What is mortar plasticiser?

Mortar plasticiser is a product that has been designed to increase the workability of mortar, whether it is used for brick laying or render. 

What does mortar plasticiser do?

Mortar plasticiser can be used in the place of lime, which is traditionally added to mortar to create a smoother mix that is shrink free, and adds some flexibility when the mortar dries to allow for thermal expansion and contraction.  However, when lime is added to mortar, the mortar takes longer to dry, and weakens it slightly. 

When mortar plasticiser is added, the mortar becomes much smoother and shrink free, and also adds some flexibility when dried. In comparison to mortar mixed with lime, the initial setting period of the mortar when mixed with mortar plasticiser is still reasonably fast, whilst allowing time for adjustments, and remains strong. Additionally, the mortar plasticiser increases resistance to frost.
