Fosroc – Renderoc HB30 (22kg)

High-performance fibre reinforced lightweight concrete reinstatement mortar conforming to the requirements of BS EN 1504-3 Class R3


For the reinstatement of concrete where low permeability characteristics are required but where high compressive strength is not the most important consideration. If high compressive strength is required Renderoc HB45 should be used.

Renderoc HB30 has been specifically developed for vertical and overhead repair work where its lightweight nature and high build characteristics make it ideal.

Renderoc HB30 is suitable for repair methods 3.1, 3.3, 7.1,

7.2 as defined by BS EN 1504-3.


  • Maximum compatibility with concrete of compressive strength 20 – 35 N/mm²
  • Lightweight formulation enables extra high-build — fewer cold joints
  • Frequently obviates the need for formwork
  • Polymer modification provides extremely low permeability to water, carbon dioxide and chlorides
  • Exceptional system of shrinkage compensation provides long-term dimensional stability
  • Can be applied quickly and efficiently by wet spraying
  • One component, pre-bagged to overcome site-batched variations
  • Contains no chloride admixtures


Renderoc HB30 is supplied as a ready-to-use blend of dry powders requiring only the site addition of clean water to produce a highly consistent, lightweight repair mortar.

It is based on Portland cement, graded aggregates, lightweight fillers, and chemical additives which provide a mortar with good handling characteristics while minimising water demand. The low water requirement ensures good strength gain and long-term durability.

Renderoc HB30 has been specifically engineered for vertical and overhead repair work. It can be applied in sections up to 85mm thickness in vertical locations and up to 75 mm thickness in overhead locations in a single application and without the use of formwork.

Thicker sections can be achieved by the use of formwork or can be built up in layers. Deep pockets can sometimes be filled in a single application dependent on the configuration of the pocket and the volume of exposed reinforcing steel.

Renderoc HB30 can be quickly and efficiently applied by the wet spray technique. Consult the local Fosroc office for further information.

The material should not be applied at less than 10 mm thickness.

applied samples may vary. Maximum build thickness is dependent on the location of repair, water content and application technique.

Standards compliance

Renderoc HB30 complies with the class R3 according to

EN1504-3, repair methods 3.1, 3.3, 7.1 and 7.2.

Application instructions


Form a square edge perimeter to the repair area using appropriate methods (feather edging must be avoided), break out the complete repair area up to a minimum depth of 10mm up to the square edge.

Clean the surface and remove any dust, unsound or contaminated material, plaster, oil, paint, grease, corrosion deposits or algae. Where breaking out is not required, roughen the surface and remove any laitance by light scabbling or abrasive-blasting.

Oil and grease deposits should be removed by steam cleaning, detergent scrubbing or the use of a proprietary degreaser. The effectiveness of decontamination should then be assessed by a pull-off test.

Expose fully any corroded steel in the repair area and remove all loose scale and corrosion deposits. Steel should be cleaned to a bright condition paying particular attention to the back of exposed steel bars. Abrasive blasting, hydrodem equipment, powered mechanical scraping or other suitable means is recommended for this process.

Where corrosion has occurred due to the presence of chlorides, the steel should be high-pressure washed with clean water immediately after abrasive-blasting to remove corrosion products from pits and imperfections within its surface.

Refer to HSE information sheet CIS36 regarding control of

exposure to construction dust, available at

Reinforcing steel priming

Apply one full coat of Nitoprime Zincrich Plus and allow to dry before continuing. If any doubt exists about having achieved an unbroken coating, a second application should be made and, again, allowed to dry before continuing.

Concrete Priming

The concrete substrate should be saturated surface dry immediately before the application of the primer i.e. it should be thoroughly saturated with clean water and any residual surface water removed prior to applying Renderoc Primer.

Under severe drying conditions repeated soaking may be necessary to ensure the substrate is still saturated at the time of application of the primer.

Add 3 parts by volume of Renderoc Primer Part A to 1 part by volume Renderoc Primer Part B (4 to 1 by weight) in a clean mixing vessel and mix with a spatula or slow speed drill and paddle until a homogeneous slurry is produced.

Scrub Renderoc Primer slurry into the surface.

Renderoc HB30 can be applied immediately to the primed surface. If the primer dries apply another coat of primer before continuing.

Open bags of Renderoc Primer Part A should be sealed and stored in a dry area. Use within 14 days.

