FEBMIX DH is a mortar plasticiser in powder form for use as an alternative to lime or as a supplement to lime to aid mortar durability. Complies with EN934/3. FEBMIX DH will entrain microscopic air bubbles into cement mortars in a controlled manner as specified in EN934. Air entrained mixes produce greatly enhanced working properties with a reduced demand for mixing water. FEBMIX DH also improves frost resistance in both freshly laid and hardened mortars, as the microscopic air bubbles entrained provide space for expansion of water due to freezing.
For use as an admixture for mortars to improve workability, in both bricklaying and rendering applications.
Features & Benefits
- Economical: - reduced labour costs - reduced wastage - increased spread rates.

Instructions for Use
FEBMIX DH may be added directly into the mixing drum after the addition of sand or pre-mixed with the gauging water. The use of FEBMIX DH pre-weighed sachets introduced directly to the mix optimises control of dosage and minimises wastage.
The action of FEBMIX DH is entirely physical and therefore requires an efficient mixing action. If mixing is to take place by hand the mix must be well “turned over” to achieve the maximum plasticising effect. Mortar selection should be made in line with the relevant National Standards and Codes of Practice.
The table below gives indicative mix designs relative to uses with and without FEBMIX DH. Portland Cement: Lime, sand mixes which also include an air entraining plasticiser have been shown to be particularly durable in accelerated testing.
FEBMIX DH is added at the rate of 1 sachet per 25Kg bag of cement. Always use the type of sand recommended for a particular application. Test mixes should be carried out to determine optimum dosage.
