Abstract

This paper describes with experimental study on properties of colored mortar using concrete pigments. In experiment, the compressive strength and color changes of mortar to which pigment was added were investigated. This investigation led to the following conclusions. 1) It is possible to manufacture colored mortar with high compressive strength, and 2) the color of colored mortar changes as the result of drying after demolding, but the denser the structure of the mortar and the greater its compressive strength, the less pronounced the color change.
