Spray Applied Structural Repair Liner
Ultra high strength blended STRUCTURAL Mortar with Microsilica and Polypropylene fibers. Designed to repair and/or reinforce sewer structures such as Manholes, Lift Stations, Waste Water Treatment Plants and/or any aged concrete or masonry structures. Product can be SHOTCRETE, hand applied, or pumped into place. Product is a well proportioned blend of quality materials such as MICROSILICA, and other HIGH STRENGTH ADMIXTURES to enhance workability, bonding, strength, and resistance to harsh h2s gas/chemical attacks. Product comes in a prepackaged 50lbs bag and 3000 lbs bulk bags. Product conforms to industry standards ACI 201.2R-01 Guide to Durable Concrete and ASTM F 2551-09 Standard Practice for Installing a Protective Cementitious Liner System in Sanitary Sewer Manholes.

Materials for Use in Wet or Dry Shotcrete
The performance of dry process shotcrete
cannot be duplicated in the laboratory. In
spite of that fact, laboratory data are important
for quality control purposes and for making
comparisons between formulations.
Manhole Mortar products have been
extensively tested both in the laboratory and
in the field. The greatly enhanced performance
in the field shows the benefits of low
water/cement ratio and high compaction.
The field test data are offered only as an
example of what can be achieved with qualified
operators using proper techniques. The
quality of wet process shotcreting is very
dependent on the skills of the operator.
Table 1 shows typical laboratory data for
shotcretes with and without fibers
Additionally, Manhole Mortar complies with
Grades SR (Sulfate-Resistant) and LP (Low
Permeability). Manhole Mortar with
Steel Fibers complies with Grade FR (Fiber-
Reinforced), Class II. Southern Trenchless Solutions LLC..also offers custom
designs to meet other types and grades
of ASTM C1480, as well as job specific specifications.

5. Installation EQUIPMENT
Manhole Mortar MSP is normally applied using
wet process shotcrete machinery. Wet process
shotcrete is a very efficient method for making
repairs to horizontal, vertical and overhead surfaces.
The process allows for the placement of
the repair material at a very low water/cement
ratio with a high degree of compaction. The
result is a repair that is superior to other methods
of placement of repair material.
Manhole Mortar can also be applied
using wet process shotcrete machinery. The
performance will be enhanced by the appropriate
choice of admixtures. Consult a local
Southern Trenchless Solutions LLC. representative for details.
Southern Trenchless Solutions LLC. recommends that job mock-ups be prepared by the contractor and tested prior to beginning a project.
Southern Trenchless Solutions LLC.
recommends that the applicator be ACI certified and that American Concrete
Institute (ACI) Committee 506 or ASTM F 2551-09 Standard Practice for Installing a Protective Cementitious Liner System in Sanitary Sewer Manholes procedures be followed for surface preparation, equipment, nozzleman certification and shotcrete placement and curing procedures. Refer to the following
• ACI 506R-90 Guide to Shotcrete
• ACI 506.2-95 Specifications for Shotcrete
• ACI 506.1R-98 Committee Report on Fiber
• ACI CP-60 Craftsman Workbook for ACI
Certification of Shotcrete Nozzleman
Application Over Concrete Surfaces
Remove all spalled, severely cracked,
deteriorated, loose and unsound concrete
from existing concrete surface by chipping,
water blasting or other mechanical methods.
Adequate prewetting of the concrete substrates
should be done prior to shotcreting.
