Ferro at 5th Russian Mortar Days
For the fifth time, the scientific conference Russian Mortar Days takes place in Moscow, Russia on 30. January 2018. The event is hosted by Russia’s leading Technical Institute, the Moscow State University of Civil Engineering (MCU or MGSU).
Dani Lladó our Technical Marketing Manager for Plastics and Construction is giving a paper called Mortar Coloration; Options for enhance aesthetics and performance.
Mortar Coloration; Options for enhance aesthetics and performance Abstract:
In this paper, current possibilities for dry mortar coloration will be reviewed as well as new ideas for differentiation mainly based on blue coloration and the possibilities it offers. A new range of color possibilities for mortar coloration will be presented.
The use of high IR reflecting pigments to obtain cool mortar façades will also be analyzed. This is important because highly reflective (cool) mortars can reduce solar heat buildup, improving thermal comfort and energy efficiency in buildings, as well as enhance the durability of renders due to less thermal stress.
Finally, the new range of color effects that can be obtained by using all this together may lead to new designs, tools for differentiation and greater creativity in order to achieve the most demanding mortar applications from a color, heat management, performance and design perspective.
