Our superior quality pre-mixed Cladding Mortar is produced at our state-of-the- art production facility at Brownstown in Co. Kildare. The product is manufactured using dried sands, lime, cement and additives. All constituent materials comply with the requirements of the relevant and current Irish, British and European standards and specifically EN 998-2:2003.
Prior to application over unpainted and unsealed concrete and masonry surfaces, all loose material, dirt, dust, grease and efflorescence must be removed. Paint and sealers must be completely removed. Dampen the concrete, masonry or scratch coat substrate with a fine spray of water, but do not soak. Use a trowel to apply a layer of mortar on the substrate, and a thick base of Cladding Mortar on the back of the cladding stone. When installing large stone on a vertical surface, apply a thick ring of mortar around the back of each stone, leaving a void in the centre to create a vacuum as you press the stone into place; start at the bottom of the wall and brace each stone as you go up. Stone must be set within 20 minutes of applying mortar bed. Press the cladding stone firmly into the mortar bed in a twisting motion. Joints between stones should be a consistent 12 mm or less.
