Mortar mix ratio i.e. proportioning of cement sand in mortar provides consistency in the performance and appearance of masonry construction. Proper proportioning of mortar ingredients helps in having the following advantages:

  • Uniformity of strength
  • Uniform workability
  • Uniform color
  • Uniformity of proportions and yields

Mainly the proportioning of the cement and sand for mortar is conducted by volume proportioning compared to weight proportion.
