IntroductionThe main idea of the European STONECORE R&D project (2008 to 2011) was to develop and evaluate nano materials for the use in refurbishment and conservation of historic monuments. A set of different calcium hydroxide (“lime”) nanoparticles dispersed in alcohols (CaLoSiL®) available on the market were tested. The general advantages attributed to alcoholic lime dispersions were: compatibility of the consolidant with the original building material, no limitation of penetration due to… 

Nanostructured lime-based materials for the conservation of calcareous substrates

Nanolimes, i.e. dispersions of lime (Ca(OH)2)nanoparticles in alcohol, have been extensively investigated over the last two decades as consolidation products for calcareous substrates. The use of

Synthetic calcium carbonate improves the effectiveness of treatments with nanolime to contrast decay in highly porous limestone

The results indicate that in such cases, the effectiveness of synthetized polymorphs of calcium carbonate may be enhanced when used in combination with CaCO3 particles, owing to the synergic effect of chemical/structural compatibility and particle size distribution.

Lime based nanomaterials for theconservation of calcareous substrates inheritage structures

Nanolime is one of the most promising consolidation materials used in the conservation of historic calcareous substrates. Whilst the popularity of nanolime has grown significantly in the last two

Assessing the Usage of Calcium and Magnesium Hydroxide Nanoparticles as Consolidant for Dolostones

Dolostone has been abundantly used in the construction of monuments during archaeological periods in Anatolia. Several of those monuments have some decay problems to be assessed and need conservation

An overview of nanolime as a consolidation method for calcareous substrates

Ca(OH)2 particles with submicrometric dimensions (nanolimes) represent one of the most promising consolidants for the conservation of calcareous substrates. The nanolime treatment is similar to the



Α Nano Approach to Consolidation of Degraded Historic Lime Mortars

This paper presents a comparative study of the effects of calcium hydroxide based agents on consolidating a lean lime mortar. In the first part, it describes the properties and characteristics of

A New Method for Consolidating Wall Paintings Based on Dispersions of Lime in Alcohol

Abstract -Dispersions of calcium hydroxide, Car OH) 2' in short-chain aliphatic alcohols were studied with the aim of establishing a new pre-consolidation and consolidation methodology for wall
