kAlx Pointing and Masonry Mortar is a purely mineral product, composed of hydraulic lime and is excellently suited for repointing brick and stone in non to moderately salt-loaded substrates.
Suitable for use on internal and external applications, our pointing mortar is composed of natural hydraulic lime. It is highly vapour permeable and is available in a range of 28 colours and in super-fine, fine, medium and coarse grades.
kAlx lime-based Pointing and Masonry Mortar undergoes a relatively quick carbonation and hydraulic hardening process. Both hardening processes run parallel and so result in an acceptable strength after only a few days.
In order to obtain an accurate colour match with your existing mortar we highly recommend purchasing the Kalx Pointing Mortar Colour Sample Tray
