THE PROPERTIES

Mortar is a building material, which consists of a binding agent  (e.g. lime or cement), aggregate with a grain size maximum 4 mm, and sometimes additives and admixtures, as well as added water. It hardens by means of a chemical reaction of the binding agent. Available in various compressive strengths and with thermal-insulating properties, they can be used individually.

A key variable for composition is the water/solids value. Mortar is primarily used to connect bricks and to plaster walls and ceilings. It can be produced either at the factory or at the construction site.
