Preparation:

mixing

Wet down all tools and mixer to be used. Mix mechanically with a low-speed drill (400 - 600 rpm) and mixing paddle or mortar mixer. Mix to a uniform consistency, maximum 3 minutes. Manual mixing can be tolerated only for less than a full unit. Thorough mixing and proper proportioning of the powder and liquid is necessary. Inaccurate proportioning of the powder to liquid will result in a finished product that may not conform with stated properties.

With water: Start mixing with 6 pints of water per 44 lb. bag. Adjust the water dosage by a maximum amount of +/- 1/2 pint, if necessary, to achieve the desired consistency. Do not over-water. Over-watering may result in difficulty handling and/or not meeting stated property values.

With Latex R: Start mixing with 6 pints of SikaLatex ® R per 44 lb. bag. Adjust the SikaLatex ® R dosage by a maximum amount of +/- 1/2 pint, if necessary, to achieve the desired consistency 

application

The mixed SikaQuick® VOH must be worked well into the prepared substrate, filling all pores and voids. Compact well. Force material against edge of repair working towards the center. Thoroughly compact the mortar around exposed reinforcement. After filling repair, consolidate, then screed. Finish with steel, magnesium, wood, plastic floats, or damp sponges, depending on the desired surface texture. Where multiple lifts are required, score top surface on each lift to produce a roughened substrate for next lift. Allow preceding lift to harden before applying fresh material. Saturate surface of the lift with clean water. If previous layers are over 6 hours old, mechanically prepare the substrate and dampen.
