Instructions

Preparation:
Clean the substrate carefully and if possible pre-water 24 hours before casting.

Mixing:
A rapid mixer,automatic mixer or flat mixer should be used. A mixer attachment or paint mixer works well for smaller quantities. Note! To good as good a running consistency as possible the temperature of the mix should be approximately 20°C. Compensate cold dry material with warm water.

Pumping:
Bemix S3 can be pumped with a Bemix pump. Always start pumping with a slurry, a loose mix of cement and water.

Casting:
The mixture must be used within 20 minutes after mixing. Fill from one side. Avoid trapping air pockets. Mix and pour at an even pace.

After treatment:
Free, undamaged surfaces should be treated immediately after casting with a thin, light misting of water that cannot mechanically damage the material. As soon as the surface has hardened enough to stand watering it should be watered for a long period or, best of all, covered with plastic, water saturated industrial felt or jute fabric.
