Introduction

ASCOFIX TBM is Thin Bed Block Jointing Mortar is a pre-mixed high quality mortar for AAC (Autoclaved Aerated) blocks or equivalent. ASCOFIX TBM semi premix consists of cement, graded sand and specialised polymers which combine to give superior strength, water retention and stability. It replaces the conventional method and material of jointing mortar which requires a 12-18 mm thickness with a revolutionary 2-3 mm joint thickness. Ascolite Thin Bed Block Jointing Mortar only requires addition of water before application to prepare the product for use, reducing the hassle of measuring and maintaining various individual elements to create a conventional mortar. Standard specification code followed is ASTM C1660-09.
