Urine is used to improve the characteristics of traditional Indian lime mortar. To provide a more sanitary option, urea (fertiliser) was employed instead of urine in this investigation. Urea is applied in various proportions, including 1 percent, 2 percent, 3 percent, 4 percent, and 5 percent, using Lime Mortar 1:3 and FALG paste. Weight density, water absorption, and compressive strength were all tested on the resultant composites, which were cast into 50-square-centimeter cubes. The output of plain FAL-G cubes and simple lime mortar cubes were compared. With 3 percent urea, FAL-G has greater characteristics than lime mortar.
