Dolit HB
Potassium Waterglass cement

1. Product Description
Dolit HB is a halogen-free water glass cement made of two components: Dolit HB Powder
and potassium water glass solution, which after mixing hardens through chemical
reaction. Dolit HB is a product out of our special protection materials range with the
following unique characteristics:


Halogen-free, does not contain fluorides

Waterproof material

Extremely high resistance against acids

Temperature resistance up to + 900 C

2. Application Areas

Dolit HB is suitable for jointing of acid-proof bricks, tiles, special fabricated pieces, for
constructing apparatus and chimney linings.
Dolit HB exhibits excellent resistance to water and rinsing actions, which allow rinsing
even at acid and neutral range for several weeks and also permanent rinsing is possible.
Dolit HB is resistant to all acids except hydrofluoric acid, to solvents, to oxidising agents,
oils and fats but it is not resistant to alkalis.

5. Application Instructions
Surface preparation:

concrete:
Cleaning and contemporary roughening by shot-blasting
(e.g. Blastrac), pressure blasting or milling (after milling
shotblasting is necessary). Subsequently clean.
Surfaces to be coated have to comply with building
standards and must be solid and stable, free from
laitence, dirt, oil, fat, wax, water repellent agents or any
other adhesion disturbing intermediate layers. Residual
moisture content not above 4 % acc. to CM. Surface
tensile strength according to DIN 1048, part 2 should not
be below 1.5 N/mm and the lowest individual value may
not be less than 1,0 N/mm. With strong mechanical
load, the average standard reading should be 2.0 N/mm
and the smallest individual value 1.5 N/mm.
steel:
Blast cleaned to Sa 2 acc. to ISO 12944-4.
To avoid fresh rusting those surfaces have immediately
to be coated with a thin layer made of Dolit HB and Dolit
HB Solution (proportion1 : 1)

Application temperature:

min. +10 C (substrate and environment)

Relative humidity:

max. 80 % (mind the dew point)

Mixing ratio acc. to weight :


1,525 kg Dolit HB-W Powder
0,475 kg Dolit HB Solution
2,000 kg = 1 Litre final mixture

(321 parts)
(100 parts)

Preparation of
the coating agent:

After filling the mixing container with the weighted


amount of silicate solution and adding the appropriate
quantity of cement powder, the contents are thoroughly
mixed until a homogeneous cement is obtained. For
relatively large quantities a forced circulation mixer
should be used.

Pot life:

About 60 minutes at + 20 C

10 days

Curing:

At +20 C linings and floorings made with Dolit HB will


be water-proof after 2 weeks without acidification. If
hydro-stability has to be achieved earlier, acidification is
necessary. Acidification is also necessary, if bricks laid
with open joints in Dolit HB have to be filled with a
phenol or furane resin cement. In this case the open
joints have to be acidified 2 times within a few hours
after the Dolit HB cement has dried and hardened. For
acidification we recommend a 20 % alcoholic sulphuric
acid mix (mixture of 20 parts by weight of water 20 parts
by weight of sulfuric acid + 60 parts by weight of
isopropyl alcohol). You may also use 20 % aqueous
sulphuric acid, but the drying will be slower. For mixing,
add in first the water! Wear personnel protective
equipment include facial protection - visor / glasses!

Commissioning:

Linings made with Dolit HB can be operated at least five


days after finishing work. If operation is with liquids
above 150 C, operation can only start 8 to 10 days after
finishing. Regarding the operation of chimneys, please
observe the DIN 285 (Guidelines for drying, warming up
and operation). Basins and apparatus with linings should
be operated with diluted mineral acids first.
