Abstract:An analysis of variance was used to evaluate quantitatively the effect of a new type of melamine resin admixture on the setting, water-reduction, and compressive and flexural strengths of mortars made from ground clinker and from portland cement. Significant contributionsnoted to the retarding action of gypsum, action as a powerful water reducing agent, and increases in the compressive strength of clinker (to 150 percent) and portland cement mortar (to 65 percent).
