About this Product
webercem mortar is a general purpose high strength mortar for the repair of concrete, to both horizontal and vertical surfaces. This product has been formulated to comply with the requirements of BS EN 1504-3 as an R4 mortar. It is used in conjunction with webercem keycoat primer.
Features and Benefits
- Resistant to water penetration.
- Good adhesion to concrete
- Faster strength development than ordinary sand-cement mortar
- Formulated to comply with the requirements of BS EN 1504-3 as an R4 mortar
- Resistant to foot and vehicular traffic

Declaration of Performance (DoP)
Preparation & Application
Concrete substrates must be adequately prepared either by use of a suitable mechanical method such as water blasting, needle gunning, or other appropriate means.
Old concrete surfaces contaminated with oil or grease require suitable preparation, such as steam cleaning in conjunction with a suitable detergent. Care must be taken to ensure that the oil or grease is removed from the surface and not simply spread over a large area.
New concrete should be at least 14 days old.
Where repairs are carried out, feather edging is not recommended; therefore, the perimeter of area to be repaired should be cut back to provide a square edge, minimum 10 mm.
Before application of webercem keycoat, the concrete should be thoroughly wetted but all surface water must be removed.
Steel reinforcement which has been exposed during preparation should be completely uncovered to the full circumference of the bar. Rust scale, corrosion products and other deposits shall be removed from reinforcement by grit blasting or other approved methods to achieve first quality to BS 7079-A1 (equivalent to Swedish Standard SA 2 1/2).
Steel cleaning shall include hidden faces at the back of bars and at intersections, and the bonding agent/holding primer applied immediately after. In many instances where chloride-induced corrosion is absent, and where grit blasting is not practical, wire brushing or other techniques may be acceptable to the engineer, provided that care is taken not to polish the surfaces of the rust on the steel.
BS EN 1504 states:- 'Where exposed reinforcement is contaminated with chloride or other material which may cause corrosion, the whole of the circumference of the contaminated reinforcement shall be cleaned by water jets not exceeding a pressure of 18 MPa to remove the chlorides and other contaminants unless electrochemical methods of protection and repair are to be used.'
webercem keycoat bonding slurry
Mix in the ratio of 3 volumes of webercem keycoat to 1 volume of clean water. Slowly add powder to water mixing continuously to a smooth creamy consistency.
Apply the slurry by a stiff brush and scrub well in. The slurry must be tacky when applying webercem mortar.
In hot weather the slurry dries quickly and, therefore, it is advisable that webercem mortar is mixed ready for application before the bonding slurry is applied. lf webercem keycoat does dry, it must be removed mechanically and a further coat applied.
In certain circumstances, especially in warmer conditions, it is more appropriate to use an epoxy primer such as webertec EP bonding aid.
webercem mortar must be mixed in a forced-action mixer such as a Mixal or Creteangle.
Slowly add the contents of a 25 kg bag of webercem mortar to 2·4 to 2.6 litres of clean water and mix for at least 3 minutes until a uniform colour and consistency is attained.
Apply the mortar to the tacky webercem keycoat or webertec EP bonding aid, compact into position and finish with a steel float. For vertical repairs, carefully tamp the mortar into position in layers of about 10 - 20 mm, and allow to reach initial set before applying the next layers of webercem keycoat or webertec EP bonding aid and webercem mortar.
On small floor repairs, cut out the damaged concrete to ensure the repair is 'toed' into the surrounding concrete. It is recommended that the surrounding concrete is sealed with weber acrylic sealer, which is a low-viscosity insurface sealer, to reduce the problems of degradation of concrete adjacent to the repair.
For further details of recommended procedures, refer to BS EN 1504: Part 10: Site application of products.
Good curing is essential. Immediately after the finishing operation, spray with water and cover with closely-fitting polythene sheeting or spray with webercote primer and cover with close contact polythene sheet sealed at the edges with water resistant tape.
Alternatively, spray-apply a proprietary curing membrane with a minimum efficiency of 50%. If coatings are to be applied subsequently, check the compatability of the curing membrane, otherwise it may have to be removed before coating.
Packaging, Health & Safety
webercem mortar is supplied in a 25 kg polylined bag .
Coverage / Yield
1 bag yields 12.5 litres when mixed with 2.5 litres of clean water.
Coverage:- 1m2 at 12.5 mm thickness.
Storage and Shelf Life
Shelf life is 12 months from date of manufacture if stored properly in unopened and undamaged packaging in dry conditions within the temperature range 5°C to 25°C. If stored at higher temperatures and high humidity, the shelf life will be reduced.
