Ever find yourself at B&Q, Wickes or Travis Perkins scratching your head when it comes to which Blue Circle Cement product to use? Come on, we’ve all been there before.

Mastercrete is versatile, but Blue Circle Cement products’ resident technical expert, Dr Bill Price, believes its best use is as a masonry mortar.

Is it the answer to your prayers? I mean, it could be. But product-wise, it’s very sharp.


Mastercrete is primarily designed for use in masonry mortars (bricks or blocks) and for external rendering,” Dr Price said.

“Its key benefits are its good workability (ease of spreading) and cohesiveness (ability to hang onto the mixing water).

“It also produces a good smooth surface finish.”
