Custom Blending Capability:
In addition to the standard colors displayed in this brochure, Spectrum can custom blend colored mortar to meet your specifications. A sample of the hardened mortar will be produced to match the color sample you provide. These sample strips are designed in such a way that you can place them between two masonry units to simulate the mortar joint. Upon your approval, and receipt of your order, we will proceed with the productions of the product you have specified. This process is for specially blended colors; order for our standard colored products are usually shipped upon receipt of the order.
Spectrum Custom Colored Portland & Lime Mortar Mixes:
Spectrum pre-mixed Portland Cement and Hydrated Lime mortar mixes are very popular due to the exceptional waterproofing and workability that they offer. These mixes also provide excellent bonding to brick to brick and block to block, with only a very small amount of shrinkage occurring in the joints. We can also add integral waterproofing or other additives to suit your particular needs.
