- 30-70mm bedding depth
- Helps prevent moisture-related paving issues
- Fully complies with BS7533-101, Table 9, Type 25 and 35 bedding mortars
- Mixed 4:1 with tuffgrit (4 tuffgrit : 1 tuffbed 2-pack). tuffbed 2-pack purchases do not include tuffgrit, tuffgrit is sold separately.
A High Performance Type 35, Free Draining, Low Carbon Bedding Mortar.
tuffbed 2-pack is designed for use as the laying course on commercial and larger projects for natural stone, clay, concrete or porcelain paving units in bound construction.
Features and Benefits
Suitable for pavement construction up to traffic category 9.
Performance exceeds BS7533 requirements for Type 25 and Type 35 bedding mortars and in particular, the requirement for positive vertical and horizontal permeability and frost resistance when cured.
tuffbed 2-pack has a maximum capillarity rise of 20mm in accordance with BS7533-101: 2021 5.4.1 when tested to Annex C.
Low carbon profile: a two-part product without pre-dried, pre-blended aggregate with the binder supplied separately so that the need for energy-intensive central processing is avoided, saving up to 50% of the energy used to produce a typical pre-blended product where all ingredients are dried.
Bedding depths of 30-70mm can be placed in a single layer. Greater depths are achieved by placing successive layers.
Structure is vital for High PerformanceTo meet all the performance requirements of BS7533-101:2021, something few proprietary mortars achieve, Steintec takes a scientific approach to the selective grading of aggregate used in its bedding mortars. These are close graded for hardness, angularity, and natural interlock, characteristics which are key to providing inherent strength. The addition of the highest quality binder results in the need for less binder whilst still delivering exceptional strength and the levels of permeability and resistance to capillary rise demanded by BS7533-101:2021 Table 9.
