Excellent workability. Easy to clean. Especially suitable for fixing and grouting glass blocks in interior and exterior situations.
Fixing and grouting glass blocks in large windows and brick partitions in indoors and outdoors.
BEYEM BLOCK is suitable for:
- Glass blocks.
- Other cement based substrates (on which to place glass).
Substrates must be clean, compact and free of substances that reduce adhesion such as dust, oil, grease and with no loose material. Uneven areas must be corrected. Substrates must be free from any rising damp and have already completed the curing period of hygrometric shrinkage. Dampen substrates with water to cool down if they should be too warm, in case of wind or over absorbent substrates and wait until the thin layer of water disappears. It is a good practice curing with a fine spray of clean water 24 h after application. Do not use on gypsum based plasters or paint.
Mix manually of mechanically BEYEM BLOCK with 6,0-7,0 l per bag of clean water until a homogeneous, creamy and lump-free paste is obtained. Let the mix stand for 5 minutes before application. Build the blockwork using a trowel as with ordinary brickwork. Use joint-gap spacers (mandatory). Reinforce the joints between blocks with 4 or 6 mm diameter galvanised steel rods (if the block joint is up to 10 mm), which do not must touch the blocks. For block joints up to 16mm, use mm diameter galvanised steel rods. Spread the mixed product with a trowel onto the substrate. Place the block over the fresh mortar layer and press to ensure adhesion. Once the blocks have been set and grouted (1-2 hours), clean them with a slightly wet sponge. Wait 24 hours to do the final cleaning using a scrubber or cloth.
