Overview:

Restore and fortify your exposed masonry with our PHL 5.0 Lime-Based Repointing Mortar. This premium concentrate, available in convenient quart and gallon sizes, is meticulously formulated to replicate the performance, breathability, and historic characteristics of NHL 5.0 eminently hydraulic lime mortars. By blending this concentrate with locally sourced sand, you can effortlessly create a historically accurate and exceptionally durable mortar, ensuring a long-lasting repair for masonry exposed to harsh weather conditions.

Key Features:

  • Authentic PHL 5.0 Formulation: Our PHL 5.0 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 eminently hydraulic lime mortar.
  • 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.
  • Enhanced Weather Resistance: The eminently hydraulic nature of PHL 5.0 provides superior resistance to weathering, making it ideal for exposed masonry like chimneys, parapets, and facades.
  • 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 eminently hydraulic lime mortar
  • Repairing cracks, gaps, and deteriorated mortar joints in exposed masonry
  • Matching historic mortar colors and textures in challenging environments
  • Restoring the structural integrity and aesthetic appeal of heritage buildings in harsh climates

Why Choose PHL 5.0 Lime Mortar?

Unlike modern cement-based mortars, which can be too rigid and trap moisture, our PHL 5.0 lime mortar offers the strength and durability of eminently hydraulic lime while still allowing your masonry to breathe. This makes it ideal for use in exposed locations where resistance to weathering is crucial. By using a historically accurate mortar with the appropriate hydraulic properties, you ensure the longevity and beauty of your restoration work, even in challenging conditions.

Important Note: PHL 5.0 is specifically designed for masonry exposed to high weathering conditions. For masonry in sheltered locations or requiring less strength, consider our PHL 2.0 or PHL 3.5 mortars.

Mixing Instructions:

  1. Combine one part PHL 5.0 concentrate with 2.5 to 3 parts clean, sharp sand.
  1. Gradually add water until the desired consistency is achieved.
  1. Mix thoroughly until the mortar is smooth and homogenous.

Safety Precautions:

  • Always wear appropriate safety gear, including gloves and eye protection, when handling mortar.
  • Follow the manufacturer's instructions and safety guidelines for proper mixing and application.
