Abstract

In this study, to improve the required properties of tile cement mortar such as excellent water retention capacity (WRC), workability, open time, sag resistance, and tile adhesive strength, tile cement mortars containing the several additives with different ratio were compared and analyzed. By adding small amount of synthesized starch to hydroxypropyl methylcellulose (HPMC) which is used for improving WRC, the decrease of moisture evacuation from mortar surface was observed and the workability of mortar was improved with long open time. Polyacrylamide (PAAm) and ethylencvinyl acetate (EVAc) were also added in order to increase the adhesion of tile. As a results, the saggings of mortar itself and tile were decreased and the adhesive strength of mortar between base and tile was enhanced. By adding melment, the workability was improved by increasing the fluidity of mortar. It is postulated that the properties of tile cement mortar was improved by adding 0.80~1.20% of HPMC, 0.10~0.15% of starch, 0.001~0.015% of PAAm, 0.05~0.10% of EVAc and 0.003~0.005% of melment to the cement mortar.
