BLOCKS JOINTING MORTARS a versatile thin jointing material for laying AAC blocks,
fly ash bricks, concrete blocks etc. The product is specially designed to provide
higher bonding as a result of higher tensile adhesion strength.
SILICO FIX BLOCKS JOINTING MORTARS is pre-mixed, easy to
apply high quality mortar comprising of cement, graded sand and admixtures. This
mortar replaces conventional jointing mortar of 12-18 mm thickness with highly versatile
3 mm hickness.
Appearance : Grey Powder
Water Required : 25 to 30%
Pot Life : 1.5 - 2 hrs at 27 degree centigrade
Tensile Adhesive Strength : 0.34 MPa (as per ASTM-C1660)
Shelf life: 12 months
Coverage : 180 - 200 sq. ft. (for 4" thick blocks). One bag of 40 Kgs should ideally
be sufficient for 1 cubic meter of AAC Blocks
Features and Benefits
» Thin jointing material with very high adhesion strength
» Pre-mixed and ready-to-use. Only water is to be mixed at site
» Economical. Eliminates lengthy and cumbersome processes of site mixing, thus transport
and storage of all individual materials is avoided
» Ease of mix and much faster application
» Thin layer application results in structure being compact
» No water curing is required after application
» Minimizes the undulation of the surface
» Being a thin layer, chances of water percolation is negligible
» Being premixed, it saves considerable time and labour
» Eco-friendly product
» Raw materials are processed, reducing the chances of efflorescence
» Laying and jointing of fly ash bricks, cement blocks, hollow blocks, AAC blocks
» Jointing of pre-stressed concrete slabs, panels.
» Parapet walls
» Jointing of cement window and door frames.
» Garden and boundary walls.
» The base surface should be properly cured prior to application of Block Joining
» The surface must be cleaned thoroughly, with no loose particles or dust.
» The surface must be structurally sound, clean and free from dirt, oil, grease,
efflorescence and any other contaminant which could impair the natural bond.
» Surface defects such as cracks, holes or voids should be repaired prior to application.
» It is very important that Block Joining Mortar is mixed with water properly and
thoroughly before use. It is advisable to use a mechanical stirrer for uniform and
thorough mixing to save time, labour and for maximum workability.
» Take a clean vessel/bucket, add water to it and put required quantity of Block
Joining Mortar in it.
» Mixing Ratio - Clean potable water (approximately 25%-30%) of the weight of the
powder is required to be mixed depending upon the thickness of the product to be
applied. Water is to be incrementally added in stages to get a smooth, uniform and
workable mix. Allow ample of time for initial mixing.
» Ensure that no powder is left unmixed at the bottom of the vessel. Block Joining
Mortar is now ready for application.
» Layout the wall in which BLOCKS is to be used and mark openings like door, windows,
any architectural appurtenances etc.
» Put a thin layer of Block Joining Mortar in the thickness of 3 mm on the clean
and leveled surface using proper trowel on which the block work is to be carried
» Place the block on the laid Block Joining Mortar in proper line and level.
» After placing the first block apply the Block Joining Mortar of same thickness
on both the sides of the block continuously keeping a check on the line and level.
» Clean the excess material, if any immediately. Continue the procedure for the
entire block work.
» Under normal conditions the coverage of Block Joining Mortar is approx. 180-200
sq. ft with average thickness of 3mm for a bag of 40 kgs. The coverage area however
will depend upon the quality of the substrate and thickness of the material used.
» For best results, proper tools for mixing and application is advised which will
result in higher coverage, savings in time and manpower.
Precautions during usage:
» Though it contains non-toxic materials but still care should be taken to avoid
dust inhalation while mixing and handling. In case of contact with eyes or mouth,
wash with plenty of clean water.
» Keep it in a safe dry place which is out of reach of children.
» Persons who are allergic to cement should take proper precautions before use.
» Block Joining Mortar is available in 40kgs PP laminated bags.
