MONOKOTE® Accelerator is a custom blended form of alum (aluminum sulfate) powder designed to be mixed with water to form a syrup-like solution for injection into MONOKOTE® Fireproofing. The Injection process, developed by GCP Applied Technologies, injects the MONOKOTE® Accelerator into the flow of the MONOKOTE® Fireproofing slurry prior to the material being applied to the substrate. The reaction between the MONOKOTE® Accelerator and MONOKOTE® decreases the set time of the MONOKOTE® Fireproofing, allowing for more passes per day, and can increase the yield per bag.
MONOKOTE® Accelerator is approved for use with the following MONOKOTE® Products:
- MONOKOTE® MK-6/HY
- MONOKOTE® MK-6/HY Extended Set
- MONOKOTE® MK-6 GF
- MONOKOTE® MK-10 HB
- MONOKOTE® MK-10 HB Extended Set
- MONOKOTE® MK-1000 HB
- MONOKOTE® MK-1000 HB Extended Set
- MONOKOTE® Z-3306/G
- RETROGUARD® RG
The injection process can also be used to reduce the set time of MONOKOTE® Z-106/HY, MONOKOTE® Z-106/G, and MONOKOTE® MK-6s. Increased yield is not a benefit of the injection process with these products.
