Hi Bandy

thank you for your guidance

There are sometimes three versions in offer, NHL 2, 3.5, and 5

Generally, 3.5 is the one for pointing.  5 is for a much harder water resistant and quicker (but not quick) setting finish, 2 for if you were withing with, for example,  very soft bricks.

My local builders merchant seems to be oblivious to the NHL rating, though it is written across the sack.
