Abstract

This article presents the results of experimental research to determine the size of powder graining in building materials, specifically, gypsums (Dolina Nidy, Pinczow) and adhesives (Atlas Sp. z o.o., Lodz, and Weber Saint-Gobain, Warsaw). A modern laser diffraction method for measuring the distribution of particle sizes with respect to their diameters was applied. During the experiment, three series of measurements were conducted for each material. Data relating to the graining of building materials is crucial because it is one of many aspects that directly affects the binding time and defines its potential applications in the construction industry.
