FTC is supplied in a 4mm aggregate formulated using a special blend of both aggregates and cements. The product does not contain metallic aluminium, iron or carbon and is chloride free, therefore eliminating the problems of corrosion and staining. UltraCrete FTC complies with the Highways Agency Specification for Highway Works, clause 1704.6 Control of Alkali Silica Reaction.
Apply FTC to a sound, clean surface free from contaminants and dust. The substrate should be roughened and scabbled to provide a good bond key. Metal surfaces or reinforced steel must be drained so that all rust and scale is removed. These should also be free from oil, grease and paint. It is essential that the repair edges are saw cut square to a minimum depth of 10mm. Feather edging is not recommended.
Remove any dust by vacuum or brush prior to commencing the priming operation. The concrete/masonry surface should then be thoroughly soaked with water. Ensure any surplus water is removed before priming with Ultrascape Pro-Prime Slurry Primer. Mix components as per instructions below and scrub well into the substrate. Do not allow the slurry primer to dry out.
Add 2.5 litres of clean water to a freefall mixer or mixing vessel and slowly add the entire contents of the bag. Mix for 3 minutes. The final mixed material should have a firm concrete consistency.
Note: Do not over water; only add up to 0.27 litres to achieve the ideal consistency.
Place the mixed material onto the primed and dampened surface to ensure positive adhesion, paying particular attention to edges and thin sections. Level up to the surface and finish using a steel float or trowel to close up the surface and seal the edges.
UltraCrete FTC should be cured using UltraFloor Prime IT Multi-surface Primer sprayed liberally over the surface, immediately after use.
