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”

SikaMix® AE-6 M provides the following benefits:
  • 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
  SikaMix® AE-6 M does not contain intentionally added chlorides.
