® Lime Mortar and Color-Matching System

NO Portland Cement is present in deGruchy’s Ecologic™ mortars yet the stock material will still reach the required 750 psi required for a type N mortar while maintaining the high permeability required for repointing and repair to historic structures originally built with lime mortars.

Ecologic™ Mortars can be used for sustainable applications in stucco, interior plaster, laying up of masonry units, stonework and as historic building repointing mortars.
