Hydraulic Lime Mortars for the Restoration of Historic Masonry in Crete

This study is part of an ongoing research that is focused towards the synthesis of repair mortars with physico-chemical compatibility to the original historic masonries in Crete, Greece, as well as evaluation and assessment of new restoration mortars. Besides the physico-chemical compatibility, the proposed repair mortars were manufactured and tested , having in mind the following principles: they should not release soluble salts or harmful byproducts in the historic masonry, and they should not be stronger than the building stoned and excessively stronger than the original mortar. The study presents the results obtained form (a) the characterization of the original mortar, (b) the design and characterization of repair mortars and (c) the evaluation and monitoring of the proposed repair mortars and plasters used in the restoration of the villa.
