Rupco AAC MORTAR Mortar is a superior water-resistant cement-based mortar specially formulated for joining blocks. This mortar is specially designed and manufactured under stringent quality controls to give superior adhesive strength, higher durability and a strong bond between the blocks. This unique combination enables this mortar to be thinner, compact and versatile. It also ensures higher bond strength and durability at only 3 mm thickness compare to the conventional mortar at 12-15 mm replacing the conventional cement and sand mix mortar completely.
The surface area where Rupco Block Jointing Mortar needs to be applied should be sound, thoroughly clean and free from dust, grease, oil and any loose material. The masonry surface should be pre-wetted before applying Rupco Block Jointing Mortar. Line out on the concrete slab should be done by using conventional cement mortar to get the desired line level.
How to Apply?
Take the required quantity of water in a clean bucket, add Rupco Block Jointing Mortar as recommended. Stir continuously for 5 -10 minutes by using an electric mixer or by hand to obtain a homogeneous lump-free mix. Allow the resultant wet mortar to stand for about 5 minutes for the additives to dissolve. Re-mix again for about 2 minutes. The mixture is now ready. Use the mix within 60 minutes. For best results, it is advisable to use a notched trowel of 3 to 4 mm to have better contact and bonding.
