  • Can you please clarify what is meant by "2.25 parts powder to 1 part water by volume" when preparing smaller batches?

    For smaller batches, follow the "2.25 parts powder to 1 part water by volume" ratio.

    This means that for every 2.25 units of powdered mortar adhesive, you'll need 1 unit of water. Use a measuring cup or suitable tools to accurately measure the ingredients based on the determined ratio.

    For example, if you want to use 2.25 cups of powdered mortar adhesive, you should mix it with 1 cup of water.

  • So what is 2.25 parts with a quart of water mean. I understand the court but I understand what 2.25 parts of a 40 pound bag is? Thank you.
