26. What is the difference between a slab, a screed or stabilized soil?

Slab: (wet mix) is armed and is used to stabilize the building. The look is raw and in general unpolished. Cement load: 350 kg/m³
Screed: (Wet mix) is lower in cement, 250 kg/m³, no aggregates but only sand and cement.
Stabilized soil: (dry mix) is even poorer in cement, is rather used, for instance, for paved floors, because it crumbles. Forbidden for MORTEX.

30. Should Mortex be protected?

Mortex behaves as a natural stone (waterproof but micro-poreous on its surface). Therefore, a protection against stains (wine, grease…) is recommended indoor: varnish, oil, etc. In all cases, we recommend tests and samples beforehand to validate the appropriate protection.
