- increases plasticity, cohesion and adhesion to mortar supports, into which it is added,
- improves mortar tensile and abrasive strength and resistance to impacts,
- is insensitive to hydrolysis, and makes it possible to produce structures which will be in contact with water - even permanent - sea water included,
- decreases Young’s elasticity modulus, prevents crazing, reduces shrinkage and dusting,
- improves mortar waterproofing and resistance to oil, grease, fuel and poor acid.
