The subject of the paper is presentation of action mechanism and effectiveness estimation of different types of chemical admixtures that make it possible to control the course of shrinkage strains associated with cement hydration process. There are presented tests results from the research program realization in which there were used the basic types of admixtures allowing for producing mortars and concretes with reduced or compensated shrinkage. In conducted tests there were applied admixtures based on calcium oxide, multi-molecule alcohol as well as water polymer dispersions (styrene-acrylic co-polymer - SA and styrene-butadiene latex - SBR). Their influence onto the magnitude of shrinkage strain and strength development for cement mortars was analyzed.
