Product Benefits

  • High-build mortar to repair building facades 
  • Overhead and vertical repairs to soffits, decks and columns 
  • Repair of voids and honeycombed areas

Acrylic-polymer modified, highbuild façade repair mortar

Product Features

About this Product

webercem HB30 is a single-component, polymer-modified, high-build cementitious mortar, designed for concrete repairs to facades where high compressive strength is not the major consideration. It requires only the addition of clean water to produce a lightweight, low-permeability, medium-strength mortar suitable for both soffit and vertical repair situations.

This product has been formulated to comply with the requirements of BS EN 1504-3 as an R3 mortar.

Features and Benefits

▲ High-build properties - up to 100 mm vertically and 75 mm overhead, without formwork ▲ Achieves 30 N/mm2 in 28 days ▲ Unique shrinkage compensation system provides long-term dimensional stability ▲ Easy to apply, with excellent application properties ▲ Low permeability to water, carbon dioxide and chlorides ▲ This product has been formulated to comply with the requirements of BS EN 1504-3 as an R3 mortar ▲ Contains fibres and spray dried acrylic polymer

Preparation & Application


Concrete substrates

Concrete substrates must be adequately prepared by use of scabbing, grit blasting, needle gunning or other means, as appropriate. Oil and grease must be removed by steam cleaning together with suitable detergent. Any contaminated concrete must be removed. All damaged concrete should be cut back to a sound surface and at least 15 mm behind any exposed reinforcement.

New concrete must be at least 14 days old.

Thoroughly saturate the concrete but remove excess water.

Steel substrates

These should be grit blasted to Swedish Standard SA 21/2 equivalent to BS 7079-A1 and degreased immediately prior to application. Where corrosion is absent, wire brushing to a clean, bright surface may be adequate. Care must be taken not to polish the rust. Apply a protective coating of webercem bondcoat as described below to act as a holding primer.

Note: Preparation of both concrete and steel must achieve a clean, sound, roughened surface


Mixing of bonding slurry

Mix 2.5 volumes of webercem bondcoat powder to 1 volume of clean water. Mix vigorously to a brushable, slurry consistency.

For detailed application instructions, see separate webercem bondcoat data sheet.

Mixing webercem HB30

A low-shear, forced-action mixer must be used e.g. Mixal Mixer or Creteangle. Hand mixing of the mortar is not recommended.

Mix for 2 minutes from adding the powder to the water.

Over mixing will entrain air and reduce compressive strength. Do not over mix.

Water addition is 2.4 to 2.6 litres of clean water per 20 kg bag. Start at 2.4 litres and adjust as required upwards to 2.6 litres.

Do not add more than 2.6 litres of water.

Note: in colder weather, below 12°C, use less water (2.2 litres) to achieve a damper mix for handballing the mortar.


Priming of steel reinforcement

Apply one full, unbroken coat of webercem bondcoat , ensuring the back of the cleaned reinforcing bars are coated.

Priming of concrete substrate

Ensuring the prepared concrete substrate is saturated but surface damp, use a stiff brush to scrub the slurry well into the surface.

Apply the mortar to the substrate whilst the bonding slurry is still tacky and compact well into place, ensuring no air is trapped.

The minimum application thickness is 10 mm. Where very thick sections are required multiple applications may be necessary. Intermediate surfaces, should be scratched to give a good mechanical key.


If subsequent materials or coatings are to be applied, finish with a wooden or plastic float or a sponge to present a lightly textured surface.


Unless a levelling mortar, coating, inhibitor, sealer or other system is to be applied to the surface, cure immediately after finishing with a suitable membrane.

Before application of a coating or a levelling mortar, cure the repairs by covering with closely-fitting polyethylene sheeting or use webertec latex as an intermediate curing membrane sprayed onto the repaired surfaces in a continuous film.

webertec HB30 can be overcoated by the levelling mortar webercem fairing coat or one of the anti-carbonation coatings in the webercote range. Overcoating times are dependent on weather conditions. When cured, webercem HB30 and webercem bondcoat are stable to freeze/thaw conditions but, following good concreting practice, they should not be applied in freezing weather or onto frozen surfaces or at temperatures below 5°C.
