A-Series Acid Resistant Mortar

CFC® A-Series Mortar

CFC® A-Series Mortar is an acid resistant mortar with resistance to most chemicals. It is designed to resist all acids except hydrofluoric.

Resistant to all acid exposures at concentrations ranging from 0.1-percent to 98-percent

What is Cold Fusion Concrete (CFC®)?

Geopolymer Solutions, LLC (GPS) has developed Cold Fusion Concrete (CFC ®). CFC® is a normal weight and lightweight, single dry material concrete, for water mixing. CFC® is resistant to most natural and man-made reagents including chlorides, sulfates, and various concentrations of acids including sulfuric* (.01 to 98%), hydrochloric (.01 to 85%), phosphoric (.01 to 75%), acetic (.01 to 80%), and nitric (.01 to 75%). CFC complies with the ASTMC C1157 Standard Performance Specification for Hydraulic Cement.

  • Resistant to all acid exposures at concentrations ranging from 0.1-percent to 98-percent
  • Resistant to all acids except hydrofluoric.
  • Resistant to hydrocarbons, chlorides, and sulfate exposure degradation.
  • Resistant to freeze and thaw cycles.
  • Resistant to solvent exposure.
  • Green Technology.
  • Can be colored.
  • Fiber reinforced (micro).
  • Interior and exterior applications.
  • Resistant to freeze and thaw cycles.
  • Can be used in hot or cold climates.
  • Improves corrosion protection.

RECOMMENDED USES

A-SERIES is successfully utilized in the Petrochemical, Fertilizer, Food & Beverage, Mining, and Military Industries, and the Oil & Gas Industry due to its chemical resistance and complete resistance to chloride and sulfate attack.

Resistant to all acid exposures at concentrations ranging from 0.1-percent to 98-percent

Packaging, Shelf Life Coverage

  • CFC® A-SERIES Mortar is supplied in 5 gallon Ready-to-Use Buckets.
  • CFC® A-SERIES Mortar has a shelf life of 2 years.
  • CFC® A-SERIES Mortar will install approximately 100 bricks per 5 gallon container.

Directions for Use

Prep – Pour desired amount of dry mortar into bucket, wheelbarrow etc.
Place unused mortar mix back into bucket and seal. Add water and mix. Use from 8% to 13% water based upon the mass of dry mortar.
How To Apply – Fill the Joints. Scoop mortar onto a brick, trowel or hawk, hold it up even with a bed joint, and push the mortar against the back of the joint with the tuck-pointing trowel. Eliminate voids with a few slicing passes of the trowel’s edge, then add more mortar until the joint is filled.

CLEANS UP WITH SOAP & WATER WHEN COHESIVE, AND JACKHAMMERS WHEN PROPERLY CURED.

Expected Characteristics

A-SERIES is successfully utilized in the Petrochemical, Fertilizer, Food & Beverage, Mining, and Military Industries, and the Oil & Gas Industry due to its chemical resistance and complete resistance to chloride and sulfate attack.
