Valsec Bloque Vidrio

Mortar designed specifically for laying glass blocks.

Scope of application

Construction or grouting of walls made of solid or hollow glass blocks.

Indoor and outdoor use.

Bagged (20 kg. bags).

Colorours

White.

Mixing instructions

Add approximately 7 litres of water per bag of VALSEC BLOQUE DE VIDRIO. Mix by hand or with a slow electric mixer to obtain a smooth paste. Let stand for 5 minutes before using. Then mix again. Use within 90 minutes of mixing.

Substrate preparation

The glass blocks must be clean. The blocks should be anchored mechanically to the adjoining wall, and dilation/separation joints should be provided. They must be clean and dampened.

Instructions for application

Spread the mortar on the glass block. Use spacers to ensure a homogeneous grout line of at least 10 mm. Reinforce the wall with galvanized steel rods (4-6 mm), but they must not come into contact with the glass. The horizontal rods should be interlaced with the vertical rods. Once the mortar begins to set, smooth and finish with a rubber trowel. Do not use if there is a risk of rain or frost. Work at temperatures between 5ºC and 35ºC.
