    Properties

    • Swelling capable
    • Grain size: < 0.5 mm
    • Compressive strength: > 2.5 N/mm² (M2.5)
    • This natural cement has been produced to the same formulation for more than 150 years and is also called Roman cement. It is based on a lime-marl from the Cretaceous period traditionally fired in a shaft kiln at low temperature.
    • Preparation
      • Substrate requirements

        The mould must be clean and free of dust.

    • Application
      • Curtain coating
      • Application temperature: min. 5 °C max. 30 °C
      • Allow the mortar to flow slowly and evenly into the mould.

        Depending on its shape and size, the stucco element can be de-moulded and finished after approx. 3 hours.

    • Application instructions
      • Once it has hardened, mortar must not be made workable again by adding either water or more wet mortar.

        Wet elements should be protected from frost and rain for at least 4 days to allow them to set quickly.

        Hairline/shrinkage cracks are safe and are not cause for complaint as they do not impair the properties of the mortar.

        If the elements are particularly long, they must be reinforced in order to prevent breakage.

    • Working tools / cleaning
      • Curtain coating
      • Mixing tool, smoothing trowel, pointer, universal funnel

      • Clean tools and equipment with water before the mortar sets.

    • Storage / shelf life
      • Protect form moisture
      • Shelf-life 6 months
      • Dry, in unopened containers, 6 months.

    • Usage
      • 1.2 kg / l void
      • Approx. 1.2 kg/l void
