Perfect for forming joints between timber windows and masonry
Our traditional sand mastic is supplied in two parts - traditional sand and oil-driers. Traditional sand mastic is used to form joints between door frames and timber windows and masonry or rendered masonry, it has been used for 200+ years. While our sand mastic hardens slowly, it remains sufficiently flexible for the purpose. It adheres strongly to most surfaces.
How traditional sand mastic is made
Traditional sand mastic is made by roasting sand in a kiln or on a hot plate. It was originally mixed with lead based driers, chalk and oils; however, over the years alternative natural driers have replaced the lead products.
Please be aware that mastic should not be over painted.
