KLIPLA®F is a modified trass-containing mortar mix designed for pointing brick slips. Together with thermal insulation panels - KLIPLA®P, fasteners (anchors) -KLIPLA®D, adhesive mortar -KLIPLA®K and brick slips KLIPLA®C, it makes up the KLIPLA® external wall cladding system with a real brick slips finish . The mortar can be applied both indoors and outdoors
KLIPLA®F is a ready-to-use dry mix made of top quality cement-based binder, aggregates and modern modifiers. It contains trass–a mineral that highly reduces the possibility of efflorescence on a brick slips facade. It is innovative, efficient, very comfortable and easy to use. The mortar features very good workability, is easy to shape and features enhanced adhesion, flexibility and vapour-permeability. It is frost-proof and water-resistant
Before starting pointing a brick slips facade, clean thoroughly the joints between brick slips and remove any dust, dirt and deposits. The joints should be of the same depth, that’s why while installing brick slips to the KLIPLA®P panels, the excess of KLIPLA®K adhesive mortar should be removed on a regular basis. Pointing the facade clad with brick slips can be started once the KLIPLA®K adhesive mortar used to fix them is set, not later than after 48 hours. Directly before pointing, the brick slips should be sprinkled with water using a sprayer
To prepare the pointing mortar KLIPLA®K pour the entire bag contents into a vessel containing a pre-measured amount of water (proportion 2,00 ÷ 2,25l per 25 kg of dry mix) and stir it to obtain homogenous consistency. It should be stirred mechanically using a low-speed drill with a paddle or in a mixer. The mortar is ready to use after leaving it for approx. 5 minutes and after remixing. The ready to use mortar must be used entirely within approximately 1 hours. Further adding water and remixing is impermissible.
