NATURAL AGING OF DIFFERENT MOULDING PRODUCTS USED IN REPLACEMENT OF STONE SCULPTURES

Durability of 6 different moulding materials used in repair and replacement of stone sculptures in historical monuments was tested. Four mortar and 2 resin-based products were used, with 2 limestones used as reference. Durability was estimated by colorimetric changes, cracking measurements, and visual observations. Hand-made mortars displayed numerous cracks, whereas industrial mortars evidenced better durability. The study also revealed that moulding products have various durabilities which induce the development of different weathering forms.
