QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
I have a bag of this already, previously ordered. Can I mix any dye in with it? And also, when it finally sets up, should I be able to scratch it with my fingernail?
Iron oxide pigments can be added up to 5%. We recommend using solomon colors which is designed for adding to mortar mixes.
No, once the mortar is fully hardened you should not be able to scratch it with your fingernail. In rare situations where a soft mortar is needed we would recommend using the NHL 2.0 or the Lime Putty as the binder then adding your own sand.
