SMARTCAL – PLASTICIZER ADDITIVE
The Smartop SmartCal is a plasticizer concentrate additive that replaces lime in the preparation of laying or grouting mortars. It is a liquid form product and, therefore, makes the work more practical and guarantees the material savings and an excellent finish. It also streamlines the work, since mortars prepared with SmartCal do not need to be tanned.
This product when added to sand and cement acts as a plasticizer, providing excellent alloy and workability, better cohesion and less exhaustion, avoiding the appearance of cracks by retraction, as it acts to break the surface tension of the water, which also, significantly reduces the consumption.
WHERE TO USE
Mortars for laying bricks and blocks.
Mortars for conventional plastering.
PREPARE THE MIX AS FOLLOWS:
To prepare the mortar mixture in concrete mixer, you must have to using fine and clean sand.
Blend the mix as follows:
Pour 50% that amount of water expected on an empty and clean concrete mixer then add the quantity of SmartCal indicated and mix well, after adding the cement and the washed sand medium texture then add the rest of the water that is necessary to give alloy and workability to the mortar. Mix the mortar in a mixer for at least 4 minutes which is the time required to ensure the homogeneity of the mortar.
Settlement: up to 1:6
Internal and external plastering: up to 1:6.

We highly recommend preliminary tests, under the same real conditions of work, to determine the compatibility of the product with the cement to be used.
It is recommended use fine-graded sand, (In Brazil we recommends to use Portland cement CPII) because it depends on the grading of the sand, and that type of cement when with high additions contents, can alter the performance of this product causing loss of resistance and cracking of the mortar.
The product must be homogenized for its use, regardless of whether it is done mechanically or manually.
For your safety, Personal Protective Equipment should be used: safety glasses, PVC apron, and rubber gloves.
50ml/bag of cement (50Kg).
Note: To make a ratio that takes 1 (one) bag of cement, the dosage should not exceed 50 ml of the product. However, dosage can be adjusted according to each type of project.
