INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE:

Car-VZ is designed to provide optimum performance when dosed at 0.17 Lbs. per 1 Lb of cement.

When making your mix from scratch we suggest the following example as a good starting point:

60# of type I Portland cement

10# of Car-VZ

1 (5-gallon) pail of coarse sand (1/8” minus)

0.5 (5-gallon) pail of fine sand (40 mesh or so)

Water is added slowly during mixing to meet your desired consistency.

Make some trials and adjust as preferred.

When adding Car-VZ to a pre-blended mortar mix figure that the blend is roughly 33% cement.

For Example:

1-80 Lb. bag of mortar mix will contain about 26.5  lb. of cement. 26.5  lb X 0.17 lb = 4.5 lb of Car-VZ.

Water is added slowly during mixing to meet your desired consistency.

To further customize/ personalize your desired mix you can add additional fiber/ clay or any material of your choice.
