Properties of Commercially Available, Ready-to-Use Mortars for the Restoration of Historic Renders and Masonry

pages 116 - 117, full text

There is a wide range of premixed, dry mortars, on the market, designed with the reconstruction of historic renders and masonry in mind. The use of such materials has some advantages, including good workability and standard quality, however, due to unknown composition, being a secret of a manufacturer, it is frequently impossible to predict their influence on the substrate and on the ageing. If the ready-to-use mortar is to be applied during the renovation of the historic masonry, it is necessary to know: how close the mortars’ properties match the properties of the original material; will the repair be durable enough and will it degrade faster than the original material. Technical information, provided by the manufacturer, does not contain such data. The only parameters given, are the strength, porosity of hardened mortar and water vapour diffusion coefficient, however, it is not specified in which conditions these values were measured.
