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

It is a pre-blended single-bagged product that offers convenience on site: one bag, just add water.

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

tuffbed 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 that become brittle or decay with age
  • Water-permeable bedding
