In this study, the use of hydroxyapatite (HAP), recently proposed for limestone consolidation, was investigated on unweathered and artificially weathered Carrara marble and the behaviour of HAP-treated samples towards thermal weathering was evaluated, by means of an accelerated thermal weathering test. The results of the study indicate that HAP is a very promising consolidant for marble, able to significantly improve mechanical properties without substantially altering pore size distribution and to provide some mitigation against thermal weathering.

Abstract

In this study, the use of hydroxyapatite (HAP), recently proposed for limestone consolidation, was investigated on unweathered and artificially weathered Carrara marble and the behaviour of HAP-treated samples towards thermal weathering was evaluated, by means of an accelerated thermal weathering test. The results of the study indicate that HAP is a very promising consolidant for marble, able to significantly improve mechanical properties without substantially altering pore size distribution and to provide some mitigation against thermal weathering.
