Lafarge "Cements For Masonry” Manual Now Available Online


Reston, VA

Lafarge North America Inc.


New virtual reference tool provides users with quick and easy access to in-depth, up-to-date technical information on product specification and use.


To provide rapid, around-the-clock access to the latest information on masonry and mortar cements, Lafarge has transitioned its "Cements for Masonry" manual to the Lafarge web site where it resides exclusively as an easy-to-use virtual flipbook. The new e-manual represents an innovative change from the previous three-ring binder version and supports Lafarge's commitment to sustainability by eliminating the use of paper.


 Serving as a key reference resource for many years, the Lafarge Cements for Masonry manual features over 200 pages of technical information and application guidelines on masonry mortars and their specifications. In addition to accessing the e-manual's content on a broad array of masonry cement products, architects, engineers, mason contractors, and other professionals can quickly and efficiently find letters of certification, specification details, and tutorials on application best practices, materials, testing methods, and more.
