lilbridge writes: For over 1,500 years the Chinese have been using sticky rice as an ingredient in mortar, which has resulted in super strong buildings many of which are still standing after hundreds of years. Scientists have been studying the sticky rice and lime mortar to unlock the secrets of its strength and have just determined the secret ingredient which makes the mortar more stable and stronger. The scientists have also concluded that this mixture is the most appropriate for restoration of ancient and historic buildings, which means its probably also appropriate for new construction as well.
