Grouts, Joint, and Crack fillers Masonry Mortars

Excellent workability
providing adequate viscosity so that water / aggregate segregation would not occur.

Reduces Cracking
As strengths develop and as drying shrinkage is delayed, the likel ihood of cracking is dramatical ly reduced.

Provides sag resistance
can provide the sag resistance the grout mortar needs to remain in place, even when the grout is only freshly applied.

Dry mix mortars are one of the most widely used materials in building industry. It has many different applications in both new constructions and renovation projects. It is composed of cement, sand, limestone powder and functional additives. The additives are applied in a small amount, yet they play a significant role in improving the final mortar performances.


Improves Stability and Consistency
Micelo can reduce and el iminate the bleeding and segregation in mortars and concrete, thereby imparting superior stabi l ity and consistency to mortars and concrete.

Efficient Thickening

With a very minor addition of Micelo usually in the range of 0.3% to 1% of dry bulk weight of cement and aggregates, the mortar or concrete could be properly thickened to desired viscosity, slump, or workability. This can provide excellent consistency, green strength, and moldability.

Air-Entrainment

Because Micelo is also a surfactant, it has ability to trap small amount of tiny air bubbles. Often time, these micro bubbles are highly valued for its ability to increase volumetric yield, coverage areas, and workability.

Increases Water Retention

Micelo excels in binding water, thus resulting in superb water retention by the mortar from the stone, blocks or bricks. Proper hydration is crucial for cement strength and durabi l ity development. By keeping the water in the mortar longer, the cement hydration reaction is able to complete, resulting in higher strength. High water retention also keeps premature drying shrinkage from occurring, thus reducing cracking due to drying shrinkage, which also ultimately contribute to higher strength and durability.

Increases Work Ef ficiency

With the addition of Micelo, masonry mortars becomes creamy but consistent. The shear thinning behavior lends itself to easy workability
but excellent sag-resistence, thus saving labor effort for the workers. The water retention imparts long potlife, crack-resistence, and ultimately higher final adhesion strength.
