HAVING PROBLEMS DUE TO LOW TEMPERATURES? We have been inundated with enquiries stemming from mortar failures due to low temperatures this winter. Projects throughout the UK have been affected due to the unusually severe weather conditions this winter.
Did you know that a 1:1:6 cement:lime:sand can, if conditions prevail, be susceptible to frost attack for up to 10 weeks after placing? The risks involved in using natural hydraulic limes are more onerous as the curing times are longer for lime mortars than for cement mortars. Do get in touch if you require any further information. We have been running several 'Winter Working' seminars recently and will do so again towards the end of summer/autumn 2010. If you would be interested in attending please contact us to be added to our waiting list.
