To prepare mortar for EPS (Expanded Polystyrene) decorative molding on an exterior wall, you can follow these general steps:

1. Gather Materials: Collect the necessary materials, including cement, sand, water, and any additives or admixtures recommended by the manufacturer or specific to your project requirements.

2. Mix the Mortar: Start by pouring a portion of clean water into a mixing container or a mortar mixer. Gradually add the cement and sand, following the recommended proportions specified by the manufacturer or as per your project requirements. Typically, a common ratio for mortar is 1 part cement to 3 parts sand, but it can vary depending on the specific application and desired strength.

3. Additives or Admixtures: If you’re using any additives or admixtures, such as plasticizers or bonding agents, add them according to the manufacturer’s instructions. These additives can enhance the workability, bonding, and durability of the mortar.

4. Mix Thoroughly: Mix the ingredients together using a mixing paddle or a mortar mixer until you achieve a consistent, lump-free mixture. Ensure that all the dry ingredients are uniformly incorporated with the water. The mortar should have a workable consistency that allows it to hold its shape but still be spreadable.

5. Resting Time: Let the mixed mortar rest for a few minutes to allow the water to fully hydrate the cement. During this resting period, the mortar may become slightly thicker.

6. Re-Mix (Optional): After the resting time, give the mortar a brief remix to maintain its consistency. Avoid adding additional water at this stage unless necessary, as it may compromise the mortar’s strength and adhesion.

It’s important to note that the specific mixing instructions and proportions can vary depending on the manufacturer’s recommendations and the application requirements of your EPS decorative molding by foam coating machine. Always refer to the manufacturer’s guidelines and follow any specific instructions provided with the decorative molding or mortar products you are using.

Additionally, it is advisable to consult a professional or refer to detailed installation guides for EPS decorative molding to ensure proper installation techniques and compatibility with the specific mortar system.
