SECTION 3: EXECUTION

3.1 PREPARATORY WORK

The cutting depth of the joints to be redone must be around 25 mm (from 2 to 2½ times the thickness of a 10 mm joint), or until you reach the mortar that is sound looking. During the work described hereafter, the contractor-mason must be very diligent to prevent any damage to the stone, the biscuit or the edge of the brick.

Verify the state of the joints and remove deteriorated mortar using one of the following methods:

.1 Using a cold chisel, either by hand or attached to a compressed air cannon, apply a light pressure so as not to damage the masonry unit.

.2 Using a radial saw (with a 100 mm diameter diamond blade) for the horizontal joints. However, this can only be done by experienced workers who are recognized for their ability to do this kind of work. If this is the case, then only drill at the centre of the joint and finish the job using a chisel.

.3 Remove the waterproofing product around the edge of the openings (doors, windows, etc.) in order to be able to re-point as much of the surface as possible.

.4 Determine whether or not the voids need to be refilled.

.5 Before repointing, the contractor must inform the architect if he/she finds any voids that are not specified on the plans and are structurally abnormal.

3.2 MIXING THE MORTAR

.1 Mix the mortar using a clean mortar mixer or an electric drill fitted with an appropriate end piece free of dried mortar, traces of rust and other contaminants; do not thaw equipment with salt or other anti-freeze agents.

.2 Conformity: Comply with the requirements, recommendations and specifications indicated on the manufacturer’s Technical Data Sheet.

.3 Mix the repointing mortar until you get a consistency that’s firm enough to form a ball with your hands. If using KING MasonCare 300, let it rest for about 30 minutes before applying.

.4 The total mixing time should not take less than 3 minutes or longer than 5 minutes. Coloured mortar should be mixed between 8-10 minutes.

.5 If using 30-kg bags of coloured or non-coloured mortar, the contractor must not mix less than one bag at a time.

3.3 MIXING THE GROUT

.1 Mix the grout using a clean electric drill free of dried mortar or traces of rust and other contaminants, or using a conventional grout mixer. If using KING HL-5 grout, use a high-shear mixer. Do not thaw equipment with salt or other anti-freeze agents.

.2 Conformity: Comply with the requirements, recommendations and specifications indicated on the manufacturer’s Technical Data Sheet.

.3 If using 30 KG bags of grout, the contract must not mix less than one bag at a time.

3.4 PLACEMENT TIMEFRAME FOR MORTAR AND GROUT

Mortar
.1 If room temperature is equal to or greater than 25°C, mortar must be placed in under 1.5 hours after mixing. If room temperature is less than 25°C, mortar must be placed in under 2.5 hours after mixing.

Grout
.1 Grout must be placed in under 1.5 hours after mixing.

3.5 REMIXING

.1 With the exception of hydraulic-lime-based mortars, remixing is done to ensure the necessary workability of the mortar.

3.6 REPOINTING

.1 Use potable water to wash off all dust and residue from the exposed joints, but leave a bit of moisture in the existing joints to prevent water from absorbing too quickly into the old and pre-existing mortar.

.2 Apply a first layer of mortar in the joints in a manner to obtain a uniform depth (+ 25 mm) using a pointing trowel to fill in the joints; once this layer has cured (24 hours), apply successive layers of 6 mm. Make sure each layer is well compacted to prevent air pockets, and allow each layer to lightly cure before applying the next one, until you are level with the wall surface. Finish the new joints in the same way as the original ones.

3.7 COLOUR UNIFORMITY

In order to ensure colour uniformity of the mortar, the contractor must:

.1 Use the same supplier for all mortar and grout..1 Use the same supplier for all mortar and grout.

.2 Ensure that the quantity of water in the mortar joints remains the same while smoothing them.

.3 Always use a clean mixer.

3.8 CURING

Curing is essential to optimize the physical properties of the mortar

Curing must be done using a moist cure starting with the initial setting of the mortar.

.1 During working hours, spray the mortar lightly with water using a sprayer.

.2 After working hours and on weekends, create a system whereby the mortar is enclosed with a jute, which is in turn enclosed by polyethylene, and constantly wet it so that it remains humid creating a greenhouse effect.

.3 The jute and polyethylene should never come in direct contact with the mortar. Leave a minimum space of 4 inches between the jute and the wall surface to allow air to circulate.

.4 Minimum cure times:

.1 For KING MasonCare 300: 3 days
.2 For KING HLM-350: 7 days
.3 For KING HLM-500: 7 days
.4 For KING PHL-350: no cure is needed
.5 For KING PHL-500: no cure is needed

3.9 CLEANING

.1 Protect the masonry works and the adjacent work from soiling and other damaging elements.

.2 Cover the finished work with tarpaulin to protect them against mortar spatter.

.3 After finishing the work, remove the excess mortar using a wooden blade. Once the mortar has sufficiently cured:

.1 Moisten the wall surface with clean water, starting from the bottom.
.2 Scour the wall surface with soapy water and a non-metallic brush with hard bristles, starting from the top.
.3 Rinse with clean water as needed.

NOTE: Never use any type of acid, even diluted.
