WINTAMIX is a chloride free, liquid admixture which combines acceleration with the proven frost protection benefits of air entrainment in mortars and non structural concrete, thus allowing work to continue even at sub-zero temperatures.
WINTAMIX has been tested to the requirements of BS 4887 (air entraining properties). BS 5057 Part 1 (accelerating properties) at 5% liquid by weight of cement.
FEB WINTAMIX is designed to be used as mortar admixture throughout the winter period. The air entraining qualities of the product improves the workability of bricklaying mortars. This ensures that the operation can continue to work at optimum rates. FEB WINTAMIX also includes chloride free frost proofing chemicals which accelerate the set during the cold periods.
The user will therefore find it unnecessary to change to a conventional frostproofer.
Features & Benefits
- Increases frost resistance during setting.
- Faster finishing times - even in cold weather.
- Improves workability.
- Easier and faster to spread mortar.
- Remains plastic for longer.
- Promotes higher strength at an early stage.
- Non-corrosive to embedded metals.
- Cuts labour costs, less materials used.
- Less waste.
- Chloride free.
- Does not contribute to efflorescence.
- Reduces bleed or segregation.
Instructions for Use
Add FEB WINTAMIX to the gauging water or introduce into the mixing drum at the same time as the water. When mortar is blended by hand it should be vigorously mixed to achieve maximum plasticity. All sands for mortar shall comply with the relevant British Standard i.e. BS 1200 for Bricklayers Mortars and work should progress in accordance with the methods laid down in the Code of Practice BS 5628 Part 3 for protection and use of mortars at low temperatures and DOE Advisory Leafl et No. 8.
Ambient Temperature down to -4°C. 2.5 litres per 50 Kg cement. Ambient Temperature below -4°C. 5 litres per 50 Kg cement or 7:1 with water.
