What is Type S Masonry Cement?

But what exactly is Type S Masonry cement? Who needs it, and how does it differ from other options?

This specially-blended product is a mix of Portland Cement, limestone, plasticizers, air-entraining agents, and other modifiers that help to produce a high-performance mortar. Leveraging its strength, a variety of projects can benefit from this cement, including:

  • Masonry foundations: high compressive strength is better for building up.
  • Sewers and drainage structures: a combination of water and pressure can leave a lesser cement impaired.
  • Retaining walls: hold back rocks and dirt with extra durability and reliability.
  • Patios and walkways: high foot traffic and aesthetic concerns can be taken care of with one product.

Type S Cement Uses: Gray or White Cement?

TEX-CEM Masonry Type S cement comes in gray and white varieties, each of which maintains the same level of durability and uniformity. However, depending on the job, one product might be a better choice than the other.

Gray Masonry Type S

The gray version of TEX-CEM Type S is perfect for use in a mortar or in areas that will be covered by veneer or other materials. If color uniformity is less of a concern and your project fits into the industrial realm, gray is an excellent choice.

White Masonry Type S

If the architect or client needs a brighter product or color additives are requested in the final construction, the white version of TEX-CEM Type S should be on your list.

Manufactured for more visual color uniformity, this Type S cement maintains the same strengths as its gray counterpart while presenting better as a finishing product.

Type S vs. Type N: What’s the Difference

You’re probably also thinking about Type N cement. Why does your job need Type S over Type N? Simply put, TEX-CEM Type S is specifically formulated for higher strength levels needed in load-bearing and below-grade applications.

  • Type N maintains a compressive strength of 900 psi.
  • Type S more than doubles the strength of Type N with an impressive 2100 psi.

While either color of TEX-CEM Type N cement will meet the requirements of stucco applications and exterior wall plaster, if your job requires additional heft, Type S is the obvious choice.
