, in addition to normal manual application techniques, it is a structural mortar specially formulated for applications with pumping/spray machines (wet spritz-beton technique). Particularly optimized parameters are: rheology, thixotropy and workability of the product, which allow spraying operations with reduced wear of the mechanical parts and little waste on the ground.

Rheoplastic, thixotropic, structural, composite cement mortar, based on special cements and selected siliceous aggregates, reinforced with a balanced mixture of READYMESH polypropylene fibres and calcium metasilicate microfibres, added with specific agents and a high content of silica fume. After hardening, it provides very high performance in terms of intrinsic water tightness, resistance to washing and hydrolysing, mechanical strength, abrasion and cavitation, anti-carbonation, chemical-physical stability, resistance to harsh atmospheric agents and to leaching water. It has three-dimensional fibre-reinforcement, provides high hold; it is dimensionally stable (compensated shrinkage). The product can be supplied in mono-component or two-component version. The product, in the monocomponent version, is mixed with water (approx. 16% of the weight of the bag). In the two-component version, the product is mixed by adding the 4.5 kg of component B. The two-component version increases adhesion to the support and reduces free shrinkage to air, especially in the initial hardening phases and in particularly hot climates, without modifying the physical-mechanical characteristics of the end product.
Approximately 18,5 kg/m² of REPAR TIX HG SB for every centimetre of thickness to be implemented (approximately 1850 kg per cubic metre).
Repairs and protective coatings of hydraulic works (pipelines, dams, tunnels etc.), marine structures and artefacts in critical situations: aggressive chemical-physical agents, leaching water, marine atmosphere, etc. Specific for shotcrete interventions in galleries, tunnels, rock walls, irrigation and hydraulic channels, piles and micropiles, diaphragms, etc.
Application surfaces should be clean, free of soiling, crumbling and non-adhering parts, dust, etc., conveniently saturated with water until they reach the condition "saturated with dry surface". An adequate roughening of the surfaces by scarifying, sandblasting etc. is always necessary in order to obtain the maximum adhesion values to the substrate. The optimal values are obtained with high pressure hydro-scarification. Bare the irons undergoing disruptive oxidation or deeply oxidized, removing the rust of the exposed irons (by sandblasting or abrasive brushes).
The use of pumping/spraying machines specifically designed to be used with fibre-reinforced structural mortars is recommended. For the spraying of structural mortars such as REPAR TIX HG SB, an effective and sometimes prolonged mixing of the product, which must take place upstream of the pumping circuit, is always recommended. For this reason, the use of “plaster sprayers” with volumetric water dosage is not recommended.
Pour about 2/3 of the mixing water into the mixer, add REPAR TIX HG SB and the remaining water; continue to mix until a homogeneous lump-free mixture is obtained. The mixing water should be about 16% of the weight of the bag. Addition of BOND HG to the mixing water, (approx. 0.5 litres per 25kg bag of product) in the single component version, allows further improvement in terms of adhesion, hold, impermeability, workability, modelling and deformation capacity. In the case of use of the product in the two-component version, pour component B (liquid) into the mixer, gradually adding component A (powder) and mixing until the lumps are completely eliminated. For high coating thicknesses, static requirements, monolithic requirements, etc., performed with REPAR TIX HG SB, it is advisable to use suitable metal reinforcements (electro-welded mesh, cages, etc.), anchored to the support with SYNTECH PROFIX, GROUT MICROJ, REPAR TIX G2.
