Technical Specs:
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."

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

Composition
Mortar Break® is a polymer core geomatrix composed of polypropylene strands woven into a .80" thick mesh. It is resistant to acid and alkali present in fresh mortar mix and is non-absorbent.
