Abstract
 
Efflorescence and color variation are two common phenomena of cement-based color mortars. This paper examines how inorganic binder and polymer powder interact to reduce efflorescence and create color consistency for cement-based color mortar.
 
The results reveal a new generation of color mortar which is based on a new redispersible polymer powder (ELOTEX® BRICOR800) and a special inorganic binder system. The system shows excellent anti-efflorescence properties and color consistency.
