TDP Mortar Fleece 1x30m
TDP Mortar Fleece has been designed to act as a barrier against frost and heavy rain and also strong sunlight which can dry the mortar mix prematurely. The unique structure of the fabric provides a stabilised climate for optimum mortar curing conditions.
When placed on top of a wall or vertical structure the central section of the mortar fleece will prevent ingress of water. Overall, the material will protect against heavy rain, frost and strong sunlight. The edges of TDP Mortar Fleece have been reinforced and machined with a slit to enable a tethering of the fleece at regular intervals along the length of the wall or structure. Alternatively, TDP Mortar Fleece can simply be weighted down by bricks, timber or other materials.
TDP Mortar Fleece is easy to use and the material can either be kept on the roll and unfurled to a suitable length or cut to fit a length of wall.
Mortar Fleece Test Results
TDP Mortar Fleece has been developed over the last two years with trials taking place at a number of sites in the UK and has recently been tested at CERAM, the leading building and materials technology specialist based in Stoke-on-Trent.
"The use of Mortar Fleece, in all the conditions tested as part of this investigation, shows that there is a distinct benefit over the lack of protection commonly found on UK building sites. Mortar Fleece offers protection and ease of use in the majority of weather conditions experienced in the UK, and thus will minimise the intrinsic defects that result from frost damage, saturation of the brickwork and cavity fill, and the reduction in mortar strength resulting from a loss of moisture from the mortar due to warm, dry and windy conditions."
