Plastering    

  • Allow 3-4 weeks after brick laying before plastering.    
  • Apply the 2nd hand at least one day after the 1st hand application.    
  • Apply the plaster on the prepared surface by spraying it or manually with a plastering trowel at a thickness between 10 and 30 mm in one layer. If more thickness is required, the application should be done in two layers. The 1st layer should be roughened then cured.    
  • Protect the newly applied plaster from sunshine and wind. The new plaster has to be cured with water for at least three days by spraying 3 to 4 times daily.  

Brick or block laying    

  • Bricks or blocks must be free of dust, at a temperature of +15 ºC - +25 ºC.    
  • PITTAKIS CEM is similar in application to conventional mortars.    
  • Joints between bricks should not exceed 10mm.  

Substrates Preparation    

  • The substrate must be solid, free of dust, loose parts and oils.   
  • To avoid immediate absorption of mix water by the substrate and for better adhesion saturate the surface to provide a saturated surface dry condition.  

Preparing the mix   

  • Pour the material into clean water and mix (mix in a concrete machine for big quantities or with a low speed electric mixer for small quantities) until a homogeneous lump free mix is obtained.   
  • Allow mixture settle for 5 minutes prior the application. Attention! Additional water will make your mixture sloppy and may cause negative results on final strength.    
  • Use the mixture when is still fresh. Do not leave the mix unmixed for a long time.    
  • Do not mix with water or latex additive when the mixture starts to set in the bucket. In such case the mix should be dropped.
