Known for their lightweight and unmatched strength, AAC blocks are gradually changing the construction landscape worldwide. Their impeccable heat resistance and sound proofing properties further make them an ideal building material. And, the best thing is it is very easy to join them together and create a wall. This becomes possible with Magicbond – Block Joining Adhesive, which is a factory mixed thin bed mortar made up of cement, graded sand and blended with polymers.
Even having no prior masonry experience isn’t a barrier in doing this. Here’s how you can join AAC blocks with Magicbond – Block Joining Adhesive and build a wall that will stand the test of the time.
Prepare the mortar as recommended
First of all, it is imperative to prepare the mortar as directed. Pour 1 bag of Magicbond – Block Joining Adhesive in 11-14 liters of clean potable water. Use a stirrer to mix it thoroughly.
Make the surface wet before applying Magicbond
To allow Magicbond – Block Joining Adhesive to work better, spray some water on the surface of the AAC block prior to its application.
Apply a 2-3mm layer of Magicbond – Block Joining Adhesive
In comparison to conventional mortar, Magicbond – Block Joining Adhesive provides high bond strength even with a thin layer of application. So, apply a 2-3mm layer only.
Step 4: Put another AAC block and continue the process
Place another unit of AAC block on the mortar bed and hammer it with a rubber mallet lightly on the top. Repeat the process till your wall is ready.
