Mortarex is a pre mixed mortar made from cement, graded sand and blended with polymers that make it a strong binding agent for aac blocks fly ash bricks and concrete blocks. The high strength and water retention properties of the mortar enhance the benefits of aac blocks even with layers as thin as 2-3mm. the conventional mortar is moist and causes aac blocks to absorb the moisture and create gaps in the masonry. This decereases the bond strength and completely nullifies the economical and ecological benefits of the aac blocks .on the other hand , mortarex ensures the building stays strong throughout. . mortarex replaces conventional cement and sand mix mortar.
Mortarex retain the water and prevents shrinkage cracks
Mortarex is the handy and convenient option to mortar as it is easy to apply and avoids wastage of material during the building process
The thin joints in mortarex prevent heat transfer through walls enhancing the existing benefits of the AAC blocks
The lower density and high volume enables a high coverage in a lesser amount of mortarex
Laying blocks requires 3 times less amount of mortarex than conventional mortar, saving money, time and energy at the same time
Mortarex comes ready to use and doesn't require blending on-site, saving time and money
Mortarex Powder = 0.22 to 0.24 by weight (8-8.5 Ltr l water per 40 kg bag).
Minimum Mixing Tool Mortarex must be mechanically mixed using a forced action mixer or in a clean container using a drill and mixing paddle ( below 500 rpm). A normal concrete mixer is not suitable. Mix thoroughly with clean water for a minimum of 3 minutes. Leave material to stand in container until the majority of bubbles have dispersed (minimum 5 minutes). Then remix the material for 15 seconds - the product is now ready for use.
If the substrate is very porous, if the temperature is high and/or the relative humidity low, it is advisable to dampen the surface.
Do not leave any standing water. Apply a thin uniform Layer of Mortarex 2 to 3 mm thick on the clean & leveled surface of masonry units using proper trowel Place the next course of masonry units on evenly jointing mortar bed in proper line & level.
Each masonry unit shall be properly bedded and set in position by gently pressing with handle of trowel. Inside unit of the masonry unit shall be applied with mortar before the next unit is laid & pressed against it especially in case of bricks.
Clean the excess material, if any immediately. Continue the procedure for the entire masonry work. Do not disturb the blocks /bricks setting for first 24 hours.
Clean all tools and application equipment with water immediately after use. Hardened / cured material can only be removed mechanically
