I have access to some 300kl of mortar and I wanted to do something useful
with it. I do need to lay a path in the garden and want to know if there
is any way to use this mortar. Presumably it will desintegrate quickly if
mixed with just water? Is there anything I can do to make it tougher,
like add some sand or some additive?
kl could mean kilolitres. 1000 litres = 1 cubic metre therefore 300 kl
= 300 cubic metres
kl could be a typo for kg. One kilogram equals 2.2 pounds therefore 300
kg = 300 x 2.2 pounds = 660 pounds = 5.89 cwt.
In either case it is a LOT of mortar.
Opps! Kilograms it is. It is a lot of mortar and my tenant left it in
the yard that he was renting from me. I just happen to need a path laid and
he also left a cement mixer. Is there any way to use this mortar for laying
a path? There must be a trick of some kind.
Definitely mortar, I'm not a builder and my knowledge of these matters is
almost zero. I simply have access to a lot of mortar, a mechanical cement
mixer and a path that needs to be laid on top of a badly broken up concrete
path. I do know that this mortar is supposed to be for use on the inside
walls of houses. I would however like to mix it up and make a path with it,
if thats possible.
