Analysis of suitability of mortar used for reconstruction

Assessment of suitability of mortar intended for reconstruction based on their characteristics, namely basic, hygric and mechanical parameters, chemical analysis and frost resistance, is presented in this paper. Properties of the load bearing structure as well as natural factors were also taken into account in assessing the suitability of the used mortars. Comparative measurements with original historic plaster are done as well. On the basis of the experiments performed, it can be concluded that not only mortar properties but also environment conditions and technology of application as well as load bearing structure characteristics have a great importance to the service life of the repaired parts of historical buildings.
