1 Introduction In recent years usage of self-compacting concrete and self-levelling mortar has highly increased because of its economical and time benefits [ 1 ]. The preparation of self-compacting concrete water plays a vital role in the

compressive strength of cement mortars was also examined.
This article is a continuation of our previously published studies [ 20 ] on cement pastes with described waste catalyst.

curves on heating.
The standard cement pastes, mortars and concretes show generally less or more visible shrinkage on setting and hardening because the volume of formed hydrated phases is less than the volume of initial components. However, in

dry curing shows the noticeable strength rise with 10% addition. L.K. Aggarwal [ 14 ] used epoxy emulsion and acrylic emulsion to modify the mortar and compared the workability and mechanical property. He noticed that the epoxy emulsion-based modified
