. READY-TO-USE MORTARS
Ready-to-use mortar is factory-produced off-site and then delivered in large plastic skips. Ready-to-use mortars contain retarding additives, which slow the hydration and setting process, so that the working life of such mortars varies from a minimum of 36 hours up to 72 hours, depending on the nature of the agents that have been added. Factory production has the advantage that it ensures consistent quality from one delivery to the next.
