E-Crete supplies thin-bed mortar and
repair mortar, which are specifically manufactured
for use with AAC blocks and lintels. It comes
in ready-to-mix powder form. Just 1/16 inch mortar
bed is needed to adhere the products. This extremely
thin joint prevents heat loss and speeds installation. For
best results, apply the thin-bed mortar with a notched
trowel choosing a trowel the same width as the block.
Repair mortar is used to repair walls
where cuts or channels were made to install wiring
or plumbing. Cover channels with
repair mortar or fiberglass tape. Use the repair mortar
prior to application of exterior or interior plasters. When
covering E-Crete with sheetrock or other sheathing
materials, block patch may not be necessary.
