Project Details


To investigate the physical and chemical properties of hydraulic lime binders on the UK market, and to relate this to the characteristics of conservation mortars made with such binders, cured under a variety of regimes, in order to better understand the connection between binder and mortar properties. Better understanding of this correlation will enable predictions to be made as to the likely performance of new limes brought to the market, simply by analysing the binder, rather than mortar samples.
