H & B PF56 I/E is a building material that is applied as the finishing coat onto a new or existing building in a single operation.
PF56 I/E is a render with excellent fire rating and high impact properties and also offers additional acoustic andthermal properties when combined to our H & B patented building System
Applied as final render coat for external, internal walls and ceilings
An patented aqueous gypsum / cement plaster composition mixed with water is sprayed as pumpable, relatively fluid composition or manually applied by hand trowel.
The mixture has sufficient viscositythat it does not slump on contact permitting a vertical or overhead layer up to 20 mm.
A LAYER OF 5 – 20 mm CAN BE APPLIED IN JUST ONE OPERATION
H&B PF56 I/E IMMEDIATELY STARTS BINDING TO THE BASE MATERIAL AND ALLOWING FOR A SINGLE, CONTINUOUS APPLICATION!
Our PF56 I/E is made with an organic, mineral based solution the resulting building material is generally more environmentally and user friendly than traditional cement based systems.
PF56 I/E has a polypropylene fibre blended into the dry mix that gives it more ability to resist cracking, making for a very stable final finish coat.
Additionally, PF56 I/E can be used in a variety of ways, as a stand-alone product applied to materials such as EPS panels or Perlite reinforced with
a nylon mesh or combined with our ThermCon 500/600 for a very robust render with high impact resistance for a complete through the wall solution.
PF56 I/E can be applied by hand or by using a render spray machine. The product can be applied to all types of surfaces, brick, fibre board, concrete, OSB board, etc.
For best results for fire and thermal performance!
PF56 I/E is supplied in both 20kg and 25kg bags depending on the region. The product is made up of a unique patented blend of calcined gypsum, hydraulic cement and sand.
Hardening of the mixture takes about 60 minutes.
After hardening, PF56 I/E is of a mechanical strength to provide a high impact render for either external or internal final coat.
HANDLING & STORAGE
No special protective measures or hazardous goods protection are necessary when transporting H & B products. H & B products are generally stored in
25kg bags and need to be protected like any other cement based material free from moisture and humidity.
Store all H & B products off the ground in a protected, dry location.
H & B products do not require any special handling, equipment as they are a mineral based material without any known side effects.
For safe keeping H & B material should not be stored below 5 degrees or in temperatures in excess of 35 degrees.
Avoid storing in direct sunlight.
The shelf life of H & B products if properly stored and sealed is 6 to 9 months.
Do not apply when the air temperature is below 2 degrees or over 35 degrees. H & B products must never be applied in freezing conditions where
the substrate has likely been frozen.
Avoid spraying in very dry conditions as this can affect the reaction time and cause potential surface cracking. Always take into account the solar gain
from direct sunlight and plan to avoid, where possible, spraying H & B products onto surfaces that are heated.
If unavoidable, spraying clean water onto the surface immediately before applying H & B products is recommended.
When the substrate surfaces are sustaining direct sunlight, follow the recommendations on the surface preparation.
Avoid spraying in direct sunlight.
Surfaces such as brick or concrete may need to be prepared by scrabbling or removing old, loose render.
There isn’t a need to apply an expensive bonding product for better results.
You should always check that the surface is not hot due to direct sunlight as this may dehydrate the material too rapidly. If hot and dry, apply water.
When spraying onto existing surfaces, the surface must be free of all bond-inhibiting materials, including dirt, grease, formwork release oils and any
other foreign matter.
Any loose or damaged material must be totally removed and or repaired.
When spraying onto a light steel frame with mesh attached as per instructions make sure all mesh is thoroughly attached, check that all mesh goes to a
width of 10mm of an intersection or door/window jamb.
If you are spraying close to objects that need protecting from over spray, this is the time to do so.
HEALTH & SAFETY
When mixed, H & B products pose very low health risks to the operators and users of the products. However, prolonged contact may cause irritation and dermatitis.
Care should be exercised when handlingany dry mix as inhaled dust may result in respiratory irritation.
It is recommended that when opening bags and at the mixing stage a respiratory face mask is used.
Although contact with any H & B products is non-hazardous, caution still needs to be observed and site regulations followed during their use.
As on any construction site, it is recommended that personnel should wear protective clothing, hand, head and eye protection in order to prevent accidental injury
during loading of the mixer/pump, mixing preparation, spray application and any general use.
Transport – No special protective measures or hazardous goods markings are necessary.
Disposal – Dispose of in accordance with local, state or federal regulations.
Clean Up – Clean tools and equipment with water immediately after use. Dried material can only be removed mechanically.
Health Hazard Information:
No adverse health effects expected if the product is handled in accordance with this Safety Data Sheet and the product label.
Symptoms that may arise if the product is mishandled are:
Swallowed: Ingesting large amounts may result in nausea and minor discomfort.
Eye: Any fine dust may be an eye irritant.
Skin: Contact with skin may result in irritation. Repeated or prolonged skin contact may lead to irritant contact dermatitis.
Inhaled: Inhalation of dust may result in respiratory irritation.
Swallowed: Rinse mouth with water. Give plenty of water to drink. Seek medical advice
Eye: Irrigate with copious quantities of water for fifteen minutes. In all cases of eye contamination it is a sensible precaution to seek medical advice.
Skin: Wash contaminated skin with plenty of water. If irritation occurs seek medical advice.
Inhaled: Remove victim from exposure. Seek medical advice if effects persist.
