Overview:

 

Restore the timeless beauty and structural integrity of your historic masonry with our PHL 3.5 Lime-Based Repointing Mortar. This premium concentrate, available in convenient quart and gallon sizes, is meticulously formulated with no Portland cement. This mortar provides similar performance, breathability, and historic characteristics of NHL 3.5 moderately hydraulic lime mortars. By blending this concentrate with locally sourced sand, you can effortlessly create a historically accurate and durable mortar, ensuring a seamless and long-lasting repair for your cherished structures.

Key Features:

  • Authentic PHL 3.5 Formulation: Our PHL 3.5 mortar is a pozzolanic lime mortar, a historically accurate blend of high-calcium lime and reactive clays (pozzolan). It is free of Portland cement, making it ideal for repairs on historic masonry originally built with lime mortar. Our 3.5 formulation is between the 2.0 and 5.0 mortar strengths. It is ideal for moderate weathering environments. Typically choose 2.0 for very soft and fragile masonry repairs and 5.0 for high-weathering-exposure environments.,
  • Versatile Quart & Gallon Concentrates: Choose the size that suits your project needs, with each container yielding approximately 4 times its volume in ready-to-use mortar when combined with local sand.
  • Breathable for Optimal Moisture Management: The lime-rich formulation allows your masonry to "breathe," preventing moisture buildup and promoting long-term durability.
  • Five Classic Colors: Select from white, gray, light buff, dark buff, or dark red to seamlessly match the original mortar color of your historic structure.
  • Easy Mixing and Application: Simply combine the concentrate with sand and water according to the provided instructions for a smooth, workable mortar that is easy to apply.

Ideal Applications:

  • Repointing historic brick and stone masonry built with lime mortar
  • Repairing cracks, gaps, and deteriorated mortar joints in older structures
  • Matching historic mortar colors and textures
  • Restoring the structural integrity and aesthetic appeal of heritage buildings
