Easier and Faster Bricklaying

How to mix better mortar for easier and faster bricklaying and also comply with Australian Masonry Standards and Building Codes. Don't use banned mortar additives which can be harmful to mortar and reduce bond strength and affect the quality of brickwork. Use METCELL methyl cellulose water thickener for the best mortar mix every time. Improve mortar bond strength, mortar durability and comply with Australian Masonry Standards and Building Codes.

 A Better Mortar Mix

Make mortar easy to lay bricks with.  Add METCELL methyl cellulose DYNEX type water thickener into the mortar mix. Only a very small amount of METCELL methyl cellulose water thickener for mortar is needed to thicken the water for mixing into mortar, to make it soft and fluffy and easy to work with and without harming bond strength like many other mortar additives can. Complies with Australian Masonry Standards and best practises.
