Use the Coarse blend (Type G) as a mortar to repoint brick and stone, and use the Fine blend (Type F) as a plaster finish on old and new buildings alike. Use indoors or outdoors. An "Old World" Lime finish.
Ecologic Mortar comes as a bagged dry mix. Add water and mix with water using a high torque industrial electric drill and a rigid paddle attachment in five-gallon pail or using a mason's paddle-style mortar mixer.
Mixes differ according to application
Type F stands for "fine sands" for the application of butter joint repointing, fine jointed Ashlar stonework and for a smooth plaster finish. Base coat with the coarser "G" mix.
Type G stands for "coarse granules" for most all other applications. The granules in Type G are coarse in comparison to the fine sands in a Type F mortar, but the coarse granules are likened to regular mason's sand that meets ASTM C-144 standards for sharp, well-graded sand. The coarse grains are not as coarse as typical concrete sand.
All stock Ecologic Mortars are made with NHL 3.5 and sand blend.
