The influence of a plasticizer based on polycarboxylate esters on the properties of a high-strength fluoroanhydrite composition and a lightweight composition with expanded perlite sand is investigated. It was shown that the addition of 2% polycarboxylate esters on water base to compositions has increased compressive strength and a flexural strength up to 46% and 20% respectively compare to composite without any additives. Due to the structure’s compaction of the compositions, water absorption decreased and the water resistance of the material increased. Microstructural analysis of the compositions confirmed the improvement of physical and mechanical characteristics by changing the morphology of crystallohydrate formations, increasing the contact area between new formations and modifying the structure by carbon nanotubes. The developed mixtures are supposed to be apply for self-leveling fluid mixtures for floors with reduced thermal conductivity.
