Abstract

Construction industry like any other area of economic and social life undergoes continuous alterations and improvements in order to successfully comply with the requirements of sustainable development. Consumers demand more durable, less labour and service intensive materials at a competitive price. To meet these expectations numerous new composite materials have been developed over the last couple of decades, including cementitious materials modified by superabsorbent polymers (SAP). The paper presents part of the larger research project on the performance of cementitious mortars containing two types of superabsorbent polymers (SAP) as the internal curing agent.
