cures to produce a waterproof light weight mortar able to be applied under
water in thick layer to vertical or overhead surface.

Uses - Repair of immersed or partly immersed concrete structures.

- Fast repairs to overhead, horizontal or vertical concrete or mortar
- Filling/repair mortar for voids, honeycombed areas, etc.

Advantages - Fast and easy to apply sound concrete substrate in layers up to 60

mm.thick, (overhead surface) and 70 mm. thick (vertical application).
- One component system requiring only the addition of clean water.
- Compatible with the thermal expansion properties of concrete.
- Chloride free.
- Non-corrosive to reinforcing steel.
- Non-toxic.
- Fibre to prevent micro cracking.

- Thanks to its fast setting, Sika -UW Mortar is not washed out by the

Important Notes - Store Sika UW Mortar in a dry area.

Mixer - 1.71 kg/litre (density of fresh mortar) In case of overhead application, hold the material in place for few minutes
after application
Mixing Ratio 0.80 - 0.85 litres of clean water per 5 kg bag to suit desired consistency

Water : Powder = 1 : 5.9 to 6.2 parts by weight Curing (Premature drying - Sika UW Mortar cures with low shrinkage. To prevent out of the mortar,
Water : Powder = 1 : 4.1 to 4.3 parts by volume when used above water level) keep it moist if exposed tostrong sunshine as wind.
- Standard curing methods are recommended.
