Extra Strength Mortar Plasticiser 5LT


Extra strength mortar plasticiser is a chemical additive used in mortar mixes to improve their workability, durability, and performance. Here are some key features and details about extra strength mortar plasticiser:

Improved Workability: The plasticiser improves the workability of mortar mixes, making them easier to mix, spread, and shape. This allows for better control during application and ensures a smoother finish.

Increased Strength: The plasticiser enhances the strength and durability of mortar joints, resulting in a stronger and more resilient final structure. This is particularly beneficial for load-bearing applications such as bricklaying, blockwork, and rendering.

Reduced Water Content: By reducing the amount of water required in the mortar mix, the plasticiser helps maintain the optimal water-to-cement ratio. This prevents excessive water absorption by porous substrates and minimises the risk of shrinkage, cracking, and efflorescence.

Improved Adhesion: The plasticiser promotes better adhesion between mortar and substrate surfaces, ensuring a secure bond and preventing delamination or detachment over time. This is essential for long-lasting and structurally sound construction.

Compatibility: Extra strength mortar plasticiser is compatible with a wide range of cementitious materials, including ordinary Portland cement, rapid-set cement, and hydraulic lime. It can be used in various construction applications, such as bricklaying, blockwork, repointing, and rendering.

Easy Application: The plasticiser is typically added directly to the mortar mix during mixing, either as a liquid or powder. It disperses quickly and evenly throughout the mix, ensuring consistent performance and results.

Cost-Effective: Using extra strength mortar plasticiser can help reduce overall construction costs by improving work efficiency, minimising wastage, and extending the lifespan of mortar joints. It offers a cost-effective solution for achieving high-quality and durable masonry construction.

Overall, extra strength mortar plasticiser is a versatile and essential additive for enhancing the performance and durability of mortar mixes in various construction applications. Whether you’re a professional builder, contractor, or DIY enthusiast, incorporating plasticiser into your mortar mixes can help achieve superior results and ensure the long-term integrity of your projects.

Excellent top soil. The ladies in the office were first class and the delivery driver was so helpful and tipped the soil exactly where I wanted it even though it was very tight to get the tipper into my driveway a lot of shunting back and forth to turn it to get in position first class service highly recommended.

I was let down by several companies when overhauling my garden this year so when I came to arranging the new lawn I was very concerned in case I had another bad contractor but.. I have to say Andrew and the team did an amazing job of supplying and installing a huge amount of soil for my lawn and embankment as well as laying around 220 square meters of good quality lawn. On top of that he sorted my gravel out as well, amazing service, great friendly team, good fair prices and did exactly what he said he would do. Aftercare is also top notch. Thanks to all the team at South Wales Turf & Topsoil
