Powder Processing

Elotex redispersible powders can be blended in all commercial positive mixers with other dry additives to

produce finished products in powder form. Since Elotex redispersible powders exhibit thermoplastic

behaviour, mixing times should be as short as possible, and significant temperature rise caused by strong

shear forces should be avoided. All hydraulically and non-hydraulically curing dry mixtures with Elotex

redispersible powder may be easily mixed with water before application.

For mixing finished products in powder form, one usually places the required amount of mixing water in a

suitable vessel and add the powder mixture under agitation. Too intensive agitation of the mixture may

result in unwanted air inclusion. Before application, one should allow the mixture to stand for a short time.

Depending on the properties of the other additives, the standing time will be in the range of approx. 1-5

minutes. MP2050

Packaging and Storage

Standard packaging: 25 kg paper sacks with polyethylene liners.

Other types of packaging such as Big Bags or silo wagons are possible on request.

As a basic rule it is recommended to store Elotex redispersible powder in a dry location at temperatures

below 25°C and to process within six months. Sacks that are stored under pressure, damaged or left

open for an extended period tend to cause blocking of the redispersible powder.
