Abstract: Cement mortar is one of the important materials which plays key role in maximising the durability of a building. Strength, permeability, thermal insulation, freeze and thaw resistance, Chloride-ion penetration, carbonation, hydration, weathering are the factors affecting the overall performance of the cement mortar. So many new ingredients are being used as admixture have been investigated for making the mortar of high performance. Various nano materials are constituting the advance engineering products with smart working. Some industrial waste like blast furnace slag, fly ash, silica fume, also incorporated in cement concrete for making mortar economical. In this Experimental study nano oxide of Zinc, aluminium, and silicon have been investigated in cement mortar and compared. It is found that all nano materials are not having the similar effect.
Keywords: Nano Zinc Oxide, Compressive Strength, Cement Mortar.
