SMARGO® 316 is a multi-purpose dispersible polymer powder for dry mix mortars, specifically suited for tile adhesives. It is based on a hard copolymer of vinylacetate and ethylene and belongs to the product class SMARGO® which provides the basic properties adhesion and flexibility, giving a high degree of formulation freedom.
SMARGO® 316 is part of our standard range, offering you the best-in-class solution for a wide variety of applications.
- SMARGO® 316 is a copolymer of vinyl acetate and ethylene that is dispersible in water.
- Compounds modified with SMARGO® 316 exhibit improved adhesion and cohesion strength, flexural strength, abrasion resistance and workability.
- SMARGO® 316 contains fine mineral additives as anti-blocking agent. It is produced without adding organic solvents, plasticizers and film-forming agents.
- SMARGO® 316 has no effect on rheological properties. It is a hard dispersible polymer powder and suitable for formulating low emission tile adhesives of high cohesion and adhesion strength.
For typical application fields of SMARGO® 316 , refer to the section "application". Please discuss additional applications with your WACKER customer representative.
For the production of ready-mixed dry mortars, such as adhesives and patching compounds, blend SMARGO® 316 with the other dry ingredients in appropriate equipment. Temperatures should not be allowed to rise excessively during mixing because otherwise the dispersible polymer powder could agglomerate by virtue of its thermoplastic properties. The mortar is prepared for use by adding the recommended amount of water and mixing mechanically or by hand. Since hand mixing generates little shear force, we recommend allowing the fresh mortar to slake for 5 minutes and then stirring it again. This is usually unnecessary where mechanical mixers are employed.
If the product is used in applications other than those mentioned, the choice, processing and use of it is the sole responsibility of the purchaser. All legal and other regulations must be complied with.
Slight color variations of the polymer granulate may occure without impairing the product's functionality.
