Preventive Conservation of Stone Objects

Kategoria produktu:

This publication is intended as a manual for students who specialize in restoration of stone historical objects. It is complementary to lecture materials delivered to the students of the second year, after they have got acquainted with the bases of chemistry, physics, geology and petrography. Fundamental knowledge of these subjects makes it possible to understand and get to know the information material contained in the present book.

Introduction (W. Domasłowski); The resistance of rocks to the action of destructive agents and symptoms of deterioration (W. Domasłowski): * Igneous rocks * Sedimentary rocks - sandstones * Sedimentary rocks - limstones and marbles; Causes of stone deterioration (W. Domasłowski): The action of water * The action of atmospherical gases and pollution * The action of water-soluble-salts * Effect of temperature changes * The action of mechanical agents; Biological factors (S. Leźnicka): The role of autotrophic microorganisms in stone deterioration * Algae, blue-green algae and lichens * Chemolithotrophic bacteria * Sulphuric bacteria and reducing sulphuric compounds * Nitrifying bacteria * Higher plants on stone historical objects * The role of heterotrophic organisms in deterioration of stone objects * Moulds * Heterotrophic bacteria; Patina - the mechanism of formation and properties (W.

Krause, B. Soldenhoff) * Some problems related to the desalination of stone monuments * Desalination compresses * The methods for desalination of monuments * Desalination by migration of salts to the open environment * The method of free migration of salts to the open environment * The forced migration of salts to the open environment * Desalination under the column of water * Desalination under vacuum * Desalination by diffusion of salts * Desalination in a static bath * Desalination in a dynamic bath * Desalination by means of constant electric field (S. Skibiński) * The methods for limitation of salts crystallization (W. Domasłowski) * Transformation of sulphates into insoluble salts * Limitation of free crystallization and migration of salts * The destruction of living organisms (A. Strzelczyk) * Dehydration treatments inhibiting the growth of microorganisms * Chemical treatments * Destruction of microorganisms (bacteria, fungi, algae and lichens) * The removal of fungi originated stains from stone monuments * Protection against water (D. Sobkowiak) * Drying and stabilization of the ground * Horizontal drainage * Vertical drainage * Electrodrainage * Cebertisation * Prevention the capillary rising of water in stone monuments * Horizontal and vertical insulation * Electroosmotic insulation * Insulation based on chemical methods * Introduction of substances blocking water capillary rising * Materials for anti-capillary barriers * The methods of monument protection against moistening * Drying by the Knappen method * Pointing with porous mortars * Drying of stone above insulation * The hydrophobisation of stone (W. Domasłowski, O. Kazanecka) * Surface phenomena * Surface tension of liquid * Wetting of solids by liquids * Terminal contact angle * Capillary rising of liquids * Some properties of water-repellent substances * Soaps * Waxes * Natural waxes * Synthetic waxes * Synthetic resins * Organo-silicon compounds - silicones (J.
