The thick bed mortar will also be useful in projects where conventional cement sand mortar is used. Earlier new products introduced in the range like Polymer Modified Plaster (for the Reserve Bank of India project), Ramco Block Fix, New General Purpose Plaster have been successful, and hence the company is confident that the new Ramco Thick Bed Mortar will also be received well by the customers.
