Repoint VE

Repoint masonry with this color-matched Type N and Type O mortar formulated to be more fluid for application using a grout bag. Available in 11 standard colors and custom color matching. Where to use: Use with Repoint.

How to apply:

Enables bagging. Additional Information

Performance Characteristics

  • Developed for historic structures but can be used anywhere a Type O or Type N mortar is required.
  • Suitable for joint replacement on stone, brick, book tile, terracotta, and cast stone.
Low Shrinkage
  • Maintains integrity of repair, resists cracking.
Breathability
  • Will not cause damage to structure by restricting moisture vapor flow.
Single Component
  • Easy to batch in less than full pallet quantities.
Very low permeability
    • Resistant to deicing salts, chloride, chemical attack, and environmental pollution.
    • Available VE (Viscosity Enhanced) formulas to allow for pumping, bag install or when greater workability, extended working times are desired.

Description

  • RePoint is a Portland/Lime based mortar without the additives often found in masonry cement-based mortars. RePoint does not contain any polymers; it is a proprietary blend of Portland, lime, and sand.
  • Custom color-matching available.
  • 11 standard Masonry Restoration colors.

Preparation

  • Remove all loose and/or deteriorated material as well as any surface contaminants such as oil, paint, grease, etc.
  • Saturate substrate with clean water (saturated surface dry/SSD), with no standing water prior to Application to achieve proper curing.

Mixing

  • Empty contents of the bag or pail into an appropriate mixing vessel.
  • Add 4 to 5 parts powder to 1 part water depending on joint size and shape to achieve proper consistency.
  • Allow to prehydrate for 30 minutes to minimize shrinkage if required by specification.
  • Add additional water (half pint) to achieve desired consistency.
  • Do not retemper after desired consistency has been achieved.

Application

  • Apply using approved pointing technologies (see ASTM E2260) and finish with appropriate tooling.
  • RePoint VE is designed to be installed using a grout bag, mortar pump, or grouting sponge where applicable. Contact your Conproco rep for details.
  • Temperatures should be between 40° and 90°F.
  • Protect from rain and excessive moisture for 12 hours after installation.
  • Protect from below-freezing temperatures for 48 hours after installation.

Clean Up

  • When dry enough not to smear – cut mortar “tags” from the surface and then brush across joints with a dry, soft bristle brush. If a rougher texture is required a stiffer bristle brush can be used.
  • Cleaning with water and chemicals can be performed 3 days after curing. Test cleaning methods prior to beginning to ensure they will not adversely alter the color or texture of the joints.
  • Harsh acids may damage the integrity of the mortar if overused or not fully neutralized. Chemical manufacturers should be consulted prior to testing cleaning methods.
  • Clean tools and equipment with water immediately after use.
  • Cured material must be removed mechanically.

Curing

  • Mist the substrate after initial set (24 hours) to ensure hydration and minimize shrinkage cracking.

Color-matching repointing mortars by adding color in the field can produce shades of color that vary from batch to batch.  Factory blended mortars are more consistent but often require a higher minimum quantity than a project requires. Repoint can solve both issues. Repoint is a color matched repointing mortar (Type N & Type O) available in quantities from a single 50 lbs pail to unlimited skids in 50 lbs bags.

Both Repoint and Repoint VE meet the requirements of ASTM C387 and C270.
