Mortar is the element that is used to keep all the bricks joint together and provides structural capacity to any Brick and Mortar wall. Mortar is essentially composed of a mix of some kind of variation of cement and sand. Mortar is not quite as strong as concrete, therefore it is used as a ‘glue’ to bind bricks or concrete blocks together, rather than as a sole building material.
What is Mortar Mix?
Mortar Mix is most typically sold in bags, advertised as Ready Mortar Mix, which are ready to use straight away when simply poured from the bag. This type of Ready Mortar Mix is simpler to use, as it does not require any additional steps and can be used immediately, as opposed to some other Mortar Mix which may require extra steps. On our website we have a variety of Ready Mortar Mix for you to buy when building your Brick and Mortar wall.
Choosing your Mortar Mix
There are a lot of different Mortar Mix variations for sale, so it is essential that you buy the right one, as each Ready Mortar Mix will fulfil a different purpose. If you choose the wrong Ready Mortar Mix for your structure then this could be problematic, as choosing the wrong Mortar Mix may result in an unstable, unsafe Brick and Mortar wall, as it will not hold the weight correctly or alternatively the bricks will not be able to adhere correctly, causing a lot of structural problems. Mortar Mix is designed so that each type of mix will have different properties, so it is of great importance that you are well informed when choosing which Mortar Mix you should buy for building your Brick and Mortar wall.
