REQUIREMENTWorkability and “fattiness” in cement mortar, without use of lime.
PRODUCT TO USE:SYNLIME
HOW TO SPECIFY:
All mortar shall be (state sand/cement proportion), with Cementaid SYNLIME at the rate of 65 to 125ml per 20kg bag of cement. (Recommended mortar 5:1 or 6:1). Lime water or hydrated lime shall not be used.
SYNLIME gives a plastic, workable mix, which remains soft and useable for several hours in the batch, but sets quickly as soon as laid in brickwork. Ultimate strength is greater than for lime/cement mortar. The yield per bag of cement is approximately the same as for a lime/cement mortar, due to the bulking effect of air-entrainment.
All mortar and cement render.
