Facing mortars are special mortars dedicated for the construction of facing brickwork. These mortars provide the basis for a successful clinker facade. They are available in numerous colours and defy wind and weather for decades. With facing mortars, the laying of the brickwork and the design of the joint are carried out "in one operation". Subsequently a separate grouting is therefore not necessary.
The exact matching of the facing mortar to the selected bricks is essential. Particular attention must be paid to the porosity (water absorption) of the bricks.
- weber.mix 626 KS is convenient as facing mortar for normal and highly absorbent masonries with a water absorption of > 5%.
- weber.mix 626 VS is convenient as facing mortarsfor poorly or non-absorbent masonries with a water absorption of 2% - 5%.
Basically, the mortar bed must be sufficiently and uniformly thick. This is also valid for all the butt joints and horizontal joints. Missing parts (without facing mortar) are to be avoided.
Dimension for normal joint: butt joint 10 mm; horizontal joint 12 mm.
