3. PROCEDURES

Installation: Concrete Panel

Step #1: Installing the concrete panel:
Ensure that the concrete panel is solidly anchored to the structure and installed according to the manufacturer’s recommendations. Ensure that the concrete panel is installed with the rougher side facing out. Where required, refer to the architectural specifications or consult a structural engineer, to ensure panels are correctly installed.

Step #2: Installing the metal lath:
The installation of the metal lath is an important step. Securely fasten the metal lath with screws and plastic or metal washers.

Step #3: Installing the base coat:
Apply a base layer of SAKRETE Stone Veneer Mortar over the metal lath, leaving the surface slightly roughened. Allow the mortar to cure for at least 24 hours.

Step #4: Applying SAKRETE Stone Veneer Mortar:
All surfaces to be in contact with SAKRETE Stone Veneer Mortar must be free from dust, oil, grease or any other foreign substances that may interfere with the bond of the material.

Step #5: Installing the mortar joints (if required)
Carefully remove any nails installed to support the stone (see Application section). Ensure that the stone is well bonded to the surface. Fill in the joints using SAKRETE Stone Veneer Mortar. Use appropriate jointing tool to obtain the desired finish. If necessary, clean the surface using a nylon brush and clean water.

Procedures for interior applications to: drywall, plywood, concrete panels, etc.

Step 1) Drywall, plywood, concrete panels, etc.
Step 2) Metal lath
Step 3) Base coat
Step 4) SAKRETE Stone Veneer Mortar
Step 5) Install the masonry unit

Procedures for exterior applications to: concrete, masonry, surfaces, concrete panels or plywood*.

Step 1) Concrete, masonry surfaces, concrete panels or plywood
Step 2) Tar paper (*required on plywood)
Step 3) Metal lath
Step 4) Base coat
Step 5) SAKRETE Stone Veneer Mortar
Step 6) Install the masonry unit

Mixing: SAKRETE Stone Veneer Mortar should be mixed with 3.0 L (0.8 US gallon) of potable water per 20 kg (44 lb) bag, in a clean paddle mixer. Add 2.7 L (0.7 US gallon) of water into the mixer along with 20 kg (44 lb) of SAKRETE Stone Veneer Mortar and mix for 3 to 5 minutes. Add only enough of remaining water to bring mix to desired consistency. Clean the mixer immediately after use.

Application: Before applying SAKRETE Stone Veneer Mortar, moisten the receiving surface or the base coat. NOTE: If applying to drywall surfaces, do not moisten surface. Apply the mortar directly onto the surface with a trowel, ensuring that voids are filled. Force the stone against the wall using light pressure for several seconds. Once released, the stone should remain bonded to the surface. Nails may be used under the stone for support. Allow the mortar to cure for 24 hours.

Skin Corrosion/Irritation

May cause moderate or severe irritation based on information for closely related materials.

Serious Eye Damage/Irritation
May cause serious eye damage based on information for closely related materials.

STOT (Specific Target Organ Toxicity) – Single Exposure
Inhalation
May cause severe nose and throat irritation, severe lung injury.

Skin Absorption
No information was located.

Ingestion
May be harmful based on information for closely related materials.

Aspiration Hazard
Can cause lung damage if aspirated based on human experience.

STOT (Specific Target Organ Toxicity) – Repeated Exposure
Causes irritation of the respiratory system. Respiratory tract injury has been observed. Respirable crystalline silica in the form of quartz or cristobalite from occupational sources is listed by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) and National Toxicology Program (NTP) as a lung carcinogen. Prolonged exposure to respirable crystalline silica has been known to cause silicosis, a lung disease, which may be disabling. While there may be a factor of individual susceptibility to a given exposure to respirable silica dust, the risk of contracting silicosis and the severity of the disease is clearly related to the amount of dust exposure and the length of time (usually years) of exposure.

Respiratory and/or Skin Sensitization
May cause an allergic reaction (skin sensitization) based on information for closely related chemicals.
