Directions for use:

Mix water, EcoSYN and cement for minimum of 1 minute before adding sand.
Important: Always add EcoSYN immediately AFTER the cement. Allow all ingredients to mix for minimum of 8 minutes. Add water as reqiuired to achieve ideal workability
(do not use excess water). Depending on the quality of sand, dose rates of EcoSYN can vary for bricklaying mortar (approx, 100-150g). EcoSYN can be increased up to 300g or decreased to 100g and will not hard the mortar in any way. When rendering start with 220g of EcoSYN and increase up to 300g if more stickiness is required.

* Please note: EcoSYN cannot be used as a replacement for Hydrated Lime in soil stabisation and septic waste applications.
Limitations: EcoSYN is not a Hydrated Lime replacement in traditional sand/lime mortar
