Sand & Cement is a proportioned mix of selected graded sand and cement binders designed for the builder and home handy person. This product can be used for all kinds of patching, bedding and landscaping work.
General purpose landscaping applications such as:
• Bush rock jointing.
• Bedding for some paving and tiles.
• General bricklaying (for superior performance, we recommend Brickies Mortar for this application).
• Repairing damaged concretes and mortars.
• Can also be used a general render over bricks and blocks (for a superior result, we recommend our Uni-Render for this application).
Before applying to any surface, remove any loose or flaky material and moisten with clean water.
Empty portion required into a wheel barrow or other non porous surface (plastic bucket is good). Add water gradually and mix thoroughly to achieve a workable mix. Do not over water. The less water the stronger the mortar.
For improved bonding of mortar mixes, Boral recommends the addition of a suitable bonding agent such as our own Cemstik. This will help ensure a good bond to existing concrete and other surfaces and generally enhance the properties of the mix for any application.
Apply the mixed Blue Circle® Sand & Cement with a suitable trowel or clean sponge depending on the application.
Allow to set to the touch before finishing with a clean sponge, wooden float or steel trowel.
One 20kg bag will cover an area of 1.1m squared to depth of approximately 10mm.
