Guidance

Execution 

A trowel can be used for several kinds of tasks. Some of these tasks will be mentioned here: 

Applying mortar 

Plaster should not be applied immediately after the construction because the masonry has to be dry first. The setting of the lime in the mortar does not take place until the humidity percentage in the masonry is below 7 % of the original mortar humidity. By covering the masonry prudently during the construction, the drying-out period of the masonry is shortened. Before the mortar is applied, any unevennesses in the bricks are removed. The adhesion is generally best when the mortar is cast on, but in the case of thin surface treatments, the mortar is applied with a steel board. Then the outer layer is removed with a diagonal movement with the steel board or a trowel.

Water scouring

The mortar is applied in as thin layers as possible with a steel board. Then the excess mortar is scraped off with the steel board or a trowel. The walls are scoured with a wet brick, thus the name water scouring. The brick should be dipped in water frequently. By doing this, the surface is processed and any protrusions are knocked off with the scouring brick. After the treatment, the finished surface appears even and only has previous unevennesses that are now filled with mortar. As many brick surfaces as possible appear without mortar layers and only with a hint of binders. Any loose sand grains can be removed by using a masonry brush, once the layer is dry.

Smoothing

The mortar is applied in as thin layers as possible with a steel board. Then the excess mortar is scraped off with the steel board or a trowel.

The surface is treated with a smoothing board in circular movements. A smoothing board is covered with felt. If you are using smoothing boards that are not covered with felt but with foam rubber, you should note that the binders are easily steeped and left in limited areas. After the treatment, the finished surface appears even and only has previous unevennesses that are now filled with mortar. As many brick surfaces as possible appear without mortar layers and only with a hint of binders. Any loose sand grains can be removed by using a masonry brush, once the layer is dry. 

Sack cloth scouring

The mortar is applied in as thin layers as possible with a steel board. Then the excess mortar is scraped off with the steel board or a trowel. The surface is processed with a piece of sack cloth, thus the name sack cloth scouring. After the treatment, the finished surface appears even and only has previous unevennesses that are now filled with mortar. The main part of the brick surfaces appears without mortar layers and only with a hint of binders. Any loose sand grains can be removed by using a masonry brush, once the layer is dry.

Exterior treatment

Before you start the treatment, you should water as described in the section on thin plastering. On exterior masonry, you first cast a layer of mortar with a thinner texture and a greater content of binders than the coarse plaster mortar itself. Then the layer is knocked off. Then the coarse plaster mortar is applied. You can cast it on with a trowel, apply it with a plastering board or spray it on with a mortar pump. Then the mortar is smoothened with a plasterer’s trowel and raked up with a mortar board, a pothole plasterer and a fl oat until the desired surface is achieved. When several layers of mortar in a row are to be applied, the size of the grains should decrease in the layers from inside and out.

After use, rinse the trowel thoroughly with water.
