Ronabond HB40 Ultra Rapid – Rapid setting mortar for high build repairs

Ronabond HB40 Ultra Rapid – Rapid setting mortar for high build repairs on vertical and overhead surfaces. RonaBond HB40 Ultra Rapid mortar is used for repairing concrete on vertical and overhead surfaces where ease of application is as important as strength. RonaBond HB40 Ultra Rapid can be applied in relatively thick section to walls and soffits and, depending on the nature of the repair, in layers up to 75mm depending on size and orientation. RonaBond HB40 Ultra Rapid is suitable for use at lower temperatures, minimum 20C. Multiple layers may be applied in a single day depending on temperature.


RonaBond HB40 Ultra Rapid can be used in most weather conditions and in a wide temperature range, from +2°C to 25°C and above. At high ambient and material temperature the working time of the mix will be reduced; it will be increased at lower temperatures.

Preparation of concrete and steel:

All concrete identified for removal must be broken out to ensure that repair materials are applied to a sound and stable substrate and that the minimum mortar thickness can be applied throughout. Repair edges must be saw cut at an angle of 90 degrees to the plane of the concrete, to avoid feather edging. Reinforcing steel in the repair area must be exposed to its full circumference, until uncorroded steel is visible, to a sufficient depth for adequate cleaning of the bar, Loose rust and scale must be removed. Cover to reinforcement must be ≥15mm to ensure adequate protection of steel and prevent reflective cracking. Corroded steel must be replaced where necessary. All removal of concrete and steel must be carried out in accordance with the specification. When repairing chloride contaminated concrete the method used to prepare and prime surfaces may differ and the Ronacrete Technical Department should be consulted. All surfaces must be cleaned to remove loose dust, debris and surface contamination which may prevent adhesion of the repair mortar to concrete and steel. Concrete must be clean and prepared with a scabbler or needle gun.

Wetting and priming:

Following preparation of concrete and steel, thoroughly wet all concrete surfaces to be repaired with clean water to satisfy concrete porosity. Remove free water immediately before priming. Brush apply Ronacrete Rapid Primer to the steel and allow to become tacky, not dry. When the priming coat on steel is tacky, brush a single coat of the same primer on to the damp concrete and a second coat on to the steel. Ensure that the first priming coat applied to the steel is not removed during the application of the second coat, or scatter kilndried sand into the wet first coat and apply the second coat to the dry and keyed first coat.


RonaBond HB40 Ultra Rapid must be mixed mechanically in a forced action mixer (e.g. Creteangle pan mixer) or using a high power slow speed drill (typically 500 rpm) with a paddle attachment, MR 4 or similar (do not use a free fall mixer).  Pour the dry powder into a mixing vessel containing ≥ 3 litres (but not more than 3.2 litres) of clean water. Mix for approximately 3 minutes to produce an even consistency. Note that the mix will stiffen during transit to the repair position. Use complete packs to ensure consistency, uniform dispersion of pack contents and accuracy of powder:water ratio. To avoid a false set in warm working conditions store materials in the shade and use cool water.


The mortar must be applied to the wet or tacky primer before the primer dries. If the primer dries it must be thoroughly scarified and reapplied. Apply the mortar to reform the original profile of the concrete and cover reinforcing steel. Ensure that the mortar is fully compacted, paying particular attention to avoidance of voids around reinforcement. Layer thickness will vary according to the shape and size of the repair, the texture of the substrate and application technique. Application techniques include hand packing the mortar on to the surface. When multiple layer application is required, each intermediate layer must be combed and allowed to harden before application of Ronacrete Rapid Primer and a further layer of mortar. The repair must be finished with a steel or wood float, and may be dry sponge finished if required. If applying a protective or decorative coating such a RonaBond Crack Bridging Anti Carbonation Coating WB, RonaBond AntiCarbonation Coating WB or RonaBond Masonry Paint WB, leaving the final layer with a sponge finish will aid adhesion.

5* - Couldn't fault the company.


Very helpful staff with good product knowledge. Problem with the courier company, order was only part delivered (not Screed Giant's fault). Screed Giant's staff dispatched missing products overnight to me. This was necessary as we had trades booked in to start work and needed materials on site. All done extremely efficiently, will certainly use again. Many thanks.

JEV Tiling

I ordered some specialist product from the website, however conscious that I was under a tight deadline I rang customer service at Screed Giant and was greeted by a very friendly, helpful lady called Georgia who was able to expedite my order which duly arrived early the next day. I would thus have no hesitation in recommending Screed Giant.


5* - Incredibly helpful I spoke with Georgia regarding my order. She was very helpful and went out of her way to meet my requirements. I would definitely use them again.

Iron Hill Construction

Thanks Screed Giant. Good service and assistance through the order. Appreciated.

Richard McL

5* - "Initially I need advice on what products I needed for a Gyvlon floor which was very clearly explained to me. When I came to place the order I struggled with the order online but Ellie was able to find the order on her system and sort the payment out for me straight away, she is also keeping me updated with delivery."

Amos Contracting Ltd

5* - Helpful throughout and delivery prompt.

Individual Floor Fitting

5* - Upon making my call to Screed Giant I was greeted by Ellie, she was happy to spend some time listening to what my requirements were before making some knowledgeable suggestions and a recommendation. I was pleasantly surprised that although an additional product was discussed she used her knowledge to advise against spending more money on items that offered no benefit for my application. I don’t feel sold too and I feel well advised. Fast delivery was required to avoid disrupting contractors so Ellie herself collected my products from the warehouse and agreed to pass it to the couriers to ensure it could be posted for a next day delivery with updates via my phone. She honoured her promise to email me with the invoice and additional paperwork I requested and am pleased to say both the service and the product knowledge has been superior to other companies I have dealt with. Many thanks Screed Giant and Ellie.

WLS Investment Partnership

5* - Michaela was a consummate professional from beginning to end, helped us with a Saturday delivery, against all odds, and we have re-ordered due to helpfulness and attitude of Michaela. She is awesome!

AJK Woodflooring

Just to say I found the service and attention to detail 1st class. I spoke with one of your colleagues this morning over delivery of the order and she was both polite and helpful, it is really nice to know there are companies who provide such a 5* service. I will have no hesitation in recommending you to others!
