This paper presents an experimental method that procedures high-strength mortars to do with laying structural masonry found on the required properties and conditions of use. Literature research reviews were carried out that developed into the mix proportioning experimental process applied for mortar for laying structural masonry. Compressive strength tests, flexural strength tests, and digital microscope analysis were done to validate the methodology. The experimental program used Portland cement, hydrated lime, and natural quartzose sand. The research results mix all materials in a suitable proportion that shows in graphics with high assurance, i.e., 95%. Finally, it is possible to conclude that the process was efficient and provided high-quality masonry laying mortar about the existing environmental conditions.
