SUBSTRATE PREPARATION

Dampen the clay bricks before laying them. Concrete blocks should be laid relatively dry.

APPLICATION

Empty contents into a wheelbarrow, mechanical mixer or onto a smooth non-porous surface. Add water gradually, mixing thoroughly until a smooth mix is achieved. Do not over mix. Under ideal conditions a bag of 20kg would require approx 3-3.3 litres of water. Damp the clay bricks before laying them. Concrete blocks should be laid relatively dry. Place a layer 15 – 20 mm of mortar between layers of bricks / blocks. The joint gaps are usually 10 – 15mm. Pointing is easier after the mortar has initially set.
