More C Four types of mortar are covered in each of two alternative specifications: 1 proportion specifications and 2 property specifications. The property specification applies to mortar mixed to a specific flow in the laboratory. When neither proportion nor property specifications are specified, the proportion specifications shall govern, unless data are presented to and accepted by the specifier to show that mortar meets the requirements of the property specifications.

MORTARS FOR CONCRETE MASONRY
Mortar serves many important functions: it bonds units together into an integral structural assembly, seals joints against penetration by air and moisture, accommodates small movements within a wall, accommodates slight differences between unit sizes, and bonds to joint reinforcement, ties and anchors so that all elements perform as an assembly. In addition, Type N masonry cement can be combined with portland cement or blended hydraulic cement to produce Type S or M mortars. Quicklime must be slaked combined chemically with water prior to use. The resultant lime putty must be stored and allowed to hydrate for at least 24 hours before use. Consequently, quicklime is rarely used in mortar.
