Cement Mortar

Mortar is a mixture that is used to bind smaller elements like brick, stone etc to each other. It can thus be seen as a binding material that bonds bricks, stones to make a wall or for cladding purpose. Normally cement mortar is used in brickwork in present day construction though lime mortar can also be used but it requires superior craftsmanship and is hence infrequently used.

Cement mortar is a mixture of cement and sand with water. The cement is binding material but requires sand as a filler material. This homogeneous mixture in a wet state is plastic and binds two materials when it dries. Mortar is generally defined as 1:2 or 1:3 or 1:7 etc. This means that one part of cement is to be mixed with 2, 3 or 7 parts of sand.
