FORTA® STUCCO-BOND® is an easy to apply and finish, fully oriented, 100% virgin homopolymer polypropylene monofilament fibrous reinforcement. This engineered fiber provides a mini-reinforcing system forming a more cohesive, inner-supported mix that functions as a plastic shrinkage reinforcement intended to reduce the formation of shrinkage cracks prior to initial set. FORTA® STUCCO-BOND® is non-corrosive, non-magnetic, chemically inert, and 100% Alkali Proof!
FORTA® STUCCO-BOND® is used in interior or exterior mortar and stucco applications to control plastic shrinkage cracking while improving basic durability properties. Requires No Mix Design or Placement Changes!
Recommended standard dosage rate of FORTA® STUCCO-BOND® is 4 to 6 oz. per 100 pounds of stucco/ mortar added directly to the mixing system during, or after, the batching of the other ingredients and mixed at the time and speed recommended by the mixer manufacturer (usually four to five minutes).
