WATER, SANITATION AND ENGINEERING WORKS

Impermeable and fast repair options for many aspects of construction!

Usage:

Waterproofing of masonry work, repair of Fountains, ponds, tanks, reservoirs and swimming pools, all types of structures immersed under water.

Applications

  • Waterproofing of masonry works
  • Submerged works
  • Repairs to tanks and reservoirs
  • Leaks stopped
  • External works
  • Cofferdam construction

Main Advantages

  • Rapid and adjustable setting with Tempo
  • Good behaviour in pure, acidic and sulphated waters
  • Good behaviour in sea water (NF P 15-317)
  • Very good adhesion to all types of masonry supports
  • Economic solution
  • Excellent durability

Rapid Masonry Usage Solutions


1. Prompt mortar

To waterproof manholes/chambers, concrete/clay pipes, tanks, reservoirs, pipelines, pits, damproofing even plug running water in masonry and repairs to a variety of concrete structures.

To repair basins, reservoirs and swimming pools: replaster, crack repairs, wall conduits (Sleeves), concrete works requiring sealing.
NOTE: It is recomended to use fine sands [0/1 or 0/2] for these types of work.

The advantages

  • Very low water permeability coefficient
  • Rapid return to use where necessary

3. Pure compound (neat Prompt without sand)

For the lining of waterways and repairing of immersed cracks only.

PREPARATION OF THE PURE PASTE

Mix the PROMPT natural cement with water until a “mastic” filler consistency is obtained and apply to the area to be treated for at least two minutes. Depending on the dimensions of the repair being made, it is preferable to apply several small mixtures until the repair is complete taking care to “overlay” the previous mixture whilst “green” to facilitate bonding.

DOSEAGE by VOLUME

Prompt
3 volumes
Water
1 Volume

Important:

The mixing and the application are generally done by hand (gloves must be worn).


Usage precautions

  • Do not overdose with water, mix or add further water once the initial set has begun.
  • The supports must be cleaned and purged, with all dust and debris removed and the area being worked on damped down to control suction, prior to application.
  • For landscaping works, fountains etc, fill with water, rinse, brush and drain to eliminate the laitances. It is preferable to use fine sands (0/1 to 0/2) for these types of works.
