Abstract: Durability is defined as its ability to resist weathering action, chemical attack, abrasion, or any other process of deterioration.Durable concrete will retain its original form, quality, and serviceability when exposed to environment. We have studied varying four different percentage of superplasticizer, study of effect of superplasticizer on various properties such as effect on consistency and initial setting time of ordinary Portland cement 43 grade, effect of superplasticizer on strength development of various types of mortar in normal environment, effect of superplasticizer on strength development of various types of mortar in acidic environment. In this investigation significant attention have been given to use superplasticizer as a chemical admixture on mortar.
