Thin-bed mortar

When using thin-bed mortar or adhesive mortar other joint widths apply. The joint width is in fact so small that grouting afterwards becomes unnecessary. The façade gets a more massive image and the colour intensity increases.

SEIFERT® thin-bed mortars are an alternative for bonded facing bricks. It means traditional masonry with a trowel, but with joint thicknesses from 4mm to 8mm. After processing, thin-bed mortar has the same aesthetic properties as bonded masonry but with much higher bond strength than traditional masonry. The mortar is recessed and during the masonry, the mortar is possibly drawn deep with the jointer so that it is no longer necessary to grout. Unlike adhesive mortars, very jagged stone sizes can be processed with a thin joint.
