SikaMix® AE-6 M
SikaMix® AE-6 M is an integral water-repelling liquid admixture for use in masonry mortar. SikaMix® AE-6 M reacts with the cement, filling the mortar pores with a water insoluble compound that densifies the masonry mortar. This reduces the mortar's water absorption capability and decreases overall migration of water throughout the mortar. SikaMix® AE-6 M has been tested according to the following standards:
- ASTM E514: "Standard Test Method for Water Penetration and Leakage Through Masonry"
- ASTM C1403: “Standard Test Method for Rate of Water Absorption of Masonry Mortars"
- ASTM C1072: “Standard Test Methods for Measurement of Masonry Flexural Bond Strength”
- Reacts with the cement to provide water-repellency throughout the entirety of the mortar
- Reduces mortar permeability
- Reduces water absorption
- Reduces efflorescence
- Improves color intensity
- Provides protection from staining and growth of mold, mildew and algae
- Improved shelf stability compared to previous generation products
