Frequently Asked Rugby Cement Questions
What Are Some Mortar Mix Essentials?
Mortar is made by mixing cement, lime and sand. The proportions of these ingredients vary depending on the type of mortar you're making, but the basic ratio is one part cement to three parts sand.
To mix, you'll need:
- Mixing area: wheelbarrow, plastic tub, mixing board
- Builder's shovel/spade
- Tarpaulin sheet
- Bristle brush
- Appropriate PPE: a respiratory mask, goggles and gloves
What Is The Difference Between Lime Mortar & Cement Mortar?
- A lime mortar tends to be whiter in colour, whilst a greyer shade would suggest it's most likely Portland cement
- Unlike cement mortar, lime mortar is permeable and allows vapour to pass through - a healthier option for humidity regulation
- Lime sets at a much slower rate than cement mortar, making it far more workable
- Cement also tends to be more brittle and more likely to crack
