German term or phrase: Der Moertel scharf ueber Korn aufziehen
To fill cavities after a primer and sealing coats are applied onto a concrete surface, a scratch coat is applied. This scractch coat is NOT gritted (Korn) as opposed to the other underlying coats.

A bed mortar is then applied to the fresh scatch coat. Then the sentence above comes up. ??

Aufziehen eine Strassendecke is 'to finish'.

English translation:Carefully spread the mortar over the gritted surface.
Explanation:
I am not sure on this one, but since aufziehen has to do with finishing the surface and scharf signifies doing something closely or precisely, this translation may work.
