The purpose of the presented experiment was to develop an effective water glass modifier. In the conducted research, an attempt was made to determine the effect of modifier addition on the wettability of quartz grains, viscosity and cohesion of binder and strength Rm U of the sand mixture. Water glass modification was carried out with, obtained in electrochemical process [1], colloidal suspension of ZnO nanoparticles in methanol (modifier I) or propanol (modifier II), characterised by a constant molar concentration of c = 0.3 M. It was demonstrated that the addition of a colloidal suspension of ZnO nanoparticles in propanol (modifier II) had a significant effect on wettability of quartz grains improvement without the accompanying increase in binder viscosity. Testing the mechanical properties Rm U of sand mixtures containing modified binder (modifier II) hardened at ambient conditions showed an approximately 28% increase in strength compared with the Rm U of the sand bonded with an unmodified binder.
