The mortar is supplied in 2-components including epoxy pre-coated sand to which the hardener and measure amount of water is added and mixed to a fully homogeneous colour and consistence. The freshly mixed mortar is then easily and quickly applied using wet-slurry application techniques across the thoroughly pre-dampened surfaces, by rubber squeegee where it effectively self-compacts into the joints with the aid of more water from a hose. After an initial few minutes (around 15mins @ 20օ C) the surfaces are finished with a coconut brush and final rinse with clean water to remove any excess. As vdw 800 is applied to a pre-dampened surfaces it can be applied during wet weather, without waiting for the areas to dry after rainfall, although with vdw 800 the surface must be covered if more rain is expected to prevent resin run-off, or alternatively use the latest state-of-the-art vdw 850+ that can even be applied in the pouring rain e.g. when needs must to finish a job and/or get paid!
