The research was made to determine the use of shale ash usage in dry mix construction materials by replacing part of cement amount. Fresh mortar properties, hardened mortar bulk density, thermal conductivity were tested in mortar ZM samples and mortar samples in which 20% of the amount of cement was replaced by ash. Compressive strenght, frost resistance and resistance to sulphate salt solutions were checked.It was stated that the use of electrostatic precipitator ash had a little change of the material properties, but the cyclone ash significantly reduced the mechanical strength of the material.
