Beyem Tixo

Beyem Tixo

One-component, fiber-reinforced dry mortar for theming and modeling works.

About this product

BEYEM TIXO is a one-component, shrinkage compensated, fiber-reinforced mortar for reliefs reconstruction flattened and shaped of surfaces. Professional theming works.  Formulated with special cements, selected and lightweight aggregates, organic and inorganic additives  and thixotropic agents. 

Benefits
  • Highly thixotropic.
  • Rainwater-proof and permeable to water vapour.
  • Lightweight. Suitable for spray render and pump machines or manual applications.
  • High adhesion.
  • Very low shrinkage behaviour.
  • High mechanical strengths.
  • Fiber-reinforced.
Use

Making reliefs of various aspects. For reliefs reconstruction flattened and shaped of surfaces. Imitation of natural environments (stones, rocks, etc.). Professional theming and modeling works. Facade coating  with different finishes. Ornamental elements such as baseboards, cornices, etc. Wall covering. Facade rehabilitation. Repairs of  balconies corners, cornices, edges,etc.

Substrates

BEYEM TIXO is suitable for:

  • Brickwork. Ceramic bricks.
  • Concrete blocks.
  • Concrete  (treated with BEYEM UNIÓN MORTEROS adhesion promoter primer).
  • Cement based substrates.
Preparation of substrates

Substrates must be clean, compact and  free of substances that reduce adhesion such as dust, oil, grease and with no loose material. Substrates must submit an adequate porosity and surface roughness. Uneven areas must be corrected.  Dampen substrates with water  to cool down if they should be too warm, in case of wind or over absorbent substrates  and wait until the thin layer of water disappears. It is a good practice curing with a fine spray of clean water  24 h after application. Do not apply on cellular concrete, gypsum based plasters, paint, plastic, wood or materials with  low mechanical properties.

Instructions for use

Mix manually of mechanically BEYEM TIXO with 5,25-6,25 l per bag of clean water until a homogeneous, creamy and lump-free paste  is obtained. Let the mix stand for 5 minutes before application. To apply with render  spray machine, it´s necessary to set the relation water/mortar  and pump pressure depending on section and length of hose  and climatology conditions. It´s important to maintain the  variables affecting the properties of the applied mortar (distance to the wall, angle of application and water proportion). Spread the mixed product with a trowel (in case of manually or mechanically application) leaving  0,4-4,0 cm of thickness (depending of the shape or mould used). Press to ensure adhesion and expel the air contained in the pores. Smooth with a ruler the applied material to regulate thickness. Once the material has been applied proceed to shape the volume using spatulas, trowels,etc. Once hardened, sand and sculpt the desired parts. Pigment  to achieve the desired effect. Application must be made in thicknesses not less than 5 mm and not more than 200 mm taking into account the indications listed below.

Cautions and recommendations
  • Always mix with the specified amount of water.
  • Do not apply below 5ºC or above 30ºC.
  • Do not apply when there is  risk of frost, rain, strong wind or direct sunlight.
  • Reinforcement with alkali resistant fiberglass mesh  may also be required, dependent upon substrate condition ( junctions of different surfaces, corners of voids…), project specification and  when applied in several layers.
  • Above 5 cm of thickness and for large volumes, apply the product in several layers and use an armor,  leaving a roughness surface in the first to improve the adhesion of the second layer.
  • It is necessary to use a primer on too high absorption substrates, as a cellular concrete, or on very low absorption substrates.
  • Do not apply on gypsum, paint, or materials with  low mechanical properties.
  • Protect the mortar applied of early dehydration, using suitable  curing methods.
