SILICIC ACID ESTER REMMERS KSE 510

Remmers KSE 510 is suitable for strengthening coarse-pored, absorbent, mineral building materials with strong loss of cohesion, preferably sand-stone.

It can also be used to strengthen historical renders and joints.

 

 

Properties

 

Remmers KSE 510 reacts with water stored in the pore system or humidity. During this reaction, amorphous and hydrous silicon dioxide (SiO2,aq, "silica gel") is deposited as a binder. The mineral silica gel binder thus replaces the original binder lost through weathering. The speed of the gel deposit reaction is very dependent on temperature and humidity. Under normal conditions (20 °C, 50 % relative humidity), the deposit of binder is concluded after approx. 3 weeks.

 

Reaction:

Si(C2H5O)4 + 4H2O  → Si(OH)4 + 4C2H5OH ↑

Si(OH)4 → SiO2 + 2H2O
