AbstractMasonry mortars are essentially composed of binders such as lime and Portland cement combined with sand and water together with various additives. For the restoration of older masonry, there has been increased use of pointing mortar mixes using lime as the major binder, largely driven by the wish to have compatibility with the original mortar (from a historic, aesthetic or material property perspective).
