When installing all masonry units, especially precast and natural stone units for masonry veneer systems, it is imperative that the mortar is designed to match the properties of the stone for optimal shear bond strength and durability. SPEC MIX® Stone Veneer Mortar and Stone Veneer Joint Grout products are specifically formulated and tested to ensure mortar to unit compatibility as well as good workability.
Stone Veneer Mortar for "scratch & base coat" and "joint grout" applications are computer batched and preblended products that bond precast, lightweight masonry veneer units to solid base surfaces such as in-place masonry, concrete or galvanized, expanded metal lath. Available in natural gray or colored, SPEC MIX® Stone Veneer Mortar is manufactured dry to eliminate the inconsistencies associated with field-proportioned mortars. Only the addition of water is needed to produce a mortar that provides total quality control, consistency and optimal bond strength in every batch.
