Brick Repair: Coloured Brick Mortar from Twistfix
Following on from the previous edition of the Twistfix blog, which focused on brick dyes, this article showcases our extensive range of colour-matching brick repair mortars. These specialised products allow for the fast and effective restoration of face bricks.
The face bricks of any building are crucial, helping to protect the structure and make it aesthetically pleasing. Over time, the destructive effects of age, damp and frost can mount up, eventually necessitating expensive, intrusive and labour-intensive replacement of damaged bricks. Coloured brick repair mortar from Twistfix can help to prevent this problem, which is especially common in older buildings and those that are exposed to the weather.
Brick coloured repair mortar from Twistfix can be supplied in any of 11 different colours, all of which are traditionally used to restore and reface chipped or frost-damaged bricks and masonry: this means that the ideal match can be quickly found in the collection. Two of the most popular colour options are Old London Stock and Burnt Orange, but the range also includes a selection of different Reds, Yellows, and Browns in addition to Carbon Black and Plum.
The mortar is easy to use; simply mix the coloured mortar with water and apply it to the face of the damaged brick or stone. It is exceptionally workable which allows shapes, details and surface textures to be easily formed and to deliver professional-looking results.
Twistfix coloured brick repair mortars are lime-based and vapour-permeable, allowing both salts and moisture to migrate freely to the surface of the brick or stone masonry. This ensures strong resistance to salt expansion, halts the freeze/thaw cycle and effectively prevents any instance of spalling in the future. The mortars are guaranteed to display impeccable bonding qualities and are fully compatible with over-fired masonry units.
