MasterEmaco P 5000AP

Single component, cement based, multi-use, bonding and active protective primer. Formerly known as EMACO® Nanocrete AP.

Used for the protection of reinforcement steel: 
  • When steel is visible and the available depth of cover is less than 10 mm 
  • When concrete is contaminated with chlorides 
  • In critical environments when extra protection is specified
  • When the timing at the jobsite does not allow for the repair mortars to be applied immediately after cleaning the steel
Silica Fume

1. "Nanoparticle use in cementageous and concrete materials does concentrate on TiO2 and silica fume. Both additives though, are used in small quantities or in a two-layer system and only when specifically required for performance reasons because of the costs involved. Examples of products on a basis of silica fume that are currently at the market are i.e. Chronolia™, Agilia™ and Ductal™ by Lafarge and EMACO® Nanocrete by BASF."


BASF has subsidiaries in more than eighty countries and supplies products to a large number of business partners in nearly every part of the world.
