Lancaster Lime Works Lime Putty Mortar Mix SECONDS for bedding and repointing comes in a five gallon bucket, premixed with sand and ready to use. Our “seconds” have all the same great characteristics as our first quality Lime Putty Mortar except that it will be odd colors from one bucket to the next. Lime Putty Mortar Mix Seconds can be used to repoint or parge the basement, then simply add a coat of our White Limewash, and no one will know the difference! Perfect mortar to use on old outbuilding repoints! Or use this mortar as bedding mortar, then repoint the exterior with your choice of first quality Lime Putty Mortar Mix. Great for a cost conscious project!
Use eye and skin protection. Lime is caustic! To use, remove the lid, pour the water into another bucket and save the water. Rigorously mix right in the bucket using a right angle drill and our Drill Beater attachment for at least 5 minutes. The mortar, when thoroughly mixed will stick to your tools. Ensure the substrate is thoroughly wet before repointing. Protect from hard driving rains during carbonation. To avoid failures, do not repoint in temperatures below 40° F. The mortar must not freeze before it carbonates! Each bucket weighs 80 pounds and will last in the bucket indefinitely, to store, make sure water is on the top of the mortar, and protect from freezing.
Lime Putty Mortar Mix SECONDS will re-point approximately 65 square feet for a 3/8″ wide mortar joint at 3/4″ deep.
THERE IS NO MATCHING COLOR GUARENTEE!! WE WILL DO OUR BEST TO SEND MORTAR FROM THE SAME LOT. ORDER ALL THAT YOU NEED AT ONE TIME.
