In a clean container or mixer, add a 50 pound bag of Glass Block Mortar to approximately three quarts of water and mix to a stiff, lump-free consistency.
Since glass block have no absorption, add as little water as possible to obtain a consistency that is stiffer than an ordinary mortar mix. Allow mixture to soak for 5-10 minutes, remix then use. As with any Portland cement based material, mixing liquid should be kept to a minimum to avoid decreasing strength and adhesive properties.
Set glass block in a full bed of Glass Block Mortar as per the glass block manufacture’s recommendations.
Joints may be tooled after initial set. Glass blocks may then be washed using a sponge and clean water to remove any excess mortar and film.
