Fiberglass surface bonding is a new block construction techinque. It involves dry stacking a concrete block wall without mortar in the joints between the block and, after the wall is erected, troweling a very thin coating of a cement-lime mixture reinforced with alkali resistant glass fibers on both sides of the wall. . .The data presented indicates the surface bonded wall results in improved physical properties and reduced installed cost.
