Description

Phoenix Cement SUPERMORTAR meets all requirements of the current ASTM Specification C 91 and UBC Standard 21-11 and IBC 2103.7 for Type S masonry cement. In addition, SUPERMORTAR meets the requirements of UBC Standard 25-1 for Plastic Cement.

SUPERMORTAR is the original masonry cement formulation created by Phoenix Cement Company. Since its inception in 1962, the SUPERMORTAR trade name has become synonymous with quality and consistency in the masonry industry.

Strength:

Laboratory prepared specimens made with SUPERMORTAR produce compressive strengths well in excess of those required by ASTM C 270 for masonry mortar.

Workability and Board Life:

Special additions to the formulation give SUPERMORTAR the high plasticity and water retention required in the hot, dry southwestern climate.
Extended board-life reduces the need for retempering and provides superior bond to masonry units.

Uniformity:

With all ingredients carefully premixed at the plant, SUPERMORTAR is consistent in strength, workability and color. This property provides users with the highest reliability in strength, workability, water retention, and consistent architectural performance.

Economy:

Less waste and fewer jobsite additions using SUPERMORTAR result in increased production, thereby increased profits.
