Mortars and concrete are the fundamental components of much of the construction industry in the U.K. Generally, a concrete is a cementitious material containing aggregates with dimensions greater than 5mm, whereas a mortar is a cementitious material containing aggregates with dimensions less than 5mm.
Mortars are used throughout the construction industry for a variety of purposes, including brick-laying, bedding of small concrete components such as ridge tiles; and for the sealing of certain types of paving.The use of lime mortars is usually limited to walling and vertical stonework applications and projects requiring 'traditional' materials.
Granolithic mortar, actually a fine-grade concrete used extensively in the construction industry where its hardwearing properties, ability to be applied thinly and its low cost, make it a popular and resilient surface. It can be used for steps, or anywhere else that a hard, smooth, concrete-like finish is required, including screeding-over existing concrete floors.
