AQUAFIN’s MEGA-MORTAR-IC is a fiber reinforced, 1-component, ready
mixed cementitious, high strength, structural patching mortar, enhanced with
Aquafin’s state-of-the art crystalline waterproofing technology. It can be
troweled or sprayed and is shrinkage compensated.
Concrete and masonry that require patching or resurfacing in. Particularly
suited for storm water and sewer manholes, waste water treatment plants,
tunnels and parking garages.
• Easy-to-use; just add water, non flammable, non-toxic
• Not a vapor barrier
• Low shrinkage, fiber reinforced
• Trowel or spray apply
• Substrates must be dry, of load bearing capacity, hardened and be
free from potential bond breakers such as dirt, dust, grease, oil, sealers,
curing compounds, form release agents, laitance, loose toppings,
foreign substances and adhesive residue, etc.
• Only proceed with application when the temperatures remain between
40°F and 90°F (4°C and 32°C) and protect from freezing for
24 hours after application. For temperatures above 85°F (29°C),
follow ACI hot-weather application guidelines to ensure a successful
• All surfaces to be repaired should be damp (SSD (saturated
surface dry)) but have no standing water. Hot surfaces should be
cooled and shaded while cold surfaces should be heated and
sheltered. Mechanically remove all loose materials by suitable means
such as chipping hammer, chisel, sandblast, waterblast, or similar
• For proper adhesion, the concrete substrate must have a fractured
• All exposed steel reinforcement must be cleaned to a white metal finish
and primed with an anti-corrosion coating.
• Repair areas should have saw-cut straight edges with a minimum of
1/4” (6 mm) depth (avoid featheredging).
Measure: 0.9 - 1.2 gal water per 50 lb bag powder (3.4 - 4.5 L per
22.7 kg) depending on type of application.

All data are averages of several tests under laboratory conditions. In practice, climatic
variations such as temperature and humidity may affect these values.
Packaging & Approx. Yield: 50 lb (22.7 kg) bags.
• 0.42 ft3 (0.012 m3) or
• 10 ft2 (0.9 m2 ) at 1/2” (12.7 mm) thickness..
Storage and Shelf Life:
12 months when stored dry in the original, unopened packaging.
• Add MEGA-MORTAR-IC powder to water and mix thoroughly for at
least 3 minutes with a mechanical mixer to a stiff mortar consistency for
repairs, and a pumpable consistency for spray (gunite) applications.
Adjust water using small quantities until proper consistency is obtained.
1. Apply a small amount of mixed MEGAMORTAR-IC to the SSD substrate.
Work material into the entire substrate and cavity to promote proper
2. Trowel or spray apply MEGA-MORTAR-IC in lifts of 1/4” to 2” (6 - 50
mm) into the wet scrub coat before it dries, keying in and compact
thoroughly. Note: Use air-pneumatic, low pressure spray equipment with
8-air jet gun and 3/8” to 1/2” (10 - 12 mm) orifice for optimum output.
Spray material in circular motion at right angle to the substrate, keeping
a distance of 1 to 2 ft (300 - 600 mm) to avoid excessive re-bound and
3. A 2nd layer may be applied as soon as the 1st layer has sufficiently
hardened. Leave surface of 1st layer rough, to provide good
mechanical bond for 2nd layer.
4. Finish final layer with steel trowel or sponge float. MEGA-MORTARIC can be screeded or shaped to a reasonably smooth finish. Use
AQUAFIN-1K as a final coat if a smoother finish is required.
• MEGA-MORTAR-IC may be used in connection with a bonding agent
(acrylic or epoxy).

• MEGA-MORTAR-IC can be top coated with AQUAFIN-IC cementitious
crystalline waterproofing where enhanced waterproofing or chemical
resistance is desired. Apply AQUAFIN-IC while MEGA-MORTAR-IC
surface is still fresh to assure seamless, tight bond.
Damp cure for 3 days. Begin curing as soon as the patch has set by
keeping surface moist as per ACI recommendations for Portland cement
concrete, using burlap, polyethylene or a fine mist of water. If this is not
practicable, coat with an approved water based curing compound,
(contact Aquafin Technical Department for approved products). However,
curing compound may adversely affect following lifts of mortar, leveling
mortar or protective coatings.
Before material hardens, thoroughly clean tools with water after use.
