X-TITE® SBA MT

MULTI TEMPERATURE GRADE TWO PART EPOXY SEGMENTAL BRIDGE ADHESIVE

Product Description

X-TITE® SBA MT Segmental Bridge Adhesive is a high build, solvent free thixotropic epoxy resin specifically developed for use as an adhesive for precast segmental bridge elements.

It is suitable for use at different temperatures (mixed product) range of 20C to 40C and can be applied in ambient temperatures from 5C to 40C.

A FAST SET hardener is available for lower temperatures with shorter pot life and open time. A SLOW SET hardener is available for high ambient temperatures with longer pot life and open time. SLOW SET hardener can also be used for large segments when extended pot life and open time is required.

Important Note: The products are formulated to be used at a temperature of ±5C on the temperature of mixed material shown above without any loss of performance. The only effect will be a change in pot life and open time which the installer will accommodate in their method of working.

Installation Guidelines

X-Tite® SBA MT should be applied by experienced application crews. X-Calibur provides detailed method statements on all its products for use in various applications. These must be referred to prior to starting work. The information below is a summary intended for guidance only. 

Surface Preparation

The substrate must be structurally sound. Loose or unsound concrete should be removed and made good. Surfaces must be entirely free of oil, grease, paint, corrosion deposits, dust, laitance or other surface deposits. Grit blast or hydro blast if required.

Mixing

Thoroughly mix the base ‘Part A’ prior to adding the hardener ‘Part B’ using a slow speed drill (350 rpm) fitted with an X-Roc Epoxy Mortar Mixer Paddle. After mixing the base, add all the hardener and mix for a further 3 minutes or until both components have fully dispersed and are uniform in color. Be sure to rotate the mixer throughout the drum. Note: When mixing full packs ensure all the hardener is added to the base. It will be necessary to use a scraper to remove all of the hardener from the sides of the can.

Application

Apply by trowel or gloved hand to either both segment faces or a single segment face as per the work method employed. Work into the substrate to ensure complete wetting out of the surface. Join the segments firmly together within the stated open time. X-Tite® SBA MT can be applied by low pressure pump and a static mixer to provide mixed material direct to the segment face. Contact CORKJOINT for more details.

Clean Up

Remove uncured material from equipment using X-Shield Solvent S. Cured material can only be removed by mechanical means.

Limitations

  • Do not part mix packs
  • Do not leave in the pail once mixing is completed
    Do not add fillers or solvents
  • Do not apply below 5C
  • Avoid excessive application
  • Avoid skin contact
  • Do not dispose unmixed components into landfill or water
