For best results, use only new masonry units.
All materials to be laid or surfaces to be coated must be clean and free of any dirt, oils, paints and other contaminants that will prevent proper bond.
Walls to be stuccoed should be dampened prior to application. When laying highly absorptive brick or block in hot, dry conditions, wet the units before laying to reduce the initial rate of suction and to promote better bond.
Place material in a clean suitable container (bucket, mixing box, wheelbarrow or power mixer). For each 15 pounds of dry material use approximately 1 quart of water. Add : of the mixing water and then blend in the dry ingredients. Mix until all liquid is absorbed. This will be a very stiff mix and will allow the addition of more liquid to the mix without overwatering. Add the balance of liquid required to achieve a smooth, lump free and fully wetted mix. Do not overwater. After initial mixing, allow the mix to rest and absorb all liquid for 2-3 minutes. Remix and apply.
Place bed of MORTAR MIX TYPE S on the area to receive masonry units. Butter the end of brick or block and place into bed joint. Tap units into place with trowel handle to ensure they are plumb and level. When stuccoing walls, apply material with a steel trowel and finish with a sponge, wood or metal float to achieve the desired effect.
MORTAR MIX TYPE S is self-curing in most applications. During periods of high heat and humidity, moist cure exterior walls by fogging with water 2-3 times a day for 3 days.
