    • Preparation
      • Substrate requirements

        Clean, dust-free and capable of supporting a load.

      • Preparations

        Pre-wet the substrate so that it is slightly moist.

        Expose the grains close to the surface

        The substrate must have an average pull-off strength of at least 1.5 N/mm²

    • Application
      • Mortar cover / Filling knife / Trowel application / Jointing iron
      • Application temperature: min. 5 °C max. 30 °C
      • Application requirements

        Temperature of the material, air and substrate: from min. +5 °C to max. +30 °C

      • Fill and pack joints so that they are free of cavities.

        Remove any mortar that projects or is pushed out before it hardens and smooth down joints.

    • Application instructions
      • Once it has hardened, mortar must not be made workable again by adding either water or more wet mortar.

        Protect wet mortar surfaces against frost, rain and drying out too quickly for at least 4 days.

    • Working tools / cleaning
      • Mortar cover / Filling knife / Trowel application / Jointing iron
