Application
________________________________________________________
Important - When applied to slightly moist concrete, brush
Chemdur 30 well into substrate
- Max. layer thickness 30 mm
- Use low speed mixer (max. 500 rpm) to entrain as
little air as possible
__________________________________________________________________
Substrate - Clean, free from oil and grease, dry, no loose
particles or laitance.
- Preparation: Sandblasting, high-pressure water jetting,
grinding
- Max. substrate moisture 4%
- If the concrete surface has large uneven sections or
holes after preparation, these must first be filled with
Chemdur -30 and quartz sand (mixing ratio 1:1 by
weight).
__________________________________________________________________
Mixing Stir the material well in the containers. Add
component B to component A. Mix with an electric
low speed hand mixer (max. 500 rpm) for about 3
minutes for uniform appearance. Entrain as little air
as possible. The pot life begins when the resin and
hardener are mixed. The greater the quantity mixed,
the shorter the pot life. To obtain longer workability
at high temperatures, chill components A and B
before mixing them.

Application The well-mixed Chemdur-30 is applied with a
spatula, trowel or float. Chemdur-30 is applied to
the strips in pitched-roof shape. Within the open
time the carbon-fibre strips must be fixed in their
final position. Carbon-fibre strips are firmly pressed
to the substrate by hand with the aid of a rubber
roller. It is essential that the strip is evenly pressed
to the substrate until Chemdur-30 adhesive is
squeezed out on both sides of the strips.
