Abstract

Sulphate attack of mortars continues to play the most important role in their deterioration, while causing implications for both the amenity and performance characteristics of monuments. The degradation that results also has economic consequences for architectural heritage, as the total damage cost is the sum of the renovation cost and amenity loss. In addressing the problem of dissolution of binding material caused by sulphate attack, this research focuses on the effect of barium hydroxide, as an additive, on the physical and chemical properties and durability of conservation mortars
