SAKRETE Stone Veneer Mortar is a high-performance, polymer-modified mortar designed to set and grout natural and artificial stone. The advantages in using a pre-mixed mortar are a reduction of waste materials on site, a convenient and quality mix and consistent excellence. The risks of on-site mixing such as inaccurate proportional blending of sand and masonry cement are eliminated.
