For best results
Always use clean equipment, tools and water. A mechanical paddle-type mixer is recommended. Use a measurable container so the exact amounts are used for each batch. Avoid working in extreme heat. Use only when the temperature is 40ºF and rising. In cooler weather, use warm (not hot) water. Mix for 6 to 8 minutes. Thoroughly dampen the brick, block or repair area before applying the new Mortar to prevent a premature drying of the new material. Keep the new Mortar damp for at least 3 days by an occasional fine spraying of water.
