Concrete Repair Mortars

Weber.cem Lightweight

High-build, cementious mortar for vehicle and soffit repairs.

Weber.cem lightweight is a polymer-modified, cementitious mortar mix, with specially selected lightweight fillers. It is pre-blended, contains a polymer powder and simply requires the addition of clean water to produce a mortar suitable for both soffit and vertical repairs in situations where high-build replacement with conventional concrete is impractical. Since its introduction in 1985, weber.cem lightweight has been widely used in concrete repairs because of its ability to be applied on to vertical and soffit surfaces.


Uses:

  • High-build concrete repairs
  • Repairs to soffits
  • Repairs to building structures

Features & Properties:

  • High-build up to 75 mm in soffit patch repairs, without formwork.
  • Easy to apply, excellent application properties.
  • Excellent adhesion to well prepared concrete.
  • Factory pre-blending eliminates onsite mixing errors and variations in quality, availability and grading of local cements and aggregates.
  • Can be overcoated with weber.cote anticarbonation coatings for optimum protection of reinforced concrete.
