- Conduct repairs of of minor cracks & potholes by by "polymerised mortar" using BS Smartbond 100
- To make repair mortar following are the steps
- Mix 2 parts water to 1 part of BS Smartbond 100 Liquid
- In this mix of diluted chemical make repair mortar or "masala" by adding equal part sand and cement
- Also make a bonding slurry by adding 6 to 7 parts cement to this diluted BS Smartbond material.
- Apply bonding slurry first by brush and then conduct repairs with the "Polymerised Mortar" as prepared in point "b" above
- Use similar technique to create "cove" or "vatta" along the edge of floor and wall.
- Apply the bonding slurry and on that create the coving or "vatta".
- Number of Coats required.