In exceptional circumstances, e.g. where a substrate/repair barrier is required or where the substrate is water immersed or likely to remain permanently damp, Nitobond EP bonding aid should be used. Contact the local Fosroc office for further information.


Care should be taken to ensure that Renderoc HB30 is thoroughly mixed. A forced-action mixer is essential. Mixing in a suitably sized drum using an approved Renderoc Mixing Paddle (MR4) with a slow speed (400/500 rpm) heavy-duty drill is acceptable for the occasional one-bag mix.

Free-fall mixers must not be used. Mixing of part bags should never be attempted.

For normal applications, place 3.8 to 4.2 litres of drinking quality water into the mixer.

With the machine in operation, add one full bag of Renderoc HB30 and mix for a minimum of 3 minutes and a maximum of 5 minutes, until fully homogeneous.

The consistency may be adjusted by the addition of small amounts of water up to the maximum total water content of 4.2 litres.

Note that the powder must always be added to the water.

Mixing warning

As with other ‘one pack’ repair mortars, Renderoc HB30 may exhibit satisfactory handling characteristics even though inadequately mixed. This will result in a significantly lower level of performance or possible failure. It is therefore essential that mixing instructions are strictly adhered to with a particular emphasis on the quantity of water used and the time of the mixing operation.


Exposed steel reinforcing bars should be firmly secured to prevent movement during application. Apply the mixed Renderoc HB30 by gloved hand or trowel, thoroughly compacting onto the primed substrate and around exposed reinforcement.

If sagging or slumping occurs the Renderoc HB30 should be completely removed and reapplied at a reduced thickness to a correctly primed substrate.


Additional build-up can be achieved by the application of multiple layers. The surface of the intermediate layers should be comb scratch-keyed and cured with Nitobond AR. Repriming with Renderoc Primer and a further application of Renderoc HB30 may proceed as soon as this layer has set.

Spray application

Renderoc HB30 can be quickly and efficiently applied by the wet spray technique. In circumstances where large areas of repair are required, the rapid placement and higher build attainable by this method offer economic advantages over hand-trowelling.

The resultant repair also offers a generally more dense compound with enhanced mortar/substrate bond characteristics.


Renderoc HB30 is finished by striking off with a straight edge and closing with a steel float. Wooden or plastic floats, or damp sponges, may be used to achieve the desired surface texture.

The completed surface should not be overworked. After spray application, the mortar may need to be cut back to the required profile using a steel float and then finished with damp sponges as described above.

Low temperature working

In cold conditions down to 3°C, the use of warm mixing water (up to 30°C) is advisable to accelerate strength development. Normal precautions for winter working with cementitious materials should then be adopted.

The material should not be applied when the substrate and/or air temperature is 3°C and falling. At 3°C static temperature or at 3°C and rising, the application may proceed.

High temperature working

At ambient temperatures above 35°C, the material should be stored in the shade and cool water used for mixing.


Renderoc HB30 is a cement-based repair mortar. In common with all cementitious materials, it must be cured immediately after finishing in accordance with good concrete practice.

The use of Nitobond AR sprayed onto the surface of the finished mortar in a continuous film, is recommended. A low-pressure atomising sprayer is essential for applying the Nitobond AR. Any excessive run-off on verticals or drips on soffits should be removed by brush before they harden.

Large areas should be cured as trowelling progress (0.5 m2 at a time) without waiting for completion of the entire area.

In fast drying conditions, supplementary curing with polythene sheeting taped down at the edges must be used. In cold conditions, the finished repair must be protected from freezing.

Overcoating with protective decorative finishes

Renderoc HB30 is extremely durable and will provide long-term protection to the embedded steel reinforcement within the repaired locations.

The surrounding parts of the structure will benefit from the application of a barrier/decorative coating to limit the advance of chlorides and carbon dioxide, bringing them to the same protective standard as the repair itself.

Fosroc recommends the use of the Dekguard range of protective, anti-carbonation coatings. These products provide a decorative and uniform appearance as well as protecting areas of the structure which might otherwise be at risk from the environment.

Dekguard products may be applied over the repair area without prior removal of the Nitobond AR curing membrane. Other curing membranes must be removed prior to the application of Dekguard products.


Renderoc HB30 and Renderoc Primer should be removed from tools, equipment and mixers with clean water immediately after use. Cured material can only be removed mechanically.

Clean tools used with Nitoprime Zincrich Plus and Nitobond EP before material cures, using Fosroc Solvent 102.
