In this paper we introduce new aqueous nanolime formulations, pure or properly chemically tailored, for innovative, compatible, and eco-friendly consolidation treatments on biocalcarenite stones, a renowned kind of stones used in ancient buildings throughout the Mediterranean region, which are however subject to severe decay. The phase composition, stability, and carbonation process of the nanolime formulations were investigated, while the treatments efficacy was evaluated in terms of aesthetical features, superficial cohesion, drilling resistance and durability. The aqueous nanolimes, applied by nebulization, increased the mechanical resistance on the surface and up to 2 cm in depth without appreciable surface variations, especially in the case of the tailored formulation, ensuring a good durability to UV/salt crystallization ageing.

Abstract

In this paper we introduce new aqueous nanolime formulations, pure or properly chemically tailored, for innovative, compatible, and eco-friendly consolidation treatments on biocalcarenite stones, a renowned kind of stones used in ancient buildings throughout the Mediterranean region, which are however subject to severe decay. The phase composition, stability, and carbonation process of the nanolime formulations were investigated, while the treatments efficacy was evaluated in terms of aesthetical features, superficial cohesion, drilling resistance and durability. The aqueous nanolimes, applied by nebulization, increased the mechanical resistance on the surface and up to 2 cm in depth without appreciable surface variations, especially in the case of the tailored formulation, ensuring a good durability to UV/salt crystallization ageing.
