How does MasterEmaco S 488CI work?

MasterEmaco S 488CI repair mortar is a one-component, shrinkage-compensated, fiber-reinforced product that contains an integral corrosion inhibitor. It can be applied vertically or overhead by low-pressure spraying or hand troweling.

Recommended uses:

  • Interior and exterior
  • Vertical and overhead
  • Severe service environments such as sewer, lift stations, marine structures, and water collection

What are the unique features of MasterEmaco S 488CI?

  • Only requires the addition of potable water
  • Achieves a tenacious bond to substrate without the need for a bonding agent
  • Very low chloride permeability and an integral corrosion inhibitor protects reinforcing steel
  • NSF/ANSI Standard 61 certified for drinking water systems

What are the benefits of MasterEmaco S 488CI?

  • Low-pressure sprayability improves placement speed and minimizes rebound for low waste
  • Sulfate-resistant and freeze/thaw durable for use in harsh environments
  • High early and ultimate compressive, flexural, and bond strengths for long-lasting, durable repairs
  • Low shrinkage produces stable, durable bond
