Description:

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

Colour Matching Service

Due to variations in devices and display screens, it is not possible for us to give brick colour matching recommendations from photographs.

For assistance in colour matching please send a small sample of the material that you are trying to match, and we will provide the closest match from our standard colour range. Simply send a small piece, at least the size of a 1p coin, with your full contact details to:

Steadfast Specialist Products Ltd, The Yard, Orchard Cottage, Cary Fitzpaine, Somerset, BA22 8JB
