Mac Mortar is a dry, factory-blended mortar for bonding concrete
block, clay brick, stone and other masonry units. Factory
blending under a strict quality control program produces a
consistent high quality mortar. Mac Mortar has good compressive
and bond strengths combined with excellent workability. The
superior boardlife reduces retempering and improves in place
physical properties: lower shrinkage, color constancy, efflorescence
control, durability and sulfate resistance. Mac Mortar is
available in a variety of packaging, color and mix designs
to meet individual job requirements.
MAC MORTAR (V.B.M.)
- is specifically designed for installing artificial stone
veneer. The extended working time improves production and
quality. The high bond strengths of Mac Mortar (V.B.M.) make
it an excellent mortar for adhering artificial stone veneers.
Also available is poly - V.B.M. that includes a dry polymer.
MAC MORTAR PLUS
includes an integral water repellent. This enhances the protection
of the building from water penetration and efflorescence.
Colors: Mac Mortar may be ordered
pre-blended with dry pigments.
Efflorescence: Mac Mortar and Mac Mortar Plus are designed to help
reduce the occurrence of efflorescence. However, due to the many
causes of efflorescence and application techniques beyond our control
R-Crete Inc. or the Manufacturer of Mac Mortar offers no guarantee
that efflorescence will not occur.

Mac Mortar meets the property specifications of A.S.T.M. C-270 Type
S (>2100 psi) and Type M (>2900 psi). The mortar consists
of Portland Cement (Type II/V), R-Mortar Aid (I.C.B.O. Report #ER
5403) and washed sand.
Application: Add Mac Mortar to clean potable water and mix to the
desired consistency. Recommended water is approximately 15-20% by
weight. Mix a minimum of 2 minutes with 5-10 minutes recommended
for best workability. Apply Masonry Units according to Uniform Building
- Do not apply when temperatures are below
or expected to fall below 40o F prior to cure.
- Proper test methods and handling of test
cylinders are important for jobsite testing.
- Do not add any admixtures without prior
consent from R- Crete Inc.
- Proper curing is required, extreme weather
conditions will affect cure and performance.
- Application in cold or damp weather will
increase the chance of efflorescence occurring.
