Abstract

The paper is focused on the assessment of laser-treated cementitious surfaces. It forms part of the larger study on laser cleaning process and its effect on modification of geometrical microstructure of cementitious composites. The great variation in absorptivity of highly developed surfaces of cementitious materials results in substantial differences in their responses to laser irradiation. Even though lasers can be successfully used to remove dirt from mortar surfaces, there are always some residual surface alterations associated with the removal of mortar, formation of cracks and glazing (melted mortar).
