Abstract: It is well-known that different slaked limes (calcium hydroxide) influence the plastic properties of fresh mortar differently. There is not sufficient scientific literature that describes the characteristics of calcium hydroxide that influence the plasticity in lime-based mortar systems. Therefore, the building industry increasingly uses chemical additives combined with hydraulic binders to achieve the required plasticity (workability) of a mortar. In order to exploit the positive environmental and plastic working properties of lime-based mortars investigating the mechanism of hydrated lime on the plasticity of mortar systems is necessary.
