Mortar & Grout Best Practices: Materials, Processes & Inspections
Discipline: Codes & Standards
Mortar and grout perform critical roles in masonry assemblies. Mortar bonds units together, accommodates unevenness in units to ensure plumb construction and plays a significant role in weather protection and moisture resistance. Grout is used to bond units, mortar and reinforcement into a single composite assemblage. The choices that are made regarding these materials and the techniques for proper installation are very important for the success of masonry assemblies. This presentation will review constituent materials for mortar and grout, ASTM standards and specifications and proper testing and inspection tasks, as well as code requirements and best practices for use installation of mortars and grouts.
