RB 5.04 Pumping Mortar

Rockbond Pumping Mortar (RB 5.04) powder is a pre-mixed, ready to use mortar powder. The powder contains a blend of fine cement powders, graded quality sand and a union of admixtures. The material, when mixed with water, produces a thixotropic, mortar which is specially formulated for the pumping, filling and sealing of voids in applications where a pumping grout of standard mortar isn’t an option. RB5.04 is ideally suited to ground anchoring applications where the ground is very weak or particularly dilated. The powder is packaged in 25kg durable bags, and has a shelf life of 2 years.

  • Tested and quality assured to give a consistent product every time.
  • Portland cement based, polymer modified, and microsilica enhanced.
  • Quickly and easily mixed, worked and placed.
  • Free flowing under pressure, but will gel and stiffen once in place.
  • Thixotropic, high build and non-slumping.
  • Waterproof and impermeable.
