The Opti-Mix Mortar Plasticiser by Everbuild is an excellent, high-quality product that is a tradesperson must-have in their arsenal. It's super economical, with up to 25 litres of standard mortar plasticiser equivalent to 1 Litre of Opti-Mix. It's crafted into a bottle equipped with a gauge, allowing easy-to-use mixing and enabling novice D.I.Yers to easily access and use this product.
Mixing this product is simple; you must follow a ratio of 1:25. An example is 100ml of Opti-Mix: 2.5L Mortar. Add the Opti-Mix to a bucket of water and mix well; you should use at most 10L of water at a time. Dry mix all other ingredients and add sufficient quantities of the water/opti-mix solution until you've achieved the desired consistency. Never add the plasticiser to the mix by itself; always let down into a portion of gauging water.
