Lafarge Masonry Cement is specially formulated to ensure a uniform product and color to produce quality masonry mortar for use in brick, block, and stone masonry construction. Lafarge Canada Inc. manufactures Types N and S masonry and mortar cements. Lafarge masonry cement eliminates the need to field proportion materials. A more uniform mortar can be obtained when only one blending operation is involved.

 

Masonry Cement

Masonry cements are composed of portland cement, plasticizers, and air entraining additives. These components are proportioned at the cement plant under controlled conditions to assure uniformity of performance.

Mortar Cement

Lafarge Mortar Cement is suitable for all masonry construction, especially projects that require higher flexural bond and compressive strengths. Superior performance extends to such key areas as durability, weather resistance and aesthetics.

In independent testing, mortars made with Lafarge Mortar Cement exceeded the flexural bond strengths required in: ASTM C 1329 Standard Specification for Mortar Cement; International Building Code Standard 2103.7 Mortar and 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.
