Workrite Colored Mortar

Beginning March 2017, Frederick Block, Brick & Stone will transition from Essroc’s Flamingo colored mortar to Workrite’s colored mortar. This change will only effect colored mortar, NOT regular gray Type N, gray Type S, or cement.

This change was prompted by Essroc moving their Flamingo colored mortar manufacturing operation from Speed, Indiana to Atlanta, Georgia. In the past, when colored mortar manufacturing facilities have moved, there is an inherent color variation to the product.

Frederick Block, Brick & Stone has determined that Workrite colored mortar is equal to the existing Essroc Flamingo colors. Workrite had been subcontracted to make the Essroc Flamingo colors, meaning that their product was essentially the same mix design, but bagged as Essroc. It is probable that in the past our customers have received Workrite produced color mortar, in an Essroc bag, without realizing it.

Frederick Block will be able to cross-reference the original Essroc Flamingo colors to the new Workrite colors for you.

If you have any questions about this change, please contact your sales representative or our office.
