MasterEmaco S 5400CI
Category: Cement-based

MasterEmaco S 5400CI is a single component, extra high-strength, high modulus, shrinkage compensated structural repair mortar. Formerly known as EMACO® Nanocrete R4.

Typical Use:
Structural repair of concrete elements such as:
  • Columns, piers and cross beams of all bridges
  • Cooling towers and chimneys and other industrial environments
  • Water treatment and sewage facilities
  • Tunnels, pipes, outfalls and all below ground construction especially in harsh ground conditions
  • Marine Structures
Apparent use of Nanotechnology: Silica Fume
Reason for Inclusion:

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."
