DATA SHEET


DESCRIPTION

SHELF LIFE

Matures with age and as long as it is kept in a sealed container or bags there is no upper time limit.

AVAILABILITY

Ex stock.

COVERAGE
HEALTH & SAFETY

Alkali ph 13, skin, eyes and open sores must be protected.

OBSERVATIONS

The success of lime based mortars depends greatly on the tradesman being familiar with them and understanding that these mortars react very differently from modern cementitious mortars. Particular attention is needed towards, 1) the control of drying and hardening of the mortar, 2) the protection from frost and heat, 3) a basic understanding of where and when these mortars are suitable.
