[Mason using lime mortar with historic brick] What is Masonry Cement?

Masonry cement is a mixture of Portland cement, ground limestone and air entrainment (in the form of soap). This mixture creates a mortar with properties that can actually damage historic brick.

Masonry cement is hard and inflexible.  Because the bricks on historic homes are softer than modern cement, bricks may be damaged as the wall moves and shifts.  It traps moisture (is vapor impermeable) which can cause the face of the brick to explode. It also has a lower bond strength, which results in a poorer bond to the brick.
Why Use Lime Mortar with Historic Brick?

Lime mortar is made of burned limestone, rather than ground limestone. This burning process is what gives lime mortar the properties that are required for historic masonry restoration. Lime mortar has low compression strength and high flexibility. It absorbs movement and protects the bricks from [Historic masonry] the effects of settling and expansion and contraction.

Lime mortar is vapor permeable making it capable of relieving moisture which has been absorbed by the bricks. Lime particles are much smaller than Portland cement particles, resulting in greater bond strength to masonry units.  It does not require air entrainment, so it adheres better and remains more leak resistant. It
is also self-healing; moisture from rain causes small cracks to knit back together. Lime mortar absorbs more water than masonry cement, which will help keep the inside of your building dry.
