Gibco - Admixture for Mortar
A "pure" catalytic chemical concentrate that does the whole job. No need for lime.
- Extends workable time (stays moist on the mudboard).
- Slower drying time to prevent shrinking and cracking (a major problem with dry pressed bricks).
- Use only 30ml per mix (for 80 - 100 bricks).
- Colour consistency and texture.
GIBCO'S MRF.... Building progress through technology
Gibco's MRF the "pure" catalytic chemical concentrate that does the whole job ... alone! No need for lime or other hard to control additives!
MRF produces superior mortars at substantial savings in time and expense. MRF mortars are high strength, virtually waterproof and colorfast without disbonding.
MRF established "state-of-the-art" technology for the masonry industry. MRF chemical concentrate solves the problems of excess tempering, efflorescence, freeze-thaw breakup, water penetration and lime burns. MRF mortars meet or exceed design specifications.
SAVE THREE WAYS WITH MRF
MRF is a substitute for water active ingredients traditionally used ... provides a non shrinking mortar after initial set.
FREE-THAW DAMAGE ELIMINATED ... COMPARED WITH OTHER MORTAR MIXESMore resistant to freeze-thaw cycles than lime mortar ... consistent 12 to 14 percent air entrainment without hard to control A/E chemicals.
MRF is the catalyst that maximizes the effectiveness of cement and results in twice the compressive strength of lime mortars. MRF's high water retention assures strength and helps waterproofing qualities.
COLOR CONSISTENCY WITH ONE-THIRD LESS COST
Use one-third less colour pigment to achieve the same colour brilliance. MRF's unique, dispersing agent homogenizes the sand, cement and pigment to form a mortar alloy never before possible. Get colour consistency ... batch to batch ... day to day ... even crew to crew, all without weathering or fading!
SUPER WORKABILITY WITHOUT EXCESS TEMPERING
Easy tooling of joints ... even spread and buttering ... stays with brick, block and stone! MRF retains over 80 percent of mix water and remains workable longer without retempering or loss of strength.
NO MORE LIME BURNS OR SKIN IRRITATION
MRF's lime free mortar creates a safer jobsite and better working environment. Ends time loss and medical claims caused by lime mortars.
SOLVES SHRINKAGE PROBLEMS
MRF produces a fully homogeneous mortar, easily mixed, a pleasure to apply. Man-hour length requirements are reduced.
A small amount of MRF goes a long way in replacing a ton of lime. Easy to store and safe to handle in convenient plastic containers ... unlike heavy, hazardous bags of lime. Use 25% more sand without a change in mix integrity.
You'd expect to pay more for a product with all the features of MRF ... but MRF costs less than any lime mortar you're using ... as much as 50% less! Plus, MRF reduces labor, waste and cleanup as much as 30 - 40 per cent.
