Thixotropic, premixed cementitious mortar, expansive with air curing and resistant to aggressive environmental agents, designed to restore, repair and reinforce deteriorated concrete structures. It requires the application of contrast
reinforcements for layers more than 30 mm thick.
What it is used for
BetonFIP TIXO has been designed and formulated for the easy and reliable restoration, repair or reinforcement of deteriorated concrete structures such as:
• road infrastructures, bridges/viaducts, overpasses, dam walls, tunnel ceilings;
• railway infrastructures, bridges/viaducts, tunnel ceilings, stations, shelters, warehouses;
• hydraulic infrastructures, canals, reservoirs, tanks, purifiers, pipelines, dams, canal bridges; • sea structures, piers, jetties, supply canals;
• civil structures, schools, hospitals, commercial buildings, residential buildings.
BetonFIP TIXO can be applied in layers from 10 to 50 mm thick, by hand using the rough-coat technique or by spraying using a piston or screw mixer/spraying machine (continuous cycle plastering machines must not be used). For layers more than 30 mm thick BetonFIP TIXO must be applied after positioning an electro-welded mesh or reinforcement to counteract the expansion of the mortar, well anchored to the substrate.
Its very high thixotropy allows for fast and reliable application both on vertical surfaces and overhead, ensuring virtually no waste.
Its expansive property ensures maximum adhesion to the substrate over time. Its special formulation increases the durability of the building thanks to its high resistance to aggressive environmental agents such as chlorides, sulphates, carbon dioxide, etc.
High adhesion, which contributes to long-term monolithicity with the original structure;
Excellent resistance to cracking, an essential requirement to ensure the durability of the intervention carried out by not creating easy entry routes for aggressive environmental agents. This resistance is achieved by combating cracking due to plastic shrinkage, thanks to the presence of specific polyacrylonitrile fibres in the product;
Excellent resistance to freeze-thaw cycles, which increases the durability of the intervention carried out on concrete structures frequently exposed to low temperatures;
Excellent resistance to aggressive environmental agents, thanks to which durability is guaranteed thanks to the very high impermeability obtained, which prevents water, chlorides, sulphites and carbon dioxide from entering the structure;
High mechanical strength, which is essential for restoration and repair work together with short curing times both for working under traffic (vibrations, etc.) and for quick commissioning.
