The Cements


Rasante Red / Yellow / Testa di Moro - TER 1 ONE


TER1 is a pre-mixed dry mortar made of white portland cement, hydrated mortar, selected pure granulated brick and specific additives, added to aid a better workability of the paste, its adhesion to the base and finishing treatment. Ter 1 is also excellent when applied in the restauration of historical building.

Method of application

Remove all dust, oil stains, dirt and any uneven and excess material that could compromise bond in order to obtain a clean, even and solid supporting base. In the presence of old sementicious sub floor it is advisable to remove the degraded surface by mechanical means and then wash it with low pressure water to eliminate all dust, growths and any soluble salts. If the sub base needs to be strengthened apply a few coats of a water based acrilic primer prior to the application of TER1. Warning: the surface of application must be slightly dump but without any lose or puddled water as this could seriously impede its adhesion of the mortar.

Application

TER1 must be applied in thin layers of no more than 2mm by a metallic spatula by putting a light pressure on the supporting base to allow for the escape of any air trapped in the porous material. Before applying a new coat it is important to wait until the previous layer has started to adhere and that it has reached the consistency necessary to support the next one. The finishing coat of TER1can be applied before the product starts to set in circular motions with a sponge float while wetting the surface as needed. In the presence of high temperatures or high winds it is important to keep spraying water onto the surface to avoid a too quick evaporation of the water in the mix.

Rasante - TER 1 Plus


Unversal finishing product with good covering capacity for the restauration and levelling of elevations even in historical buindings. To be applied in one single coat with a thickness of 3 to 30mm. Also for the restauration of any elevation and building facade where mesh reinforcement is used and for the levelling of regular and cosistent bases.

Base

The supporting base must be clean from dirt and dust. If organic the supporting base must be cleaned only by a thorough but simple water wash never with a high pressure jet washer. Once cleaned the base needs to be left to dry for an adequate amount of time (approx 10 days in favourable dry weather conditions). Preparation. For manual application add 7.5lt of water to a pack and mix with a manual mixer for 3 min. Apply a layer of the desired thickness with a steel trough. The application can be done in one or two layers, each of a thickness between 3mm and 30mm max. If the application is done by mechanical means then spray the product with a plastering machine. If used as a finishing plaster with a mesh this must be applied close to the surface but still kept completely covered by the product. Always protect it for seven days, especially in frosty conditions, during the application and the hardening. Curing time before applying the external coating: min 10 days. Working time: 3 hours.

Premixed cementitious adhesive - FBM66


Premixed cementitious adhesive to be used for the creation of floor surfaces with the addition of granulated brick.

Material

FBM 66 is an innovative premixed material which contains an hydraulic binder, selected fine aggregates, specific additives and fibrillated syntetic fibres. The addition of specific granulated brick mixes, once disactivated and thoroughly washed, will create a “cocciopesto” terracotta effect, giving to the flooring a warm and natural feel and colour. To one 25kg pack of FBM 66 (25 kg) add a 25kg pack of FBM ground brick (available in red, yellow and testa di moro).

Use

FBM 66 can be used for the creation of private and public floor surfaces such as sidawalks, paths, access ways and pavements.

Storage

FBM 66 must be stored in a dry and covered place in its sealed original package and in a temp between tra +5°C e +40°C. Once opened use all product or discard any remaining.

Application

For the preparation of FBM 66 it is advisable to use a mechanical mixer. Add 90% of the water needed in the mixer and only once the mixer is in motion add the brick granulate and mix it for 4/5 min to allow for its total hydration. Add then FBM 66 (see info on pack) continuously to avoid lumps. Mix for 3 to 4 min. If needed add the remaining water to reach the desired consistency and mix for a further 3-4 min. It is advisable to apply the product in temp between +5°C e +40°C as lower temperatures (<5°C) slow the setting quite drastically whilst high temp (>40°C) damage the workability of the paste. Once the floor surface is completed it is necessary to level it and to deactivate it by applying specific retardants/primers on its surface.

Coverage

10 kg FBM 66 + 10 kg Granulated Brick/m1 1cm.
