Vetonite: material features

Vetonit (Vetonit) is a trade mark that produces powdered building mixtures used for a wide range of finishing and construction work. Among the most popular products are the finishing coat for walls and ceilings, floor leveling screeds and tile adhesives. The products were widely distributed due to their excellent qualities and affordable prices. The production of dry mixes in Russia is carried out by the Weber-Vetonit company, which is a branch division of the international industrial and construction group Saint-Gobain. The article will discuss the main features of dry mixes vetonit.

Briefly about the manufacturer

  • The Saint-Gobain company is one of the largest corporations in the world for the production of construction products. It was founded in France in the middle of the 17th century, and today it has 1.5 thousand companies in more than 60 countries around the world. The headquarters are located in Paris. Building mixtures are just one of the four areas of activity in which the corporation invariably occupies a leading position..

  • In 1992, the Weber company, specializing in the production of building materials, joined the industrial group Saint-Gobain. The history of “Weber” dates back to the beginning of the 20th century, when J. Weber and Zh-B. Bruten began to produce facade plasters. Today the company “Saint-Gobain Weber” has more than 200 branches in 42 countries, and after the acquisition of the industrial group “Maxit” (MaxitGroup), its factories appeared in the Russian Federation..
  • All manufactured products meet the highest European requirements, which is confirmed by international quality certificates. Vetonit is a versatile and highly specialized materials for finishing almost any surface..

Consumers who opt for vetonite are guaranteed to get an excellent result, but due to what it is possible to achieve this?

Vetonite characteristics

Putty vetonite

  • Putty mixtures are used for the final leveling of surfaces, the quality of their application directly affects the overall impression and appearance of the finished renovated room. Vetonit putties create a perfectly flat surface, and their main purpose is to seal cracks, layers and cracks after rough basic construction work.

  • Like all types of putty, Vetonit mixtures are divided into three subspecies: cement, polymer and gypsum. Basically, these are finishing putties intended for cladding ceilings and walls. The basis for their application can be a variety of materials – concrete, drywall, brick, gypsum and others, even a putty has been developed, which is applied to painted surfaces.
  • Mixes are versatile and can be used both indoors and outdoors. Although putties create a perfectly flat and smooth surface, they still do not possess special decorative qualities, therefore, it is allowed to apply almost any decorating materials on top of the layer – wallpaper, embossed plaster, tiles, acrylic or water-based paints, and so on. The putties themselves are not adhesives.

Main competitive advantages

  • These are environmentally friendly products that are created only from components that are safe for humans and nature..
  • Due to the excellent water resistance, the mixtures are versatile and can be used even in such premises as swimming pools (the packaging should be marked “waterproof mixture”).
  • Powdery mixtures have such a fine fraction that the applied layer acquires an ideal almost mirror-like smoothness..
  • The applied layers of putty are not afraid of adverse weather events, including frost, rain or hail, which means they are able to reliably serve even with facade finishing for many years. In addition, products have been developed that can be applied even at negative temperatures (snowflake marking on the package).
  • The putty layer enhances the heat-insulating and sound-absorbing properties of the walls and ceiling.

Technical specifications

  • Release form. All Weber putty products are produced in three-layer paper bags, the middle layer of which is made of polyethylene (dry powder) 5, 20 and 25 kg each or in plastic containers (pasty substance) 10-12 liters each.
  • Astringent. Cement, polymer glue, limestone, gypsum can act as a binder..
  • Main purpose. There are several types of putty, distinguished by their main purpose:

  • Finished composition color. The main shades of the applied layer are white, gray or yellow, which corresponds to the color of the acquired dry mix.
  • Granule size. Fine-grained powder mixture, the size of which is 0.3-0.5 mm, the fraction of a pasty substance is not more than 0.06 mm.
  • Temperature. The surface during processing and the ambient temperature should be in the range from +5 to +25 degrees (for frost-resistant species from -10 degrees).
  • Vetonite product consumption. On a surface of 1 m2, when applying a layer of 1 mm, 1.2-1.4 kg of dry matter will be required, the consumption when filling the joints is 100-200 g / m2.
  • Volume of water for mixing the mixture. To prepare the putty, it is necessary to add 290-350 ml of water per 1 kg of powdery substance..
  • Viability. The prepared cement mixture should be used within 2 hours, after which it loses its quality, it is not recommended to dilute it again, if the composition includes polymer binders, then the viability of the finished solution can be 12-24 hours, and if stored in a closed container, up to 2 -x days.
  • Complete drying time. The applied layer hardens within 3 hours, for complete drying, you should wait at least a day, the greater the layer thickness and the number of layers, the longer it takes to dry.
  • Applied layer thickness. It is recommended to apply 1-3 mm at a time (depending on the brand of goods, a layer of up to 5 mm can be applied in one pass).
  • Frost resistance. At least 75 freeze / thaw cycles for powdered products and 10 cycles for ready-made solutions.
  • Strength factor. After one month, the layer is able to withstand mechanical stress up to 10 MPa.
  • Coefficient of adhesion. Adhesion to surface approximately 0.9-1 MPa.
  • Shelf life. The product can retain its quality for 12-18 months, while maintaining the integrity of the original packaging, as well as under proper storage conditions – a dry room, where the air humidity is no more than 60%.

