DESCRIPTION

CEMIX MORTARFLEX Plus is a highly concentrated powder that will plasticise, increase open time, retain water, help prevent efflorescence, shrinking and cracking, reduce water absorption and increase bond and strength. CEMIX MORTARFLEX Plus will improve workability, giving a fattier mix and without the necessity of rewetting. Can be used with all coloured mortar including black oxide. Low cost per mix. Do not use with lime. If lime is required in mix, use CEMIX CEMPLUS Plasticisers

MIXING

CEMIX MORTARFLEX Plus is ideally added to the bowl during mixing. Shake container thoroughly before use. Use 3 level measuring caps (12gm per cap) per 40kg bag of cement (measuring cap provided in container). Amount of plasticiser required may vary with the type of sand used, however it is important not to overdose or over mix. As MORTAFLEX PLUS acts as a water reducer you may require less water to achieve a workable mix. DO NOT over mix, a maximum of 3 minutes is suggested for most sands. As a guide the following mortar formula is provided as a starting point. Mix 6 – 7 parts by volume of good clean sand to 2 parts ordinary cement. Add CEMIX MORTARFLEX Plus as per instructions. Mix with clean water to desired consistency. Shake well before use.
