As AAC blocks weigh less than 18 kg, they can be easily carried from one place to another, significantly reducing the time involved in construction. Now, when you have AAC blocks at the right place quickly, the challenge is to glue them together to construct a load bearing or non-load bearing wall. This goal can be easily realized with thin bed mortar.
For gluing AAC blocks, it is imperative for engineers to use thin bed mortar for better results, as it is easier to use and has initial setting time of just 3.5 hours, and final setting time of only 48 hours. Suitable for both interior as well as exterior walls, the thin bed mortar is a revolutionary product that offers an impeccable quality owing to it being a pre-mixed factory product, and developed exclusively for joining AAC blocks.
The thin bed mortar offers unbelievable functional benefits like it helps keep masonry lightweight, gives excellent bond strength and adhesion, especially for the wall subjected to vibration. It also enhances thermal and seepage resistance, as well as the sound insulation property of the wall.
And that’s not all, the thin bed mortar offers a plenty of operational benefits as well like it –
