Share the Success – RepCon® H – As a Trowel-down Underlayment

Endurance Coatings, out of Snohomish, WA, was the applicator on a unique project recently; a deck area on a condo project  in Magnolia, WA, just north of Seattle, requiring a stiffer mortar – one that would allow them to trowell-down an underlayment at a slope to allow for drainage. Once down, they would then be able to apply their own specialty coating over the top. 

Ease of application, that stiff consistency, and a need for strength, durability and performance led them to SpecChem’s RepCon® H, a single-component, polymer-modified, fiber-reinforced, concrete repair mortar with integral corrosion inhibitor. 

Twelve pallets – over 700 bags – of RepCon® H, along with between thirty and forty gallons of SpecPoxy 1000, were used on the project. The SpecPoxy 1000 – our ASTM C881 compliant, hi-mod/low viscosity epoxy bonding adhesive – was applied as a primer, with 20-30 grade coarse mesh sand broadcast to rejection, and removed the next day before application of the mortar. RepCon® H was then applied in sections, extended with 3/8″ pea gravel, at the desired grade. 

It’s always exciting to see the diversity when it comes to applications of all of our specialty mortars. We look forward to seeing the finished project from Endurance Coatings.
