COLORED MORTAR MADE RIGHT! This webinar provides you with an interesting and interactive demonstration on the future of masonry mortar. Attendees will witness hands-on demonstrations illustrating the factors and process to ensure high quality, uniform factory produced mortar in comparison to the challenges and inconsistencies associated with traditional site-proportioned & mixed colored mortar. Now architects and specifiers can be assured that the mortar they specify is manufactured to exceed all applicable ASTM standards, and the exact same from project start to finish!
- Identify what makes good, uniform-colored mortar.
- Discuss mason’s sand and how “sand bulking” impacts mortar consistency.
- List the steps involved in selecting and specifying pre-blended mortars engineered to match the properties of the specified masonry unit.
- Explain the importance of mortar bond strength vs. compressive strength.
