For the plastering mortar normally requires smoothness and levelness. To get these appearances, fresh mortar should have non-sagging and shear-thinning properties. SMS is proud to present EXCELCON A380, the special additive is used as a thickener in plastering application. It can be applied to either plaster or joint compound to make shear-thinning properties and smooth texture and provides sag resistance, reduces trowel stickiness and increase paste adhesion to the substrate.
As it can be used to replace more expensive building ingredients such as HPMC, with low dosages being sufficient to obtain the required thickening effect by using only 0.01 – 0.03% of EXCELCON A380.
EXCELCON A380 provides following properties to plastering mortar;
- Shear-thinning to reduce force during troweling
- Reduce trowel stickiness
- Cost optimization
