Sauereisen has introduced Hi-Build Filler Compound No. 209HB, a strong-bonding epoxy designed to fill large voids and open joints in concrete substrates before application of a protective topcoat.
“No. 209HB fills a market void as a fast-setting repair product where a consistent bonding surface must be attained,” said Dave Snider, Western Regional Manager, Sauereisen Inc. “No. 209HB was designed to excel in filling large overhead voids without sagging.”
Sauereisen’s original Filler Compound No. 209 is typically used for low-build projects and skim-coating. However, the company says, there was increasing demand for a material that could be used to fill large gaps and applied in thicknesses up to one inch in a single installation.
Features and Performance
No. 209HB is formulated to be lightweight, allowing for thicker application. Epoxy fillers exhibit greater strength than cement-based patching compounds, the manufacturer says.
Sauereisen says the product is easy to apply and creates a smooth finish and appropriate bonding surface for the preparation and application of a protective coating or lining.
The compound features compressive strength exceeding 5,000 psi, cures in 30 minute at 70 degrees Fahrenheit, and has a recoat window of 24 hours.
Established in 1899, Sauereisen is a third-generation manufacturer of corrosion-resistant materials for the wastewater, power, food processing and chemical industries and other aggressive environments.
