Dubond's AAC Block Adhesive is a versatile thin jointing material for laying AAC blocks, fly ash bricks, concrete blocks etc. The product is specially designed to provide higher bonding as a result of higher tensile adhesion strength. AAC Block Adhesive is pre-mixed, easy to apply high quality mortar comprising of cement, graded sand and admixtures. AAC Block Adhesive replaces conventional jointing mortar of 12-18 mm thickness with highly versatile 3-5 mm thickness. Dubond's AAC Block Adhesive helps to speed up the build process and achieve the required insulation performance of AAC Blocks for the buildings. AAC Block Adhesive (Thin joint masonry) is a fast, clean, accurate system for construction using autoclaved aerated concrete blocks of close dimensional tolerance with 2mm - 3mm mortar joints.
Features and Benefits
Areas of Application
Surface Preparation The base surface should be properly cured prior to application of AAC Block Adhesive. The surface must be cleaned thoroughly, with no loose particles or dust. The surface must be structurally sound, clean and free from dirt, oil, grease, efflorescence and any other contaminant which could impair the natural bond. Surface defects such as cracks, holes or voids should be repaired prior to application. Mixing It is very important that AAC Block Adhesive is mixed with water properly and thoroughly before use. It is advisable to use a mechanical stirrer for uniform and thorough mixing to save time, labour and for maximum workability. Take a clean vessel/bucket, add water to it and put required quantity of AAC Block Adhesive in it. Mixing Ratio - Clean potable water (approximately 25%-30%) of the weight of the powder is required to be mixed depending upon the thickness of the product to be applied. Water is to be incrementally added in stages to get a smooth, uniform and workable mix. Allow ample of time for initial mixing. Ensure that no powder is left unmixed at the bottom of the vessel. The AAC Block Adhesive is now ready for pplication.
Layout the wall in which AAC Block Adhesive is to be used and mark openings like door, windows, any architectural appurtenances etc. Put a thin layer of AAC Block Adhesive in the thickness of 3 to 5mm on the clean and leveled surface using proper trowel on which the block work is to be carried out. Place the block on the laid AAC Block Adhesive in proper line and level. After placing the first block apply the AAC Block Adhesive of same thickness on both the sides of the block continuously keeping a check on the line and level. Clean the excess material, if any immediately. Continue the procedure for the entire block work.
Under normal conditions the coverage of Dubond's AAC Block Adhesive is approx. 11.15 sq. mtr. with average thickness of 3mm for a bag of 40 kgs. The coverage area however will depend upon the quality of the substrate and thickness of the material used. For best results, proper tools for mixing and application is advised which will result in higher coverage, savings in time and manpower.
Though it contains non-toxic materials but still care should be taken to avoid dust inhalation while mixing and handling. In case of contact with eyes or mouth, wash with plenty of clean water. Keep it in a safe dry place which is out of reach of children. Persons who are allergic to cement should take proper precautions before use..
