Salt analysis and desalination may be required to increase the longevity of the mortar and the protection of the building material. Refer to Westox Technical Department for more information on the Westox Cocoon Desalination System.
Acid cleaned surfaces should be washed down with a neutralising agent prior to application.
Water blasted surfaces should be allowed to dry for a minimum of 24 hours before repairing.
Surfaces should be dampened before application.
