Well-known prob­lems on every con­struc­tion site: a cor­ner broke off the pre­fab­ri­cat­ed con­crete when it was de­liv­ered, a slope has to be cor­rect­ed after the fact or the foun­da­tions have not been poured pre­cise­ly enough. Now what’s to be done? Well, now there is a quick and easy so­lu­tion for such prob­lems with the new R 17 from Si­likal. This new re­pair mor­tar has a MMA (Methyl­methacry­late) resin base and makes re­pairs and im­prove­ments easy. It is easy to apply and cures in only one to two hours after ap­pli­ca­tion­to achieve its full chem­i­cal and me­chan­i­cal prop­er­ties. By doing so, R 17 of­fers you a re­li­able foot­ing for all your work in all sorts of en­gi­neer­ing and con­struc­tion pro­jects, even at tem­per­a­tures below freez­ing.

Si­likal’s R 17 has proven to be an ex­cel­lent sup­port sys­tem under bridge and a fine foun­da­tion for ma­chin­ery when it has to be on a com­plete­ly level grade, as is the case, for ex­am­ple, with load bear­ing el­e­ments or cranes. This weath­er­re­sis­tant mor­tar sys­tem also smooths out tears and cracks in screed and con­crete sur­faces and even serves to an­chor rail­ing posts and road signs.

Im­prove­ments or re­pairs to kerbs are in­cred­i­bly easy to carry out using this low-shrink ma­te­ri­al. The area under re­pair is back in shape in al­most no time at all. After cur­ing for just a lit­tle more than an hour, it can al­ready be ex­posed to full loads and is even stronger than the con­crete it­self. This al­ter­na­tive to min­er­al mor­tar sys­tems has shown it­self over the decades to be a wel­come ma­te­ri­al to work with, es­pe­cial­ly where time is money or when the area under re­pair has to be par­tic­u­lar­ly re­sis­tant to pres­sure or wear.

Many con­struc­tion com­pa­nies have al­ready start­ed keep­ing a sup­ply of R 17 on site at all times. It has turned out to be the per­fect way to “smooth out” any lit­tle sur­pris­ing prob­lems that might pop up from time to time.
