Abstract

One important innovation of green construction material is natural polymer modified mortar. In this research, polymer modified mortar used natural polymer from seaweeds, they are Eucheuma Cottonii (gel) and Gracilaria Sp. The research conducted in two parts, pre-experiment and main-experiment. Pre-experiment aimed to investigate compressive strength of natural polymer modified mortar with seaweed gel (Eucheuma Cottonii) and seaweed powder (Gracilaria Sp.). The pre-experiment followed by main-experiment which investigated compressive strength and splitting tensile strength. The research has shown that natural polymer modified mortar with seaweed powder (Gracilaria Sp.) performed great compressive strength and splitting tensile with optimum mix composition of KM-0.5.
