Pre-Blended Mortar FAQs

Yes – Amerimix mortar is also available in 3,000 lb. bulk bags. Note that this weight can vary by region.

There are many different types of mortar joints, but the main ones you would encounter on a typical residential home are flush, raked, and concave (aka jointed).

A flush finish is when the masonry joint is brought flush with the brick or masonry unit and is generally used if the masonry is to be painted to give walls a more uniform look.

A concave finish is the most common mortar joint as it produces the best weather protection.

Raked joints are another finish where the mortar joint is recessed about 3/8th of an inch having each brick stand out more compared to the uniformity of a flush or concave finish.

A Type M or Type S mortar is recommended for below grade applications.
The Amerimix 400 Series (portland cement, lime and sand) and Amerimix 500 Series (masonry cement and sand) are both available in Types M & S.

There are no additives that will prevent mortar from freezing before the final set occurs. The use of hot water, not exceeding 105°F, will help with the hydration process, but winter measures such as covering the wall, tenting and heating the area, etc. need to be followed.

Amerimix mortar follows ASTM C270 with 28-day curing guidelines for strength. The curing process varies due to temperatures, availability of moisture in the mix, exposure to direct sunlight verses shade, etc.

Typical mortar joints are 3/8” thick for common joints including round, raked and flush.
