About this Product
webercem bondcoat is a single-component polmer-modified, cementitious bonding aid. It requires only the addition of clean water to produce a bonding slurry for webercem HB30, webercem HB40 and webercem lightweight mortars.
This product has been formulated to comply with the requirements of BS EN 1504-3 for a bonding primer.

Preparation & Application
Surfaces must be clean and free from laitance, mould release, oil and other surface coatings. Thoroughly soak the concrete and remove all surface water prior to application.
Concrete substrates must be adequately prepared either by use of a suitable mechanical method such as water blasting, needle gunning, or by such other means as appropriate to give a clean, freshly exposed surface. 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 larger area. New concrete should be at least 14 days old.
Steel substrates should be cleaned by a grit blasting treatment to Swedish Standard Specification SA2½ (equivalent to BS 7079-A1) immediately prior to bonding. However, in many instances where corrosion is absent, wire brushing to obtain a clean surface may be adequate.
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 in accordance with BS EN 1504 Part 10: Clause 7.3.2 (e)
Use a forced action mixer or a MR4-120B paddle with a high powered low speed drill. Mix 20 kg of webercem bondcoat with 8 litres of clean water by adding the bondcoat powder to water and stirring continuously to a brushable slurry consistency.
For small quantities, (mix 2½ parts webercem bondcoat with 1 part clean water by volume). Use a pallet knife or a rigid flat stick and mix to a creamy consistency. The ideal mix should allow a stipple finish.
If the mix stiffens too quickly, it can be remixed easily with no more water. Extra water should not be added.
To steel reinforcement
Using a stiff bristle brush, apply one full unbroken coat of webercem bondcoat to the steel, ensuring that the backs of the reinforcing bars are fully coated with at least a 2 mm thickness of the bondcoat.
webercem bondcoat can be used as a holding primer for steel. Apply a 2-coat application to ensure a pinhole-free coating, making sure that the back of the steel bars are fully coated. The holding primer can be left for up to 3 days before reapplying the bondcoat the protected coated steel bars and the substrate and before applying the repair mortar. Stipple finish the applied slurry coat.
To damp concrete substrate
Apply webercem bondcoat to an area that can be overlaid with the appropriate HB mortar within 20 minutes.
Apply immediately after mixing to the prepared concrete surface.
Use a stiff brush to scrub the slurry well into the surface. Stipple finish the applied slurry coat. Overcoat the steel if it has been used as a holding primer.
Place the mortar onto the slurry while it is tacky. In hot weather the slurry will dry quickly once it is applied (ie within 15 minutes) and it is prudent to mix the mortar first ready for application.
If the bondcoat primer has hardened before the mortar has been applied, it must be removed otherwise it will create a debonding layer.
It must be removed mechanically and bondcoat applied.
Packaging, Health & Safety
webercem bondcoat is supplied in 20 kg bags.
Coverage / Yield
20kg will cover about 5-8m² depending on surface profile/texture.
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. Use within 3 days once the bags are opened.
Protect from frost.
