BENEFITS OF USE
• Excellent adhesion for vertical and overheadapplications
• Optimum carving properties
• Proprietary system reduces cracking and will not affect the carving experience
• Simple one dose powdered admixture
• Enhanced freeze/thaw protection
• Reduces efflorescence
• Boosts compression and flexuralstrengths
Car-VZ is designed to provide excellent performance at 12% of the cement weight. Optimum performance when dosed at 17% of cement weight.
When making your mix from scratch we suggest the following example as a good starting point:
• 94 # of type I Portlandcement
• 12 # of Car-VZ
• 3 (5-gallon) pails of coarse sand (1/8” minus)/ Fine sand can be substituted for a portion of course sand Water is added slowly during mixing tomeet your desired consistency. Make some trials and adjust as preferred When adding Car-VZ to a pre-blended mortar mix figure that the blend is roughly 33% cement. For example:
• 1-80 lb. bag of mortar mix will contain about 26.5 lb. of cement. 26.5 lb X 0.12 lb = 3 lb of Car-VZ.
• Wateris added slowly during mixing to meet your desired consistency.
• To further customize / personalize your desired mix you can add additional fiber / clay or any material of your choice.
