Instructions for use

Mixing

For the preparation of mortar adhesive, pour into a container 5.6- 6.4 liters of water for each 20kg bag of Vetoset CA544. Add the powder to the water and mix with a low-speed electric drill fitted with a suitable paddle for 4-5 minutes until achieving a uniform, lump-free consistency. Allow the mixed material to stand for about 10 minutes and remix briefly without adding further water.

Blend Premium Project Fix manually for small quantities and maintain the correct amount of powder to water.

Use the mixed material within 60 minutes at 25 degrees.

Do not try to remix or add water to the mixture once the mortar adhesive starts to harden.

Application

Apply Vetoset CA544 with a trowel, then position the glass blocks in the opening. Use a special molder to verify the glass block alignment. Remove the excess mortar before it hardens.

For Gap filling, compact the mixture by using a smooth rubber spatula. Let the product harden for about 10 minutes; after that, clean the surface using a damp sponge. When the product is well hardened, clean it with a dry cloth.

Cleaning

Clean tools and equipment with water immediately after use. Remove the hardened material using mechanical means.

Surface Preparation

The surface should be sound, clean, free from loose material, etc. Level the horizontal surfaces and ensure that the vertical sides are perfectly plumb-in or secured to guarantee a perfect glass block alignment. The support must be solid, compact, free from loose parts, dust, and greasy substances.
