Masonry Cement is specially-formulated to ensure a uniform product and color. It’s a quality masonry mortar for use in almost any brick, block, and stone masonry construction.
Masonry cements are composed of Portland cement, plasticizers, and air entraining additives, which we proportion at the cement plant under controlled conditions in a single blending operation. The result is an easier process — no need to field-proportion cement and lime — and a better outcome — a more uniform mortar.
Mortar Cement offers superior performance: durability, weather resistance and aesthetics. It is suitable for all masonry construction, especially projects that require higher flexural bond and compressive strengths.
In independent testing, mortars made with our Mortar Cement exceeded the flexural bond strengths required in:
- ASTM C 1329 Standard Specification for Mortar Cement
- International Building Code Standard 2103.7 Mortar
- CSA-A3002 Masonry and Mortar Cement.
They also achieved flexural bond and compressive strengths that meet all seismic zone requirements — enhancing structural stability and maintaining the margin of safety.
