3. Lime/Prompt Hybrid Mortar

For the laying of stone, decorative low walls made of stone or brick, outdoor pavings, etc. Cf. French DTU 20.1.


DOSE IN VOLUME

In your usual natural hydraulic lime (NHL) dose, replace 1/3 of the volume with Prompt.

NB: tempo does not need to be added to mixtures with a weak proportion of Prompt.

The advantages

  • Speeds up the lime
  • Limits creep in the fresh joint
  • Ensures fixing and joining in one pass
  • Allows working in cold weather

Usage precautions

  • Do not overdose with water, beat or add water.
  • In the presence of steel, visible steels should be passivated.
  • In cold weather, it is not recommended to use frozen aggregates.
  • The open time of your mixture can be adapted to fit your structure’s needs by using the cement setting retarder Tempo.
