In this study, durability of polymer-modified mortar is examined. The examination results are marshalled data about the relation with a polymer cement ratio and each property. In addition, carbonation resistance of polymer-modified mortar is evaluated. In the result, it is confirmed that compressive strength and air content have a profound effect on durability of polymer-modified mortar than polymer cement ratio. Moreover, it is confirmed that most all of commercially available polymer-modified mortar used in this study have necessary resistance for carbonation.
