MasterEmaco P 5000 - Single component, cement based, multi-use, bonding and active protective primer


How does MasterEmaco P 5000 work?

MasterEmaco P 5000 is used for the protection of reinforcement steel:

  • When steel is visible and the available depth of cover is less than 10 mm
  • When concrete is contaminated with chlorides
  • In critical environments when extra protection is specified
  • With MasterEmaco R 5200CI repairs when steel is visible
  • When the timing at the jobsite does not allow for the repair mortars to be applied immediately after cleaning the steel

MasterEmaco P 5000 can also be used to aid bond and application properties of hand applied repair mortars in extreme thicknesses and conditions.

What makes MasterEmaco P 5000 a unique solution?

MasterEmaco P 5000 meets the needs of the customer for a protective coating for newly cleaned reinforcing steel and as a primer for application of repair mortars. Its active corrosion inhibiting ingredients make the repair process more efficient by allowing the preparations and application of the repair mortars to be separated by some days without compromising the integrity of the cleaned and prepared steel.‚Äč

MasterEmaco P 5000 can also be used as an adhesive bonding slurry for subsequent repair mortars. When mixed with water, it forms a slurry that can be applied by brush to the clean exposed reinforcement, or directly on the dampened, prepared concrete substrate when used as a bonding coat.
