Well-bonded Thin Veneer and Manufactured Stone
Masonry, veneer, or stone must be firmly bonded to a sound substrate, and setting material must be cured a minimum 24 – 48 hours before finishing, unless rapid setting adhesives are used. See the corresponding data for the bonding materials used in your application. Ensure that the mortar joints are free of loose debris, contaminants and excess mortar. Tile with high absorption, surface porosity or rough-textured surfaces and certain types of porcelain may require sealing prior to mortar placement to prevent staining. Applying one coat of Custom® TVIS™ Penetrating Sealer prior to Pointing Mortar to assist with cleanup of cement and color pigment on surface of manufactured stone or thin veneer. Always test sealer first in an inconspicuous area for compatibility with stone. Contact Custom® Building Products Technical Services if pre-sealing or temporary protection of the veneer is required.
This product contains Portland cement and free silica. Avoid eye contact or prolonged contact with skin. Wash thoroughly after handling. If eye contact occurs, flush with water for 15 minutes and consult a physician. Do not breathe dust; wear a NIOSH approved respirator.
Mix 4 quarts (3.78 L) clean water to 50 lbs (22.68 kg) bag of mortar. When used in a horizontal application such as panel work; the water may be increased by up to 15% or 4.5 quarts (3.78 L).
Mix with a trowel or low speed mixer (less than 300 rpm) to achieve a smooth, lump-free consistency. Let the mixture stand (slake) for 5-10 minutes, and then remix and use. Periodically remix to keep the mixture workable, but do not add water, which can weaken the joint, cause color variation and possible cause shrinkage, cracks and pinholes. Discard mortar when it becomes too stiff to work.
USE CHEMICAL-RESISTANT GLOVES, such as nitrile, when handling product.
Lightly dampen absorptive, highly-porous veneer with clean, cool water, but leave no standing water in the joints. For mortar or grout bag application, bag the mortar into the joint. Once the mortar has become stiff in the joint, using a striking or joint tool, strike the mortar joints to provide the desired finish. Remove excess mortar using a masonry brush or sponge. Do not over wash the mortar joint. Holding a rubber float at a 45© angle, completely fill the joints.
For float applications:
Holding the edge of the float at a 45© angle to spread the mortar uniformly into the joints and then at a 90© angle, remove excess grout. Do not spread more mortar than can be cleaned within 30 minutes of the mortar firming and use as little water as possible for mortar cleanup. Using a striking or joint tool, strike the mortar joints to provide the desired finish. Remove excess mortar using a masonry brush or sponge. Do not over wash the mortar joint.
Curing time is affected by ambient and surface temperatures and humidity.
Clean with water before the material dries.
Properly installed product requires no special maintenance.
