Questions & Answers

can I tint this product to buff color?

can I tint this product to buff color?
Asked by: chip
Both Grey and White 1-2-3Mortar can be tinted to a Buff color by using a Liquid cement color (Buff) that is readily available. White will give you lighter shades of Buff and Grey will give you darker or dirtier hues. Liquid colorant needs to be added to the water first, then the coloured water into the 1-2-3Mortar bag as per instructions, mix well to brake lumps and get a uniform mix and color. The amount of colorant can only be determined by you at the moment, usually you should aim for a slightly darker color while the product is wet, so once it dry's out and excess water has evaporated you end up with a lighter color. If you need any specifics, please contact us.

Also did not provide as much mortar as stated in their promotional materials. What looked like a simple , waste free option turned out to be a total waste on my project.

I followed the directions EXACTLY to mix 8 ounces of water or slightly more. Could not get the mixture to flow smoothly out of the small hole. Put in more water; still would not come out easily and what I could get to come out would not stick on concrete blocks. I was trying to replace faux stone facing on an old block wall. Had to fall back on my old method and use construction adhesive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Did the job well It did what I wanted, but the bag was hard to mix and apply with. So I emptied into a bucket and it was great. No real issues, but maybe with practice the bag would have worked. First time use.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from No advantage to average user. The product touts it self as doing more with less. It flatly does not. If you or your crew slings normal mortar around like you are playing in a pig pen then "possibly yes", it will, but same coverage, same adhesion, no. Not even close. Simple volume, 5 pounds of material will not do the same as 60 pounds. It does Not expand after you mix it up. The Tiny box that says it replaces a bag, IS all you get. The product also has no advantage in dry time. It's strength is only slightly better than a hand mixed mortar and no better than the 80 or 60 pound bad of Type S or M full strength mortar available at most hardware store at about 2.5 - 60 lbs bags to 1 - 5 lbs box.. Other mortars have quicker dry times or fiber reinforcements or more material to work with. This product, while not entirely bad for what it is, offers nothing "special" for it's increased cost per unit. If you buy gas for 10.00 a gallon, you are expecting jet racing fuel and not the same 1.89 unleaded you could have purchased for less. The small wire reinforced pond (in the photo below) finishes out with about 10 bags of mortar. If you purchase a bonder / fortifier with it and even add 5% more portand, you can still do it for around 50.00. The picture below is 5 boxes of this product, which doesn't even come close to covering the scratch coat requirements for about 50.00. At this rate I would need about 45 more boxes valued around 450.00. No thank you. Now, if you want a tiny box of mortar to set a few blocks, rocks or fix a few cracks and don't want to haul around a heavy messy bag. This is your product. Mix as directed then throw it away when you are done, or take a little out and mix it in a cup or bucket and save the rest for another day. You can even haul it in your glove box.
