Remove the brickwork bed joint using a wall chaser or dust extracted angle grinder to a depth of 40mm above the first brick sitting on top of the window frame, extend the cut 500mm either side of the opening,
Repeat the process to the brickwork joint a minimum of 4 courses above the window opening and a maximum of 6 courses above the opening.
Remove all dust from the slots and wet the joint down with water or Strucsol Joint primer.
Remove the ultra bar from the packaging and cut to length, bend a 90 degree angle of 50mm length on each end of the wire to assist in locating the wire into the slots.
Repeat the process so you now have 2 wires located in each slot, both wires need to fit below the surface of the brickwork and allow sufficient space for repointing.
Remove the wires from 1 end of the wall.
Work along the wall from the fixed end of the wires creating a composite of:
Resin 10mm bead wire resin 10 mm wire resin 10mm bead working from the back of the prepared slot.
The final bead of resin should be ironed into the slot using the finger trowel. ensure the finished composite is recessed 10mm below the surface.
Use a wire wedge at 1.0 m spacings to hold the wire into position until the composite has set ( 10 to 20 Mins).
Fit the resin cement cartridge into the gun, fit the nozzle , pump the gun and discard the first 45ml of resin onto a piece of paper, ensuring you see the resin change colour, this show the resin and hardened have been correctly mixed in the static mixer nozzle., you now have around 15 mins working time before the resin in the nozzle sets, if this happens remove the nozzle and fit a new mixer nozzle
