Quality

The mix is a kiln dried, pre-blended, factory-produced 1:6 cement:sand mortar, complying with the requirements of BS EN 998-2.

Mixing Instructions

To overcome any potential segregation that has occurred during transit, thoroughly mix the maxi bag contents before use.

The contents of the bag can be mechanically mixed in a free fall mixer for 3-4 minutes or hand mixed by pouring contents onto a clean, flat surface and slowly adding clean water in increments and mixing continuously until the desired workability is achieved.

In the case of high absorbency masonry units and/or high ambient temperatures, rapid moisture loss from the mortar should be prevented by pre-wetting the masonry units.

For optimum results, approximately 2.0 to 2.4 litres of clean water should be used per bag and mortar should be used within 60 minutes of water addition.

Refrain from excessive water addition, as this will weaken the mix, delay setting times and adversely affect durability.

There is no need to add further additives or admixtures to the material on site as all required plasticizers/workability aids are already incorporated into the mix.

After Laying

The finished mortar should be protected against the effects of frost and rain by covering with plastic sheeting or hessian. To prevent rapid drying, in excessively dry or windy conditions, the mortar should be similarly protected.

Coverage

Each maxi bag of Remix General Purpose Masonry Mortar will yield approximately 12 litres of fresh mortar, sufficient to lay approximately 20 standard house bricks or 12 100mm blocks laid with a uniform 10mm joint.
