MORCOTE SBR POLYMER LATEX
SBR Water Resistant Admixture and Bonding Aid for Cementitious Mixes
Morcote SBR is a water based dispersion of SBR polymer which has been specially formulated to meet the requirements of the Building and Construction Industry. Incorporation of Morcote SBR into cementitious mixes improves the overall performance of the final product with respect to strength, adhesion and durability. In use the Latex is blended with cement and suitable aggregates so that a reinforcing polymer is deposited in the micro-voids normally found in cementitious products. By carefully varying the properties of Latex, cement, sand and water, a whole range of useful bonding slurries, adhesives and mortars are produced. Morcote SBR has a successful site history in the repair of concrete and stonework, in floor toppings and brick and tile adhesive beds. Morcote SBR in fully cured cementitious mixes is non-toxic.
