SURFACE PREPARATION :

Remove all impurities, dirt, grease, other bond inhibiting materials from surface. Preparation work should be done using manual or pneumatic cutting techniques. Dampen surface to be repaired with clean water.

MIXING :

The mixing ratio is approximately 5 parts powder to 1 part water. Use clean container. Pour water into mixing container. The mixing may be done by hand or using a slow speed drill (300-450 rpm) with a mixing paddle. The mortar should be the consistency of damp sand. Do not over water. Do not over-mix.
