Masonry cement is a specially blended cement that is combined with sand and water in a specified ratio to create a solid binding mortar. This mortar stands out for the strength it offers, toughness, aesthetics, and resistance to deterioration from chemicals and the environment. It is frequently used in stonework, block, and brick masonry for mortar and stucco work, but is not thought to be strong enough for concrete masonry.

Masonry cements were initially developed as quicker, more dependable substitutes for on-site preparations of Portland cement and hydrated lime. They consist of a mixture of Portland cement clinker, hydraulic lime or limestone filler, and different additives. In cement manufacturers, this blend is created under strictly controlled circumstances.

Masonry cement is divided into three primary categories by the ASTM: Type N, Type S, and Type M. For the preparation of general-purpose mortars that can be utilized in the building of non-load bearing and exterior veneer walls, type N masonry cement is used. Mortars for load-bearing constructions, as well as grade level and pavement masonry, use Type S and Type M masonry cement.
