Construction and Use
The mortar rake disk is a wide version of a diamond cutting disk for an angle grinder. We recommend using a disk as it is far easier than the rotary file types of mortar rake.
This one is 7mm wide and will cut an 8mm wide slot. The resulting 8mm wide slot is ideal to hold 10mm backer rod which reduces sealant usage and keeps it off the substrate. This 8mm wide groove will comfortably accommodate 0.5 to 1mm of movement when filled with flexible sealant.
That 8mm slot is ideal to hold 10mm backer rod whilst repairing cracks in rendered walls to hold 10mm backer rod firmly in position.
This product can be purchased on it’s own, or as part of our Render Crack Repair Kit. This kit puts all of the components required to permanently fix your cracked rendered wall in one place, at a discount.
You should always wear eye, ear and dust protection when using an angle grinder. Inspect disks for any signs of damage before use. Replace damaged disks following inspection and prior to use.
Rated to over 13,000 RPM this mortar rake disk is suitable for use in all domestic 4.5 inch angle grinders. As such the mortar rake disk should present no additional hazards over any other angle grinder disk.
