Abstract: The article deals with question of determination of water resistance vapour coefficient µ of lime mortar, lime cement mortar modified or non-modified by addition of water repellent on calcium stearate base. Three sets of mortars were tested and the influence of quantity of the water repellent on coefficient µ was observed. On the base of acquired results the expected growth of µ with added water repellent was not approved. This fact can be connected with bulk density of samples after addition of the agent.
