AXILAT UP 600 B
Axilat UP 600 B is a vinyl acetate, vinyl versatate and maleic ester copolymer resin in redispersible powder form. It is redispersible in water and used in dry mortars to improve workability of fresh mortar; hydrophobic properties; adhesion to conventional substrates, especially after severe ageing conditions; and mechanical properties (flexibility, abrasion resistance and cohesive strength). It is a plasticiser-free powder, particularly suitable for ecologically demanding systems.
Application Advice/Typical Applications
Axilat UP 600 B is highly recommended for applications that require good water resistance, such as high performance tile adhesive mortars and joint mortars.
- Cement Based Tile Adhesives
- Joint mortars
- Facade renders
- Repair mortars
- Gypsum-based compounds
- Self-leveling floor compounds
Shipping and Storage
This product is thermoplastic in nature, therefore excessive temperature and pressure generated by over-stacking of pallets will tend to cause agglomeration of the powder with consequent difficulties in re-dispersion. To ensure that it remains in good condition, it is necessary to keep the unopened bags in an area protected from humidity and dampness and where the temperature will not exceed 25°C, and to not over-stack the pallets. We recommend that the storage time should not exceed 6 months from receipt of delivery. Storage beyond the date specified does not necessarily mean that the material is unusable, but the user should perform a quality check on the properties necessary for the intended application.
• Blends with, for example, hydraulic binders, fillers and pigments show better storage stability. However, blends of this type still have to be protected against moisture.
• Slight color variations of the dispersible polymer powder may occur without impairing the product's functionality.
