Mixing

Add full bags of Lime Green Ashlar Mortar into a drum mixer. Avoid creating excessive dust. Add approximately 5 litres of clean water. Pour the water in slowly as the product mixes, using just enough to achieve the correct workability. Mix for between 3 to 10 minutes. Lime Green Ashlar Mortar may be reworked up to 8hrs after adding water. Please contact us for further information.

Curing

Hydraulic lime starts to set once water is added and also hardens by reacting with carbon dioxide, which is a slow  process. Prevent rapid drying by protecting the mortar against the effects of drying winds, strong sunlight, rain and frost with mortar fleece or hessian. In warm weather gently mist spray with water after application and cover if required with damp hessian sheets. In cool weather cover fresh mortar with protective sheeting to help avoid frost damage. Do not allow fresh mortar to freeze after laying until it has dried and gained strength.
