Coverage

Preparation
All surfaces should be clean and free of oil, gas, paint, grease, etc. before applying Mortar Mix.

Directions

Pour required amount of Mortar Mix into a clean wheelbarrow, mortar-box or similar container. Form a crater in the centre of the dry mix and pour in clear water while mixing with shovel or hoe. Water content should be about 1 quart for every 20 pounds of dry Mortar Mix. Mix to the consistency of a heavy batter.

For best results

Always use clean equipment, tools and water. A mechanical paddle-type mixer is recommended. Use a measurable container so the exact amounts are used for each batch. Avoid working in extreme heat. Use only when the temperature is 40ºF and rising. In cooler weather, use warm (not hot) water. Mix for 6 to 8 minutes. Thoroughly dampen the brick, block or repair area before applying the new Mortar to prevent a premature drying of the new material. Keep the new Mortar damp for at least 3 days by an occasional fine spraying of water.
