Construction industry uses Furan Mortar for Acid Resistant Bricks & Tiles lining works as Bedding & Jointing Mortar for the following:
Furan Mortar is resistant to Oils, Greases, Detergents, Non-Oxidizing Acids, Alkalies, Salt, Solvents, etc. Carbon Filled Furan Mortar can be used as it resist fluoride salted, Hydrofluoric acid, hot & highly concentrated alkalies, etc. It is also resistant to temperature 170oC (Max.)
Preparation of Mortar
Powder and solution generally goes into preparation of Mortar. 1 Pbw of solution and 3 Pbw of powder is added to obtain good working consistency. Based on the working conditions and temperature, this ratio will slightly vary. The process starts by preparing small batches of Mortar. The solution must be stirred before use. The solution must be poured in a mixing pan and powder must be added into it. Either spatula or trowel is used to mix the solution thoroughly. The solution must be mixed until a uniform mixture is obtained. When one batch is prepared, make sure the mixing pan is cleaned to prepare the next batch of the mortar.
The cement plastered surface must be clean, dry, slight rough, in line & level, free from dirt, dust, oil and grease. It must maintain needed slope, as it can not be altered or adjusted in acid proof lining works.
Setting / Curing
Furan Resin Mortar is a self-hardening, given to its chemical reaction that happens when the resin and powder are mixed.
Please make sure that no water is spilled over the bricks lining works untill it is totally cured.
