Aquascape Bonding Mortar Kit

D-D Marco Aquascape Bonding Mortar is the ideal solution for securely attaching D-D Marco Coraline Rocks, or other reef rocks together, weather to simply form a stable structure or to create an elaborate gravity defying aquascape. Once dry the mortar provides a bond as strong as the rock itself with the coralline colour of the mortar perfectly matching and blending in with the D-D Marco Coraline Rock.

This 5 lb kit comes complete with mortar powder, liquid with an acrylic polymer (to keep the joint from getting brittle in water), instructions, mixing spatula, and a bucket to do the mixing in.

If you do not need to mix the entire batch, when finished simply rinse and dry the bucket, seal the packets of any dry unused mortar powder and polymer liquid then store in a cool dry place in the closed bucket.

The mortar sets in about 20 minutes so only mix the amount you can easily use in this time. Once rocks are bonded they can be carefully handled after approximately 2 hours, full curing and bond strength takes 24 hours. For best results, don't touch or move rocks for 24 hours after building.

100% non toxic and ICP tested.
