Admixture for Thinset, Grout & Masonry Mortars

Product Information:
"Super-Hydra" is a blend of special chemical modifiers that have been specially formulated to greatly improve the hardness, impermeability and waterproofing characteristics of Portland cement-based mortars, stuccos and concrete. When mixed properly with water, "Super-Hydra" will significantly improve bond strength, flexibility and resistance to frost, weather and thermal shock. "Super- Hydra" also chemically insures more complete hydration (curing) of both Portland cement-based and polymer modified mortars; this inhibits the development of many of the problems commonly encountered with these mortars such as initial discoloration, color fading, powdering (softness), cracking and efflorescence.

BASIC USE:
Interior and exterior for residential or commercial installations. Ideal for any ceramic tile installation where high temperatures are present and areas that will be continually wet (fountains, swimming pools, and showers). In addition to being an admixture, "Super-Hydra" can be used as a surface treatment to harden "soft" (un-cured) grout and mortar joints.

PACKAGING:
4/1 gallon bottles, 5 gallon pails, and 55 gallon drums.

Application Precautions:
Do not re-temper the correctly mixed product. All metal should be protected with Vaseline prior to treatment. Remove Vaseline with dry cloth after treatment is done.

MIXING DIRECTIONS:
Always use approved safety glasses, gloves, boots and clothing before mixing. Grout & thin-set mortars: shall be mixed at a rate of 5 parts water to 1 part "Super-Hydra" for faster set times or 10 parts water to 1 part "Super- Hydra" for slower set time. (Do not use a high speed drill- type mixer - this will entrap air which will weaken the mortar.) Masonry Mortars: correctly designed masonry mortars shall be mixed at the rate of 15 parts water to 1 part "Super-Hydra".

CLEAN UP:
Clean hands and tools with soap and water. When used as a surface treatment, clean up any misapplied mixture with a damp cloth or sponge. Dispose of empty cartridges and saturated sponges according to state and local regulations. Unused portion of Super-Hydra should be capped and stored in a cool dry place.
