Paper Title:
Effect of Super-Absorbent Polymer as Admixture on the Mechanical Properties of Mortars
  Abstract

Super-absorbent polymer particles (SAPs) were used as a self-curing admixture for mortars. The effect of SAPs on mechanical properties of mortars was investigated. The performance of the mortars with SAPs added by two different ways was tested, which showed that the way of adding dried was more feasible to application. The performance of mortars with different curing methods was also tested. The results showed that SAPs in the mortars played a role of reserving water and the mechanical properties of hardened mortars with SAPs were better than those had no SAPs and exposed to the air, which suggested that incorporating SAPs can be an effective self-curing method.
