FAQ

What are latex bonding agents?

Latex bonding agents are specially formulated products used in the concrete construction industry to improve the adhesion between new concrete and existing surfaces. They are typically applied to the surface before the new concrete is poured or applied.

Are latex bonding agents compatible with other concrete products?

Latex bonding agents are compatible with a wide range of concrete products, including repair mortars, stucco, and plaster. They can also be used as admixtures to enhance the performance of cement-based materials.

Why should I use a latex bonding agent?

Latex bonding agents enhance the bond strength between the new concrete and the existing surface, ensuring a durable and long-lasting connection. They help prevent delamination, cracking, and other issues that can occur when there is poor adhesion.

How do I apply a latex bonding agent?

The application process may vary depending on the specific product, but generally, latex bonding agents are applied using a brush, roller, or sprayer. It is important to follow the manufacturer’s instructions for proper application and curing times.

How do latex bonding agents work?

Latex bonding agents work by creating a chemical bond between the new concrete and the existing surface. They penetrate into the pores of the substrate and form a strong bond with the cementitious materials in the new concrete.

Can latex bonding agents be used on existing painted surfaces?

Latex bonding agents are not recommended for use on painted surfaces. The presence of paint can interfere with the bonding process and may result in poor adhesion. It is best to remove any existing paint before applying a latex bonding agent.

When should I use a latex bonding agent?

Latex bonding agents are commonly used in various concrete applications, such as repairs, overlays, and resurfacing projects. They are especially useful when working with vertical or overhead surfaces, as they improve the bond strength and prevent sagging or slippage.

Are latex bonding agents safe to use?

Latex bonding agents are designed to be safe for use in concrete construction. However, it is always important to follow proper safety precautions, such as wearing protective gloves and eyewear, when handling and applying these products.

Can latex bonding agents be used for interior and exterior applications?

Yes, latex bonding agents are suitable for both interior and exterior applications. They provide excellent adhesion in various weather conditions and can withstand exposure to moisture, UV rays, and other environmental factors.
