HYDRAPEL MORTAR ADMIXTURE is a dry-blended formula based on new generation hydrophobic powders and other key ingredients. This dry polymer-based admixture imparts water repellency, efflorescence control, and increased mortar bond strength without affecting plastic mortar properties or slowing construction rate. It is available for use in both dry packaged cements/mortars as well as jobsite-produced mortars.

HYDRAPEL MORTAR ADMIXTURE meets the performance criteria of ASTM C1384 (Standard Specification for Admixtures for Masonry Mortar) for both water repellent and bond enhancer. It is highly effective at resisting wind-driven rain per ASTM E514 (extended to 72hrs) and is a vital component of the HYDRAPEL SYSTEM. HYDRAPEL MORTAR ADMIXTURE is also recommended for use in stucco, masonry grout fill, and other similar products exposed to moisture in service.  

  • User-friendly, does not alter plastic properties
  • For site addition and pre-blended applications
  • Provides water repellency and controls efflorescence
  • Increases bond to masonry units and other substrates
