MasterEmaco S 5300CI
Category: Cement-based
MasterEmaco S 5300CI is a single component, lightweight, polymer modified, high build structural repair mortar. MasterEmaco S 5300CI is a ready-to-use material that contains portland cement, well graded sands, specially selected polymer fibres and additives. Formerly known as EMACO® Nanocrete R3.
Typical Use:
structural repair of lower strength concrete elements such as: 
  • balcony edges, soffits and decks
  • multi-storey car parks
  • window ledges
  • lintels and beams commercial or domestic buildings
  • building facades
  • precast panels
  • cantilevers or anywhere where concrete structures need to be repaired or reprofiled by hand
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."
