The structure of mineral building materials that are exposed to the weather is always weakened. This weakness is usually caused by an expansion of the original pore structure, rarely by a real loss of binding agent. The central task of a consolidation measure is to specifically fill the pore spaces created as a result of the weathering. This occurs by penetration of an additional nature-identical binding agent.
Mineral or plastic modified-based stone substitution mortar is still highly important as part of preserving and restoring measures of natural stone parts. This is due to a number of benefits that these systems have compared to other binding agent variants for stone substitution mortars.
The Remmers Restoration Mortar system was specially developed for supplementing mineral building materials or replacing them.
Despite the high quality and special qualities of concrete, damage can occur that requires maintenance, repair and protection. A distinction must be made between environmental influences and production faults with respect to concrete damage. Environmental influences can include exhaust fumes, acid rain, frost and de-icing salts. Here, the chemical properties are changed so that the steel reinforcements in the concrete start to rust. Shrinkage cracks, pipes, gravel pockets and insufficient concrete cover are typical production faults that also promote corrosion of the reinforcements.
In contrast to bricks or modern building materials, natural stone not only differs with respect to its shape, colour and surface quality, the physical and chemical properties are also very different. It is therefore especially important to preserve the original material and carefully select the newly installed repair materials to preserve the substance for the long-term. Across the world, Remmers stone strengtheners are used to secure historically valuable cultural assets.
