New filling compound: higher flexibility and material savings

Heinrich Hahne GmbH & Co. KG has developed a new one-component mineral filling compound, which serves as primer coat, mortar and corrosion protection. The product „Vesterol MS 55 HSP“ of Hahne is based on cement, filler, high-speed puzzolan, selected additives and the mineral lightweight aggregate Poraver.

Using Poraver expanded glass granulates, the filling compound gets very efficient and is easy to process. For a layer thickness of 1 mm just 1.25 kg/m² are necessary. Compared to other products, the customers save about 15 weight percent of material. In addition to this, the repair filler is...
