|Thanks both. Really helpful!!|
Can I ask why can't you mix sbr with water and apply to the back of the paving (the people I'm buying from are saying I can just do that) rather than actually adding the cement in (he actually said that dilutes the sbr he feels).
So ie why can't i apply sbr and water rather than apply the slurry? And what would you say is better?
I would say that just using S B R with water it is only a primer coat, usually reserved for plasterers etc: once primed then you would probably use it as an admixture to bond bridge anyway.
I reckon you should go with the manufacturers instructions which are tried and tested. Are you buying from a reputable dealer, because they should be advising you to follow instructions given on the packet? Of course if you want to suck it and see, then that's your choice and you'll be back here next year asking : why are my slabs rocking
