SikaLatex®

SBR based mortar admixture and bonding agent

SikaLatex® is a synthetic rubber emulsion which when added to cement slurry / cement mortar / concrete / cementitious grout provides good adhesion and water resistance. It comes in the form of a milky liquid. It is fully soluble in water and is to be added directly to the gauging water of slurry / mortar / concrete / grout.

  • Adhesion to most substrates (concrete, stone, brick, ferrous metals, glass, ceramic tiles)
  • Improves elasticity, flexibility and tensile strength of cement and reduces cracking in mortar and concrete
  • Economical, easy to use and non-toxic
  • Inhibits cracking, improves surface hardening, limits wear and dust production
  • Makes the mortar waterproof and reduces susceptibility to acids and greases, salt petre action, etc
  • Mortar with SikaLatex® shows extremely good bonding to bases like concrete, stone, brick etc
  • Reduces viscosity of cement injection grout and improves bond of cured injected materials with substrates
  • SikaLatex® can be diluted with water (1 : 4 – 6) depending on the type of application
  • Screed required with Sikacim® / Sika® Plastocrete Super to protect waterproofing layer
  • Standard coating system can be further reinforced by placing glass fibre reinforcement Sika® Fabric-50 in between first and the second coat
