· ALLOWS MOISTURE IN THE CAVITY TO FLOW DOWN THROUGH THE GEOMATRIX MORTAR BREAK AND OUT THE WEEP HOLES.

· EASY AND ECONOMICAL TO INSTALL(UP TO 50% LABOR SAVINGS OVER CONVETIONAL METHODS.)

Basic Use:

For use at all flashing locations, such as cavity, composite, single wythe and veneer applications (see detail).

The polymer core geomatrix design allows moisture to seep down through any mortar drippings and weep out of the wall through the weep holes.

Mortar Break, used with properly installed flashing and weep holes along with good mortar applying techniques, will ensure the performance of a well-designed masonry wall.

Composition:
Mortar Break is a polymer core geomatrix composed of nylon strands woven into a .875” thick mesh. It is resistant to acid and alkali present in fresh mortar mix and is non-absorbent.

Installation:
Install Mortar Break by placing the strips horizontally at all flashing locations. Place diagonally on top of the flashing to ensure that the mortar droppings are broken up and deflected away from the weep holes (see detail). Mechanical attachment is not required.


Note:
Any mortar deflection device is only as good as the flashing with which it is installed. The Brick Institute of America states in its technical note #21: “It is suggested that only superior materials be selected for flashing, as its replacement in the event of failure will be exceedingly expensive.”

Size:
10” x 50’ – 0” roll
