Stone Veneer Mortars
SPEC MIX® Stone Veneer Polymer Modified Mortar is a blend of dry cementitious materials and masonry sand specifically designed to provide superior bond for precast, lightweight masonry veneer units to base surfaces. The final wall system will produce a non-load bearing, aesthetically pleasing exterior veneer or interior finish on concrete or masonry walls, stud walls or metal buildings. It is formulated to produce a cohesive material with consistent workability and optimal bond strength.
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 Polymer Modified Mortar and Stone Veneer Joint Grout products are specifically formulated and tested to ensure mortar to unit compatibility as well as good workability.
Our 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.
SPEC MIX® Stone Veneer Mortar and is available in both a Standard (SSVM) and our Polymer modified version for natural stone (PMSVM) in 80 lb bags, 42 or 30 bags per pallet for job-site mixing, or in reusable 3,000 lb bulk bags for use with the various patented silo systems by SPEC MIX®
Product yield information can vary with each application but as a general rule the following guide can be used. As with all applications a sample mock-up should be tested to ensure the desired results on the project.
