Epoxy Repair Mortar
What is Epoxy Repair Mortar
Epoxy Repair Mortar is probably the most versatile product that we install. Due to its extremely high strength, fast curing properties and formable texture, it is our go-to product for substrate repairs and problem areas.
It is a three component blend of epoxy resin liquid, curing agent and specialist aggregates. Usually, trowel applied, sledged or with a screeding straight edge. It is of a relatively dry consistency.
It is usually used from a depth of 50mm to a featheredge, but there is no maximum depth that it can be applied at because it dries chemically, unlike normal sand and cement screeds with longer drying times as they need to dry by airflow. This impact and abrasion resistant granite-hard finish means this product is excellent for ramps and repairs where lesser products will fail.
When To Use An Epoxy Mortar?
Epoxy concrete repair mortar is used in various construction and repair applications where enhanced strength, durability, and chemical resistance are required. It is commonly used for structural repairs, high-strength applications, chemical and abrasion resistance, moisture and water-related applications, and in environments with temperature extremes. Proper surface preparation and following manufacturer guidelines are crucial for successful application.

How to Apply Concrete Repair Epoxy Mortar on Damaged Concrete
Damaged or old concrete must be stable enough for this high-strength material. If the surrounding or base concrete is weak and friable, it must first be strengthened with a resin-based primer or strengthening system.

Epoxy Mortar Repair for Ageing, Damaged or tired-looking Concrete
Epoxy mortar is an efficient and cost-effective solution for repairing all kinds of concrete. It is a polymer-based bonding paste comprising epoxy resins, mineral fillers, a binder and specific additives.
The epoxy element in this repair solution is a two-compound organic polymer which is blended with sand and also with coarse aggregate, depending on the result that is desired.
Whether epoxy mortar is used with or without aggregate, it provides an impervious environment – a barrier, so to speak – that protects cement, concrete and reinforcing steel against all kinds of corrosion and everyday wear-and-tear.
Businesses across all industries need to repair their floors from time to time, and this is where epoxy mortar repair comes in as an adhesive and paste for all kinds of concrete structural repair.
It is commonly used in industries like food and drink manufacturing, warehousing, aerospace hangers, car parks, schools, shopping malls, etc. or any commercial setting where the floor must endure a fair amount of wear and tear daily.
Concrete repair mortar based on an epoxy element can be used to conveniently fill cracks, gaps and vents in everything from patios and driveways to plazas and massive production floors in an industrial facility or plant.

How do you mix epoxy mortar?
Most are a three-part system, simply add the activator to the base resin and mix thoroughly for 2-3 minutes with a low-speed whisk. Once fully mixed, add the pourable resin mix to the aggregate provided. Whisk again until all of the mixture is the same consistency. Then the product is ready to be used. As with most products based on epoxy technology, you will have approx 30 minutes to work with the material before it begins to set. Then depending on the system and the site conditions, it should be able to receive traffic within 5-6 hours. However, there are many different products on the market, so always consult the data sheet of the material you are using.
Can you patch concrete?
Your damaged concrete surfaces are easily patched with this product. General purpose epoxy primer and our epoxy resin repair mortar provide permanent repairs to spalled and damaged areas. As long as any loose material is first removed and the adjoining substrate is sound, this heavy-duty epoxy resin solution is ideal for your floor repair.
