MasterEmaco N 5200 is a universal, single component, polymer modified, fast setting, repair, reprofiling and levelling mortar that meets the requirements of European Norm EN 1504-3 class R2.

It is a ready to use material that contains special cements, well graded sands, hydraulic binders, carefully selected polymers and fibres (polyacrylonitryl) to reduce shrinkage, plus improve the physical and application properties. Applied nanotechnology has been used to significantly reduce shrinkage.

When mixed with water, it forms a highly thixotropic mortar that can easily be hand or trowel applied in thicknesses from 3–100 mm in one layer.

Features and benefits:

  • Formulated with new nanotechnology to minimize shrinkage and crack tendency.
  • Superb application properties.
  • No slump mortar.
  • Excellent high build capacity.
  • Can be used as a fairing coat and patch repair mortar.
  • Easy to create profiles and corners without formwork.
  • Fast setting: can be over-coated in only four hours.
  • Low modulus of elasticity.
  • Low chromate (Cr[VI] < 2 ppm).
  • Does not contain chlorides and is effectively self-curing.
  • CE marked.


  • Can be applied inside and outside, on horizontal, vertical and overhead surfaces, in dry and wet environments.
  • Used for the non-structural repair of concrete elements such as balcony edges, facades, parapet walls, precast panels, stair nosings and beam edges.
