Salt crystallization damage is one of the most common causes of decay for bedding, pointing and plastering mortar. Attempts to tackle the problem showed to often a limited durability to salt decay and a low compatibility with historical buildings. Recent research has shown new possibilities for improving the durability of mortars by engineering of the pore size, adding organic water repellent substances and salt crystallization inhibitors
