Mortar Analysis and Colour Matching Mortar

Mortar Analysis

Click here to complete the form

Mortar disaggregation analysis of lime mortars is carried out in our laboratory at The Lime Centre and costs £164.00 per sample. The results show the proportion and grading of the insoluble aggregate. This is regularly used along with information provided on the mortar function, experiential and observational findings to assist in the selection of compatible repair mortars in order that a repair mortar closely matches the original colour, texture and strength. For each analysis we require approx. 50g of mortar. Allow 10 days to receive the report. Please complete the form and send with your sample.

Mortar Analysis

Colour Matching

Colour matching your samples to our range of mortars available from The Lime Centre is free. For colour matching we require a small piece the size of a sugar lump. We will send you the closest matching mortar biscuits or alternatively choose from the colour charts. Dry powder samples can be supplied for test panels.

The colour charts below are a guide. To see the true colour please request a sample biscuit(s).
