Abstract: As the cement content is one of the parameters that control alkali–silica reaction (ASR), this study examined its influence on the expansion of glass mortars. The mortars had volumetric ratio of 1:4 (cement: aggregate) and various aggregate compositions, obtained using replacement ratios of natural sand with waste glass, of 0, 20, 50 and 100%. A volumetric ratio 1:4 was chosen because it is a current composition for cementitious coating mortars. In fact, mortar mixes with increased cement content can lead to erroneous conclusions for in situ mixtures with reactive aggregates. It is concluded that it is feasible to produce glass mortars without deleterious ASR expansion depending on the amount of cement used. For normal cement/ aggregate ratios for coating mortars (1:4, in volume), a CEM II/B-L 32.5 N mortar with glass incorporation has a low ASR risk.
