Historic Mortar Analysis

AMR Labs is an independent testing lab for mortar analysis and testing of historic mortars and custom mortar color matching. Our analysis of the mortar mix or cement identifies the color and graded size particles of the sand, proportions of mortar mix ratio, and the ratio of mix to sand. These mortar specifications are used in matching mortar. Mortar matching analyzes and matches the pigment if needed to finish matching mortar color after the type of mortar is determined through mortar analysis. From the mortar analysis report and the color matching, we can produce bags of mortar for repointing that match the original mortar type, color, and sand.
