Trowel Ready Mortar
Roadstone Trowel Ready Mortar has been available for over 25 years; it is produced in modern batching plants and delivered pre-mixed to site in quantities to suit the customer’s requirements.
It holds the required properties of cohesiveness and workability for its designated retardation period in the delivery skips, but starts to set as it loses water into the block or brickwork being laid.
It is supplied in a 36 hour TRM. It can be used on the day of delivery and will get you started the next day.
1 cubic metre of TRM weighs approx 1.5 ~ 1.65 Tonnes and is normally supplied in 0.33 m3 metre bags or bins.
“The Roadstone TRM mortar at the National Skills Competition was ideal for the brickwork project we had to build, the mortar was nice and workable and had a nice creamy consistency to it which made building the project just that bit easier for us. It was very consistent when going off which made it very easy for us to time the pointing of the brick in the competition this allowed us to build as much as we could and yet still be able to point up the brickwork to our desired finish.
The mortar when pointed was very aesthetically pleasing to the eye and this allowed us to get as much points for the overall appearance of our projects in the competition. Overall the mortar supplied was perfect for the job at hand and I could definitely see myself using more of the Roadstone mortar for future jobs”.
