VINABOND® N510 is a copolymer powder of vinyl acetate and ethylene and is dispersible in water. Compounds modified with VINBOND® N510 exhibit improved adhesion, flexural strength in bending, deformability, abrasion resistance and are easier to process. Leveling, thixotropy and water retention are essentially unaffected. The product is ideal for use in combination with other mortar additives intended to enhance specific properties.
VINABOND® N510 contains a fine mineral filler as an anti-blocking agent. It is produced without the addition of organic solvents, plasticizers and film- forming agents.
For the production of ready-mixed dry mortars, such as adhesives and troweling compounds, blend VINABOND® N510 with the other dry ingredients in appropriate equipment. Temperatures should not be allowed to rise excessively during mixing because otherwise the dispersible polymer powder could agglomerate and lead to the formation of small lumps of resin. The mortar is prepared for use by adding the recommended amount of water and mixing mechanically or by hand. Since hand mixing generates little shear force, we recommend allowing the fresh mortar to slake for 5 minutes and then stirring it again. This is usually unnecessary where mechanical mixers are employed.