Stages of work

  • Putting putty mixtures on the surface to be treated can be applied both manually and mechanically using automatic installations.
  • The substrate is properly prepared – free of dust and dirt, it must be strong, dry, hard and free from substances that reduce adhesion (oil or grease stains). In the room in which the decoration takes place, windows and doors must be closed in order to exclude the possibility of drafts..

  • To prepare the solution, pour the required amount of water into a large container, preferably made of plastic, the temperature of which is approximately equal to 20-25 degrees (no more than 40 ° C). Then dry powder is poured into the container (it is not recommended to change the sequence) and thoroughly mixed with a construction mixer or a drill with a special nozzle for 5 minutes. After that, the prepared mixture is kept for at least 10 minutes, for better dissolution of the binder, stir again and you can start using.

  • When applying several layers of vetonite putty, it is necessary to dry each previous one. Dried surface, before further finishing, it is recommended to grind with fine sandpaper and clean it from dust.

Vetonite plaster

Several types of dry plaster mixes from the Weber-Vetonit company are supplied to the Russian construction market, which are produced both directly at factories in Russia and in other countries, for example, in Finland.

  • Vetonit plasters are, as a rule, cement mixtures, in which sand and limestone can be used as aggregates, and additional components such as microfiber are added. The most popular product is considered to be Weber.Vetonit TT products – a universal plaster for most substrates.
  • Decorative plasters that can create a unique relief have become widespread. They can be applied on surfaces previously treated with any kind of plaster (cement, gypsum, lime-cement), as well as on gypsum plasterboard and gypsum fiber substrates..

Main competitive advantages

  • The products can be used on most known materials – concrete, aerated concrete, ceramic or silicate bricks, foam concrete and so on, preparing the base for subsequent finishing with tiles, glass or plastic plates, as well as for applying putty.

  • Vetonit plaster is distinguished by its special frost resistance and water resistance, due to which it can be used for facade work, as well as for plastering bathrooms, warehouses and other rooms with high humidity or low temperatures.
  • Shrinkage-free hardening and excellent adhesion to the surface.

Technical specifications

  • Release form. The manufacturer delivers its goods in paper bags with packaging of 5, 20 and 25 kg. Decorative plasters can be produced in the form of a ready-made solution, in a plastic container of 15 kg.
  • Astringent. The binder is cement.
  • Main purpose. Depending on the type of product, it can be used in the following cases:
  • Finished coat and mixture color. The shade of the resulting layer is gray for simple plasters and light gray for products intended for subsequent painting.

  • Granule size. The powdery substance has a maximum fraction size of not more than 1 mm. Decorative plasters, depending on the texture, have a fraction of 1.5 to 4 mm.
  • Temperature. The solution can be applied at temperatures from +5 to +30 degrees, if the packaging is marked with an asterisk or the inscription “winter” is written, then the plaster is used in the cold season, at temperatures from -10 degrees.
  • Vetonite product consumption. To apply a layer of 1 mm on an area of ​​1 m2, from 1.2 kg to 2.4 kg of dry matter is consumed.
  • Volume of water for mixing the mixture. Water consumption per 1 kg of dry matter from 160 ml to 300 ml (the exact amount is always indicated on the package and you must follow the recommendations to get the finished layer as strong and high quality as possible).
  • Viability. Cement mortars very quickly lose their viability, as a rule, it fluctuates within 2-3 hours.
  • Complete drying time. Each applied layer must be kept for up to 2 days and only after this period of time, you can proceed to subsequent repair work. Within a week after finishing, the plaster gains 50% strength.
  • Applied layer thickness. Vetonite plaster can be applied in one pass with a layer of 2 to 10 mm, maximum thickness 3 cm.
  • Frost resistance. Dry powder is able to withstand 75-100 full freeze / thaw cycles.
  • Strength factor. After 28-31 days, the applied plaster is able to withstand a load equal to 6-8 MPa.
  • Coefficient of adhesion. On a concrete base, the bond strength will be within 0.5 MPa.
  • Shelf life. It is necessary to store the goods in the original packaging, without damaging its integrity. In a dry room, the product is able to retain its properties and qualities for 1 year.

