Is this the best product for installing/mortaring in a PREBUILT glass-block window?

I'm not talking about between each individual block. I have a 36x14 glass block sheet that I need to mortar into a rough opening with cement all around. Is this workable? The best solution? Thanks.

Can this mortar be used to fill in a 4-inch gap between a bath vanity and a ceramic tile wall? will the mortar accept paint? We are replacing an old 64-inch cabinet with a 60-inch standard vanity. Everything works except the gap. See photo of old vanity in bathroom.
Asked by: Redfox
I wouldn't use it for that, the water in the mortar may damage the new Vanity. Why can't you just put in a wood filler strip to close the gap that you could paint?

I understand about using refactor mortar for the fire brick.
Asked by: jim
Yes, QUIKRETE® Mason Mix Type S may be used for laying cement blocks for an outdoor fireplace. As you mentioned, QUIKRETE® Mason Mix Type S cannot be used in the firebox of the fireplace.

80 lb. Type S Mason Mix is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from journyman bricklayer for 42 yrs, type S in the green bag or commerical grade goes easily through a grout bag for tuck pointing. Is also the equal to any mixes a bricklayer would use on new construction fireplace or basement. Im a bricklayer for 42 years and I use this brand for smaller jobs where I don't want to bring out the mixer and the sand pile. Can be mixed in a wheel barrel or if you put 3 1/2 inches of water(keep extra water available) in the bottom of a bucket and mix 1- 80 lb bag with a powerful drill. you will have a close mix, continue to add water as need if to tight. when using the grout bag do not make the mix to watery because the richness of this mix will make it flow easily with proper twisting and squeezing. fill areas from the inside out till it sets a bit then cut it off and slick the joint or broom stick the joint for less shine. this will give a neat job with no mortar on the face of the brick...

If you add lime it will be more sticky. Also you need to mix the entire bag for the product to work correctly as settlement or separation of the mix can occur.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The key is in the mixing... The key to any good mud is in the mixing. You'll want to mix it to the consistency of butter for it to stick properly. You'll need a 5 gallon bucket, 1/2" heavy duty drill, paddle mixer to attach to the drill and water. Fill the 5 gallon bucket about 1/4 full. Open the end of the mason mix bag by cutting it all the way open using a utility knife. Fill the bucket about 1/2 full. Take the drill and start to whip it up. Keep adding mason mix and water until you have the bucket about 2/3 full and you have mixed the mortar for at least 5 minutes and it is starting to look like butter. Have a 3/4"x2'x2' piece of plywood ready on a stand and dump the mortar on it and you are ready to go. You'll need a trowel also. Good luck.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from they changed the mix design Im Mason contractor , I used to use this all the time however the last year i have noticed the mortar no longer sticks the way it used to . when we were at a regular masonry supply yard a rep from this company was there and said the design is lacking lime, so i added a little helped but also the cement content seems a little out to as the strength isnt what it was either , so if you want to work with mortar that doesn't stick to the head joints of blocks ..this will defiantly work ..If you want weak mortar this is the perfect product.. ..and home depot charges more for it now then the brick yards.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Difficult to work with I bought this to rebuild the top part of a brick chimney. I found that the mortar did not stick to the bricks and was very stiff. There seemed to be a low proportion of cement and the sand was very coarse making it very difficult to adjust the bricks into the exact position. In the end I decided to dismantle my work - some bricks came off easily, but others actually had stuck well and it took me a while to remove them. I then rebuilt it again using a different pre-mixed mortar - that was better and although it was still not great I was able to work with it. Things are sturdy and I am confident that the brickwork will hold up. Next time I do some bricklaying I am going to buy myself some bags of cement, lime and sand and mix my own up so I know what I am getting.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hardly Better Than Sticks and Mud This product has been usable for small block jobs in the past. However Quickcrete has gone cheap and is now using manufactured sand (rock dust from quarry washed stone)like their yellow bag mix. The sand that used to be in this mix was crushed quartz ( with sugar sand fines) aggravating but usable if you added a shovel of type s mortar to each bag. Buy a 2.5# hammer to beat this stuff down to keep a 3/8 joint. The other pro reviews on this site are suspect(payed reviewers or company employees) as any "Pro" would walk off the job if they were told to use this mix. Head joints fall out because of low tack. You will have to constantly chop the mortar on the board to keep it workable. Do not even attempt to lay brick with this product. I should have known the "New Lower Price" was marketing spin for Inferior Product replacing the one you have been using.
