Masonry Mortar Cement | Construction Materials - CEMEX USA
Masonry cement is ideal for achieving workable mixtures with maximum adhesion. Specifically, a Portland cement, this widely used mixture combines sand and other finely ground materials. To ensure a superior product and consistency, composites made in our plants are rendered under strictly controlled conditions.
A big advantage of cement mortar is its practical and efficient production: only water and fine aggregate are needed to obtain high-quality, ready-made adhesives.
Known for its durability, masonry cement has shown high resistance to rainwater penetration, extending the life of construction, in addition to reducing heat loss and optimizing structural comfort.
To meet the needs of our customers, CEMEX offers cement mortar with compressive strength at 7 and 28 days. It’s important to note that while cement mortar enhances overall construction, it should not be used as structural concrete.
Why masonry cement?
Masonry cement is an innovative development of CEMEX that puts a ready-to-use mixture in your hands right when you need it. Produced in our plants with consistency and reliability, our product complies with official regulations.
We are equipped with specialized technology designed to meet the specific needs of our customers, so the quality and color standard is guaranteed throughout all our productions.
A naturally flexible mixture, masonry cement is compatible with all conventional construction materials, such as sands, gravel, marble, quarry, among many others. It also blends well with pigments and additives, provided they are used with the care and dosages recommended by their manufacturers.
This product is specially designed to give rise to mixtures of excellent workability, strong cohesiveness, and total adhesion. The benefits of masonry cement include excellent performance, optimum setting, durability and a high development of resistance to the third day. When compared to other products, cement mortar offers an unmatched level of durability, allowing for de-molding or de-stemming in less time.
CEMEX’s masonry cement is finely crafted at every step, to ensure maximum results quality water is an essential component of your premium mixture.

Uses of Masonry Cement
Masonry cement has a wide range of applications. We recommend its use in flat work, plaster, and a range of other surface adhesions, such as cement blocks, partitions, structural panels, polystyrene panels or cement panels It‘s an ideal product for floors, pavements, sidewalks, and high strength coatings. Extending beyond structural support, cement mortar is also a convenient adhesive for gluing together tiles and mosaics and has even been approved for use in seismic zones.
