    Abstract

    It is known that lime was added to historic Roman cement render mortars. The focus of this work is the influence of the combination of NHL5 and CL90 with Roman cement in mortars for restoration; however, the results indicate a wider potential for render applications in general. It is shown that simply adding lime to Roman cement does not retard its hydration and yields mortars where the binding action of the cement is compromised by the mixing process. If the cement is retarded by means of a pre-hydration process, hybrid mortars can be produced with improved workability and workable life as well as permitting the fine control of strength and moisture transport.
