VINNAPAS® 5048 H
VINNAPAS® 5048 H is a very strong hydrophobic dispersible polymer powder for dry mix mortars, specifically suited for ETICS, renders and plasters, water proofing membranes. It is based on a very flexible copolymer of vinyl acetate and ethylene and belongs to the product class VINNAPAS® H which means that it provides a remarkable hydrophobic effect in addition to the basic properties adhesion and flexibility.
- VINNAPAS® 5048 H is a copolymer powder based on vinyl acetate and ethylene and is dispersible in water.
- VINNAPAS® 5048 H is a polymeric binder and also provides a strong hydrophobic effect.
- Blended with inorganic binders the powder will provide very good workability with VINNAPAS® 5048 H have improved adhesion, flexibility, deformability and abrasion resistance.
- Due to the high ethylene content and therefore low glass transition temperature (Tg) this copolymer is highly flexible.
- Mortars modified with VINNAPAS® 5048 H will have strong and lasting water repellency and significantly lowered water absorption.
- VINNAPAS® 5048 H will not have any effect on water-vapor transmission at common dosages.
- VINNAPAS® 5048 H contains a fine mineral filler as an antiblocking agent.
- VINNAPAS® 5048 H is a dispersible polymer powder with a strong hydrophobic effect in the lower Tg range. It has no effect on rheology.
- Mortars modified with VINNAPAS® 5048 H exhibit very good workability and attain high strength when cured.
- Additionally VINNAPAS® 5048 H provides strong hydrophobicity within the hardened mortar. It is especially suitable for adhesive mortars and embedding mortars in ETICS.
Specific features of VINNAPAS® 5048 H
For typical application fields of VINNAPAS® 5048 H, 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 VINNAPAS® 5048 H 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.
