Masonry refers to the building of structures with individual units-usually brick, block, or stone-that are joined together with mortar. Mortar is the combination of cement, a plasticizer, sand, and water.


Masonry construction offers numerous advantages, including durability, energy efficiency (thermal mass), aesthetics, and fire protection.


Lafarge Masonry Cement Mortars provide an excellent level of performance in the functional areas of workability, strength, durability, and appearance-crucial qualities to the mason, designer, and owner.
