Platinum Fillet Seal Mortar stands at the forefront of waterproofing technology, meticulously engineered to offer a comprehensive solution to the challenges posed by structural waterproofing, especially at vulnerable junction points. This cement-based, rapid-setting powder is designed for immediate application, offering a non-shrink, hydraulic setting that ensures durability and integrity in waterproofing applications.
The product's formulation is a testament to innovation, combining specially selected quartz with high-quality Portland cement and a proprietary mix of both organic and inorganic chemicals. This blend is not merely for adhesion; it's a calculated approach to ensure the mortar expands upon application, filling gaps and creating a watertight barrier that addresses the inherent weaknesses in blockwork and masonry at junctions.
Application of Platinum Fillet Seal Mortar is a straightforward process requiring a trowel, making it accessible for both professionals and those with a competent DIY skill set. Its role in strengthening weak points within the waterproofing of junctions is unparalleled, primarily when used as part of the tanking system alongside Platinum Tanking Slurry.
One of the mortar's standout features is its dynamic response to water and free lime in the substrate. It activates a sealing process through a reaction that forms and develops a continuous barrier of insoluble crystals. These crystals penetrate deep into concrete pores, blocking capillaries and sealing against water ingress, while still allowing the transmission of air and water vapour. This means the structure remains 'breathable', preventing moisture buildup within.
The crystalline barrier remains dormant, ready to reactivate in the presence of water, ensuring long-term protection. The effectiveness of the waterproofing properties continues to strengthen, reaching its peak within 5 to 7 days after application, depending on the concrete's density and surface absorption.

Platinum Fillet Seal Mortar is designed for application on concrete, brick, and structural blockwork. Before application, it is imperative to address any active water leaks with Platinum Aqua Stop Fast Set Plugging Mortar. This ensures a dry surface that enhances the mortar's adhesion and effectiveness.
The preparation stage is critical for ensuring the substrate is ready for the application of Platinum Fillet Seal Mortar.
This involves cleaning the area to be repaired or levelled, removing unsound materials, and ensuring the surface is free from dust, grease, oil, and any other contaminants that might affect the mortar's adhesion.
For brickwork and blockwork, remove all loose pointing and contaminants. When dealing with concrete, especially if exposed steel is present, apply two coats of a suitable corrosion inhibitor.
The concrete's strength must be a minimum of 20 N/mm², ensuring a solid base for the application.
Dampen all prepared substrates with clean water to ensure a receptive surface for the mortar. For highly porous surfaces, applying one coat of Platinum SBR Bonding Agent diluted 1:1 with water is recommended. This primer enhances the mortar's adhesion and should be allowed to dry for approximately 1 to 2 hours before proceeding with the application of Platinum Fillet Seal Mortar.
To properly address floor/wall junctions, chase out the floor to a depth and width of 25mm from the wall and into the floor, extending into the wall if possible.
Clean the chased area to remove any dust or debris. While the area is still damp, fill the chase with Platinum Fillet Seal Mortar.
The mixing ratio is critical: Use 4L of water per 25Kg of mortar, adding water to the mixing vessel before the mortar to ensure a consistent mix.
The setting time is similar to that of a sand/cement mortar, typically overnight. Press the mortar fully into the chase and, while it is still malleable, form a "bottle" cove for a smooth transition between surfaces.
This method should also be applied to all vertical internal angles and wall/ceiling junctions to ensure comprehensive coverage and waterproofing.
The coverage rate of Platinum Fillet Seal Mortar is approximately 15-20 linear metres per 25kg, although this can vary based on site conditions and specific requirements.
This rate is essential for planning the quantity of mortar needed for a project, ensuring efficient use of materials.
