It does what it says on the "tin", but that can be a big problem without proper instructions, and there are no instructions on it.

There is hardly time to mix it with water before it sets hard - in seconds. There is no guidance on the bucket. As a result, if you mix too little water, it sets hard, in a lump, the very minute you pour it; if you put in too much water, it is too runny to be useful.

Instructions Confusing.

Purchased to repair a brick pillar (in a hurry), safety issue.
Tub states "contents will lay 6 bricks" BUT mix advice says 5 to 1 for mortar, now given that between 4 and 6 (sand) to 1 cement (by volume) is what I would use with std portland then 4/5 sand to 1 of extra rapid seems reasonable.
But that gives over 30kg of mortar - for 6 Bricks ??
Then spent lot of time on web trying to ensure that this was not a premix as customer tech help closed at 16:30 and I phoned at 16:32.
Suggest Tub needs reprinting as it cannot be correct, and one would only really buy this if like me you need a rapid fix, so therefore may well be at end of working day.
That said mixed at 4/1 and seems to be a god workable mortar, I will be strength testing after 24 hrs though !

Quick work!

This product isn't cheap but it does exactly what it says on the tub. Only mx a small amount at a time as it hardens as quickly as it says. Only problem I had was actually getting into the tub I had to take a knife and cut the lid off.
