Title: Aircrete: thin joint mortar systems

Ref Code: DG432

Abstract1: Thin mortar joint systems are being introduced to the UK for commercial or industrial buildings. Using aircrete units with a rapid setting mortar, the thin joint system allows rapid masonry construction without adversely affecting quality. Some aspects of thin joint construction differ from traditional masonry construction and they must be understood in order to gain the maximum benefits from the system. This Digest explains the technical background, properties and benefits of thin joint mortar systems.
