Published:  24 July, 2017

Mapei is transferring production of Planitop Smooth and Repair R2 to its West Midlands manufacturing centre. The rapid-setting thixotropic and fibre-reinforced, cementitious mortar can be applied in a single layer from 3mm to 40mm thickness and is suitable for repairing and smoothing concrete.

Paul Russell, Concrete Product Manager at Mapei, said: “Planitop Smooth and Repair is an all- encompassing repair and smoothing mortar that has been used throughout Europe for many years. The success of this product within the UK has now enabled Mapei UK to produce this material at our Halesowen production facilities.”

Planitop Smooth and Repair R2, can be used on non-structural repairs and smoothing layers on internal and external, horizontal and vertical concrete surfaces, suitable for repairing structures exposed to the open air or in permanent contact with water.

It can also be used for quick repairs to deteriorated parts in concrete such as corners of beams, as well as for the speedy smoothing over of surface defects in cast concrete, such as honeycombs, spacer holes and construction joints.
