Application Information
Instructions for use

Mixing
For the preparation of mortar adhesive, pour into a container 5.6- 6.4 litres of water for each 20 Kg 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 a uniform, lump-free consistency is achieved. Allow the mixed material to stand for about 10 minutes and remix briefly with no further water to be added.
It can also be blended manually for small quantity but ensure correct amount of powder to water is maintained.
Mixed material can be used within 60 minutes at 25 degrees C.
Do not try to remix or add water to the mixture once the mortar adhesive starts to harden. If the material starts to harden.

Application
Apply Vetoset CA544 with a trowel, then position the glass blocks in the opening. Use special moulder to verify the glass block alignment. Remove the excess of mortar before it hardens.
For Gap filling, compact the product 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 rag.

Cleaning
Tools and equipment can be cleaned with water immediately after use. Hardened materials will require removal by mechanical means.

Surface Preparation

The surface should be sound, clean free from loose material etc. Horizontal surfaces must be leveled and vertical sides should be perfectly plumb-in or secured in order to guarantee a perfect alignment of glass blocks. The support must be solid, compact, free from loose parts, dust and greasy substances.
