23. 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.

24. MX04 – Is it possible to keep a rest of the MORTEX® product?

If the products are kept in their original, well-sealed packaging and according to the storage conditions recommended in the technical data sheets, you can re-use them for another job.

This is why BEAL sells neutral, uncoloured products.

26. MX05 – Is it possible to use other products than those in the MORTEX® coating range?

Key words: Mortex, compatibility, competition, brands

27. 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.

28. MX06 – Construction of a swimming pool with a MORTEX®-coating?

29. Who to ask to apply Mortex?

On request, Beal can provide you with a list of recommended professionals who apply MORTEX. We always advise you to visit projects of the professional you are going to choose and to request a sample of the selected product with its protection, since it can significantly change the look and colors. This will also allow you to assess the finishings, rendering, inside corners, outside corners, etc.

30. MX07 – How to avoid stains on a varnished MORTEX® coating?

For a varnish to be efficient, it must be applied according to the rules of art and the prescriptions of the technical data sheets available on www.bealinternational.com .
Damage on a scratched varnished substrate can be equivalent to that of an unprotected substrate.

Stains in these areas may be difficult or even impossible to remove.
The technical data sheet of each product (available on www.bealinternational.com) must scrupulously observed be during application.

In order to obtain efficient results, it is necessary to :
– to apply the protection on a clean and dust-free surface and wait until it completly dries.,
– apply the varnishes with suitable brushes and rollers and regularly cross each pass, lightening the pressure put on the tool crescendo.
– on a structured and/or open-pored support, tapping with an “ad hoc” brush is imperative to make the varnish penetrate to the bottom of the cavities formed by the pores. If this work is not carried out in this way, water and grease will penetrate into these cavities, will be picked up by capillary action and will reveal a stain that is difficult or even impossible to remove even under the chosen protection.
