Gatorback® mortar boards aren’t just your typical run of the mill mortar boards. They are specially designed and engineered to be lightweight, durable, and to keep mortar workable and consistent – which can decrease mortar re-tempering time and waste.

Still not convinced? Let’s explore 4 features and benefits Gatorback® mortar boards and mortar pans have to offer!


Gatorback Mortar Boards & Pans Key Features:


Gatorback Mortar Board and Mortar PanDesign: Gatorback’s center is recessed 0.5″ from all sides to create a pan effect that keeps retempering water and mortar in the board.

Benefit: Unlike wooden mortar boards, Gatorback will not absorb water from the mortar, which will increase the board life of mortar by as much as 20 minutes! The good news is you won’t waste your time on re-tempering. This ensures that only good, workable mortar is used for higher job site production and consistent mortar properties. Excessive re-tempering of mortar will alter the integrity of mortar, especially colored mortar.

#2. Portable & Light
