SPEC MIX® Set Delayed Masonry Mortar is a dry preblended set-delayed mortar mix using either a portland cement and hydrated lime formulation, a masonry cement formulation or mortar cement formulation, depending on specific building codes.

There is a version acceptable for all types of masonry construction, above or below grade.
