tuffbed Utility is a pre-mixed bedding mortar packaged in moisture-resistant 25kg bags for convenience in storage, handling, mixing and application. Designed for use in domestic driveways, paths and patios as well as public realm and commercial projects which only have a Type A bedding mortar requirement.

It is a requirement of BS 7533 that 'The laying course should be frost resistant and allow the passage of water through it after it has cured.' tuffbed Utility bedding mortar meets this requirement and ALL other requirements of BS 7533 for type A mortars.

Key features

  • Pre-mixed bedding mortar in a single bag.
  • Suitable for bedding depths of 30-70mm.
  • Reduces the effect of efflorescence, frost damage and picture framing on paving.
  • Fully complies with BS 7533 type A.
  • Suitable for natural stone, porcelain, concrete and granite paving units.
  • Ideal for domestic and local authority utility projects.


Application

  • Clean area and paving units
  • Mix with water in a mixer
  • Check mix consistency
  • Place tuffbed Utility bedding mortar
  • Brush on the bonding mortar
  • Bed unit onto tuffbed Utility bedding mortar

Add the water to achieve a mix consistency which should be sticky, so that a ball can be formed in the palm of one's hand. Bonding mortar where required should be applied using a stiff brush. Allow 24 hours to set before walking on the paving.

For trafficked applications, where there is a concrete base present, a layer of tuffbond priming mortar should be applied to the concrete base before the mixed bedding mortar is put in place.
