Variety – Lehigh Cement Company offers a wide spectrum of colors.
Masonry Cement - Masonry cements are an excellent choice for home builders and architects looking for mortar colors for new construction or to match existing structures. All flamingo masonry cements conform to ASTM C-91 for masonry cement. Masonry Cement has superior workability and better color consistency on the wall.
Portland & Lime Blend - For architects and contractors who prefer the properties of straight Portland cement and lime, flamingo Portland Cement & Lime Blend offers the convenience of Type I portland cement meeting ASTM C-150, Type S hydrated lime conforming to ASTM C-207 and pigments meeting ASTM C-979 blended together in one bag.
Mortar Cement - Our mortar cements are an excellent choice for flexural bond strength durability since they meet and exceed ASTM C-1329. This means that load bearing masonry walls will be more effective in flexural strength where seismic activity is figured into the building design.
