Abstract: Two Si-based admixtures (an emulsion of n-octyl triethoxy silane and encapsulated silicone resin) were used as integral water repellents in mortar. The setting and early age hardening properties of CEM I mortar (water-to-cement ratio of 0.5) was assessed by means of penetration resistance tests, ultrasonic pulse velocity tests and compressive strength tests coupled to electrical conductivity tests campaign. Microcapsules have less influence on the mortar setting and early age hardening, while giving very good waterproofing to the mortar. The emulsion induces a significant delay in setting and a large decrease in mechanical properties. Several measurements are used to define the initial and final setting time and compared.
