Beyem R3 T

Beyem R3 T

One-component, thixotropic, low shrinkage and high strength mortar for concrete repair.

About this product

BEYEM R3 T is a one-component, thixotropic, low shrinkage and high strength mortar for concrete repair. Formulated with special cements, selected aggregates, organic additives and resins to improve adhesion and mechanical strengths. Fiber-reinforced. Specially suitable for  concrete repair works.

Benefits
  • Class R3.
  • Modified polymer mortar (PCC).
  • High mechanical strengths.
  • High adhesion.
  • Thixotropic.
  • Free of chlorides and organic fibers.
  • Very low shrinkage behaviour.
  • Suitable for pump machines and manual applications.
  • Both internal and external use. Surface ready to paint.
  • Superior workability.  
Use

Regeneration and repair of structural and non-structural elements. Repair of precast concrete elements.  Re-establishing structural integrity of concrete. Repairs of structural elements such as columns, bridge girders, water treatment plants, tunnels, pillars with large load transfer…

Restoration work (Principle 3 , method 3.1 and 3.3 of EN 1504-9 ). Repair of spalling and damaged concrete in buildings, bridges,  infrastructure and superstructure works.

Structural strengthening  (Principle 4 , method 4.4 of EN 1504-9 ). Increasing the bearing capacity of the concrete structure  by adding mortar.

Preserving or restoring passivity (Principle 7, method 7.1 and 7.2 of EN 1504-9). Increasing cover with additional mortar and replacing  contaminated or carbonated.

Substrates

BEYEM R3 T is suitable for:

  • Concrete
  • Precast concrete  elements
Preparation of substrates

Concrete must be free from dust, loose material, surface contamination and materials which reduce  bond or prevent suction or wetting  by repair materials. Steel reinforcements must be free of rust, grease, oil and other adhesion impairing contaminants (Sa21/2 degree). Where necessary, concrete  must be cleaned by sandblasting, high pressure water jetting or other approved mechanical methods that do not cause vibration or impact, to leave a clean and keyed surface. Rusty exposed reinforcement must be cleaned by    metal brushing or sandblasting. Absorbent substrates should be previously wetted until they are saturated, preventing waterlogging, and applying the mortar  once the surface has a matt appearance.

Smooth, slightly absorbent or very damaged substrates should be treated to obtain a surface with minimum guarantees of roughness and tensile strength. Minimum roughness of at least 5 mm. For more information regarding substrate preparation, refer to the recommendations provided in EN 1504-10.

Instructions for use

Mix manually of mechanically BEYEM R3 T with ≈ 3,7 l per bag of clean water until a homogeneous, and  and lump-free paste  is obtained.  BEYEM R3 T can be applied either manually using traditional techniques or mechanically using wet spray equipment in thicknesses not less than 5 mm and not more than 40 mm per layer, respecting the correct application techniques.

Press the repair mortar with a trowel onto the substrate. Finishing for both hand and machine application can be done with the same trowel or float as soon as the mortar has started to stiffen. 

Cautions and recommendations
  • Do not apply below 5ºC or above 30ºC.
  • Do not apply when there is risk of frost, rain, strong wind or direct sunlight.
  • Do not add water in excess of the recommended dosage .
  • Protect the mortar applied of early dehydration, using suitable  curing methods. The curing operation in humid environment is essential for at least 24 hours after application.
  • Do not apply on gypsum, metal or wood.
  • Mix only sufficient material that can be applied  using available labour and equipment.
