Processing
Work with clay blocks according to the rules of masonry. Pre-wetting the clay blocks in the horizontal masonry joints increases the masonry’s strength. We recommend heavy clay masonry mortar (CLAYTEC 05.020, 05.220) as masonry mortar. If lime plaster is planned, scrape out the joints in the fresh masonry sharply to create a recess of approx. 0.3 mm.
