tuffbed 2-pack is a high-performance, economical bedding mortar for all types of bound paving.

It consists of dry mortar concentrate supplied with non-dried aggregate in the correct ratio for mixing with water on site.

Bedding depths of 20–70mm may be placed in a single layer, while greater thicknesses may be placed in successive layers.

tuffbed 2-pack meets or exceeds the performance requirements of BS 7533-7 and BS 7533-12 It has a high compressive strength and optimal elastic modulus capable of withstanding the stresses of heavy trafficking for a long lifetime and low maintenance.

Paving works may be open to most forms of trafficking within 14 days, and very heavy trafficking within 28 days. For paving requiring full trafficking within 3 hours, refer to tuffset G.

Where an enhanced adhesion bond is required for certain applications, refer to SteinTec tuffbond bonding/priming mortar.

Additional features and benefits

  • Shrinkage compensated – reducing risk of building permanent stress into the pavement caused by shrinkage
  • Cement-based – no resins or epoxies, which become brittle or decay with age
  • Water permeable bedding
  • Reduced carbon footprint – non-dried aggregate uses less energy in production, transport and storage is easier: it is a more economical and environmentally considerate option
