Problem
restauro-consolidamento1515454Consolidation aims to restore to the surfaces the lost compactness and adhesion between the individual layers, significantly increasing their mechanical characteristics, preventing detachments and/or losses of material.

In the restoration sector, the consolidants used must have molecules that form intermediates as close as possible to the natural binder of the stone or of the artifact so as to leave the characteristics of breathability and color unchanged.

These molecules must also have good penetration characteristics, durability and resistance to climatic conditions.

Solution
For this purpose CIR has developed a range of consolidants able to respond in a concrete way to all the requirements indicated in the NORMAL 20/85 recommendations, referring to conservative interventions on stone materials.

These specific products make it possible to intervene on every type of natural stone, both in calcareous and silicate matrix, and on manufactured products, using both raw materials consolidated over time and new generation in NANOTECHNOLOGY, always respecting the following requirements:

  • They must not undergo rapid aging processes
  • They must have good resistance to weather conditions
  • They must be compatible with the chemical and physical properties of the stone
  • They must have a coefficient of thermal expansion similar to that of the support
  • They must guarantee vapor permeability
  • They must not cause harmful by-products
  • They must not be toxic

INTERVENTION CYCLE

  • Removal of pollutants present on surfaces with a specific CIR cleaner
  • On a clean and dry surface, carry out the consolidation operation with the application of SILETILE – BIO CPABIO R-IPC 30CONSOLIDA NANO
  • Evaluate the consolidating effect after about 15 – 20 days
  • Subsequently proceed with finishing operations
CIR SOLUTION ADVANTAGES
The SOLUTION proposed by CIR guarantee a high consolidating power in the mineral substrates and the total absence of harmful byproducts respecting all the characteristics required by the NORMAL rules.

Furthermore, the range of CIR consolidants allows to perform the intervention on all types of substrates, even the most difficult ones, such as limestone stones, while maintaining the physical characteristics of the materials unaltered.

The SOLUTION proposed by CIR have the following advantages:
• Compatible with the chemical and physical properties of materials
• They guarantee vapor permeability
• They do not cause harmful by-products

THE TECHNICIAN RECOMMENDS
The consolidating operation must always be carried out on a perfectly dry surface free from both indoor and superficial humidity, as this acts as a catalyst during the chemical reaction of the consolidant and could lead to its undesired superficial crystallization.
