Readymix Lime:Sand Mortar
Description

Readymix traditional lime:sand mortar is convenient and simple to use, extremely effective and can be stored indefinitely. Lime is the key constituent of this mortar and is renowned for high efficiency, enhanced compressive and flexural strength, and outstanding performance.

Readymix lime:sand mortar promotes greater durability of the bond and joint.

The Readymix lime:sand mortar range offers the advantages of autogenous self-healing. Lime reacts with rainwater and heals hairline cracks in mortar, thus reducing rain penetration and improving the thermal properties of the building.

  • Designation 2: 1:4–4½ cement to premixed lime & sand mix (at 1:9 lime to sand proportions) to produce mix proportions of 1:½:4 to 4½.
  • Designation 3: 1:5–6 cement to premixed lime & sand mix (at 1:6 lime to sand proportions) to produce mix proportions of 1:1:5 to 6.
