Building Mix

This is a proven quality mortar with a low carbon footprint for general brick and block laying.

How to Use

Preparation

Bricks and blocks should be wet before you start the job. If too dry, the bricks will absorb the moisture from the mixture, weakening its strength in the process.

Mixing

Mix in a wheelbarrow, on a plastic sheet or on a pre-wet surface using clean, drinkable water wherever possible.

  • Empty contents of cement bag and mix thoroughly with sand and stone
  • Gradually add water and mix to an even, paste consistency. Use a maximum of 7 to 8 litres of water. Too much water will result in a weaker mortar

Do not try to rework by mixing in additional water when semi-dry.

Curing

To take proper care of your project, prevent moisture by keeping it damp for 3 to 7 days. Gently spray with water and cover with plastic sheeting, hessian or damp sand.
