Compatibility of plasters and renders with salt loaded substrates in historic buildings

Objective

Ultimate aim of the project is to develop a decision model for choice and application of renderings, compatible with salt and moisture loaded substrates, salt resistant, durable and re-treatable. A model of salt decay mechanisms will be developed to describe, predict and prevent damage, selecting the most suitable characteristics of rendering in relation to substrate. Requirements for salt resistant renderings will be defined, on the basis of material properties, salt concentrations and moisture content. Guidelines (expert system), will support end users in the choice of suitable renderings for each specific case, taking into account materials, damage mechanisms, possible repair measures, environmental and climatic circumstances. Recommendations to test performance will be produced.
