Pre-Blended Mortar FAQs

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

No. A fire-rated mortar is required for all fireplace applications.

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.

Often, the terms “cement,” “concrete” and “mortar” are used almost interchangeably. The terms refer to materials that have three different purposes:

Cement: The binding element in both concrete and mortar.

Concrete: A product composed of cement, sand and gravel or other coarse aggregate. When water is mixed in with this product, it activates the cement, which is the element responsible for binding the mix together to form one solid object.

Mortar: A product composed of masonry cement (or portland cement and lime) and mason sand. When water is mixed in with this product, the cement is activated. Whereas concrete can stand alone, mortar is used to hold together bricks, stones or other building materials.

Concrete and mortar are ubiquitous materials in construction, but with different purposes. Both contain portland cement, water and aggregate, but the mixes for each reflect the desired characteristics.

Mortar is used to bond masonry units together. It doesn’t need the strength of concrete; however, it needs good bonding characteristics. Mortars with a high water-cement ratio bond best. This is the opposite of concrete, where concrete mix is formulated for strength and lower water content makes it stronger and more effective for its purpose. Additives or plasticizers may be added to mortar mixes to increase their flexibility.

Concrete is categorized into two primary categories, plain concrete, and structural concrete. Plain concrete is any structure supported by the ground, such as walkways, driveways, slabs, and spread footings to support masonry walls. Plain concrete is often reinforced with steel to increase its tensile strength against temperature fluctuations that threaten its structural integrity.

Structural concrete is any structural piece made of concrete that has points of support and requires the capacity to hold loads, such as concrete beams, suspended concrete slabs, or concrete pilings.

Yes. Amerimix AMX 480 is suitable as both a mortar and grout material.
