Abstract(s)This study aimed to develop a mortar based on hydraulic lime and micro cork granules with antifungal properties. For this purpose, five different compositions were developed, where the amount of cork granules was different and physical and mechanical characterisations were performed. It was observed that the incorporation of micro cork granules causes significant differences in properties such as workability, compressive strength and flexural strength. Some changes in mortars were circumvented by varying the dosage of superplasticizer. The antifungal properties of micro cork granules - added mortars were observed. The results obtained can be considered as a starting point for a transition from current antifungal protections to a new antifungal technique using cork industrial waste materials.
