Wykamol SBR Latexis a Styrene Butadiene Copolymer Latex which is specially modified to be compatible with cement based mixes. It may be incorporated into cementations render screeds or patching mixes in order to improve adhesion and abrasion resistance. It can be used internally or externally and in areas of continuous or intermittent water contact. Wykamol SBR Latex improves the chemical and water resistance of cementations mixes and is recommended for use in effluent tanks, dairies, food factories, fertiliser stores etc.


Where specific building methods are covered by British Standard Codes of Practice, i.e. rendering and floor screeds, these should be followed as a guide to good building practice.

All surfaces must be sound and free from laitance, paint, grease, oil, surface water or any other contaminant which may adversely affect adhesion.

Surfaces of high suction should be thoroughly dampened before the application of bonding primers remove excess water from the surface before continuing.

The sand to be used in the mixes should be well graded, clean and meet the appropriate British standards.