Stages of work

  • The surface for applying the mortar must be properly prepared. To do this, it is cleaned of dust and dirt, if necessary, the base is reinforced with a reinforcing mesh. If there are oil or grease stains, these should be removed as they will reduce adhesion. All those with large irregularities are repaired. Before applying the diluted mixture to the concrete base, it must be treated with a primer so that the concrete does not absorb moisture from the solution..

  • Mix the solution in clean water at room temperature (20-25 degrees). Be sure to follow the sequence in which dry powder is added to the liquid, and not vice versa. To improve adhesion, 10% of the water can be replaced with a dispersion primer. Stir the solution with a construction mixer or drill until all the lumps dissolve. In the process of application, the finished mixture is stirred without additional addition of water or other liquid..

  • When finishing facades, it is important to protect the applied layer from rain, snow and direct sunlight for 24 hours. The resulting decorative surfaces can be painted after 72 hours; to reduce paint consumption, it is recommended to treat the embossed layer with a silicone or silicate primer.

Self-leveling floors / floor leveler

Self-leveling floors are self-leveling mixtures used for floor screed. Weber.vetonite products allow you to create a perfectly flat surface, with a layer thickness of 1 mm to 25 cm in one pass. The solution can be used for flooring in residential and office premises, both in new buildings and in structures with a long service life..

Main competitive advantages

  • The resulting surface has an almost mirror-like appearance and does not require additional grinding or leveling.
  • Can be used as a base for any floor covering, even for subsequent finishing with very thin materials.
  • Due to its high compressive strength, the finished coating is able to withstand heavy loads, in addition, the internal reinforcement allows the use of the mixture even on deforming surfaces.

  • The mixture has the fastest possible set of strength, which allows you to walk on the poured layer in an hour, and lay the floor coverings in 2 hours.
  • Can be used even on difficult substrates, for example, over old wooden floors, ceramic tiles and other materials, thanks to the addition of special polymer components to the composition.
  • Forms a soundproof, heat-resistant and moisture-resistant layer.

Technical specifications

  • Release form. It is produced in the form of a dry powder, packaged in three-layer paper bags of 5 and 25 kg, for reliable protection against environmental influences, the middle layer of the package is made of polyethylene.
  • Astringent. Special cements are used as a binder.
  • Main purpose. The mixtures are intended for:
  • Finished composition color. The shade of the mixture is determined by the presence of cement in the composition, which gives the finished layer a gray tint.
  • Granule size. The maximum size of the powdery substance is from 0.6 mm to 3 mm.
  • Temperature. The solution is poured in rooms with an air temperature from +10 to +25 degrees, it is considered optimal to maintain the temperature within + 15- + 20 degrees.
  • Vetonite product consumption. When applying a layer of 1 mm on an area of ​​1 m2, 1.4-1.8 kg of dry matter is consumed.
  • Volume of water for mixing the mixture. To prepare a working solution, 200-300 ml of liquid is added per 1 kg of dry matter.
  • Viability. The prepared mixture requires immediate use, as after 15 minutes it begins to solidify.
  • Complete drying time. After 1 hour it is allowed to walk on the flooded layer, after 2-3 hours the floor covering can be laid.
  • Applied layer thickness. It is allowed to make a layer, the thickness of which varies from 1 mm to 25 cm.
  • Shrinkage. A month after application, the layer may shrink up to 0.5 mm / m.
  • Strength factor. After 28 days, the self-leveling floor is able to withstand a load of up to 30 MPa.
  • Coefficient of adhesion. Adhesion to concrete base 1 MPa.
  • Shelf life. The bags with the mixture are stored unpacked in a dry place for 6-12 months from the date of production..

Stages of work

  • The mixture is used indoors. When pouring the floor, it is necessary to tightly close the windows and doors and maintain a constant temperature within + 10- + 25 degrees for at least 7 days.
  • The base for the self-leveling floor must be cleaned of dust, and also make sure that it is dry and durable (if it is concrete, then it must stand for at least 2-3 months). If the top layer of the surface to be treated has exfoliating materials, they should be removed. The place of possible leakage of the mixture is closed without fail.

  • It is best to prime the surface with a special compound, for example, the dispersion “Weber Vetonite MD 16”. If more than 1 layer is supposed to be applied, then each of them must be processed accordingly. Dispersions and primers prevent the formation of air bubbles and provide better adhesion to the substrate.

  • To prepare the working solution, clean water is poured into a plastic or silicone container, and then the dry components are poured and everything is thoroughly mixed with a construction mixer.
  • It is best to use the mixture right away. It can be applied both manually and mechanically. It is optimal to fill in strips, the width of which varies between 30-50 cm.Start from the corner, the poured solution is spread with a steel spatula and rolled with a needle roller (to release the existing air).

  • It is not allowed to take breaks during pouring, if too large an area is processed, then it should be divided into small sections, setting limiters.
