In the last decades there have been several studies on cultural heritage regarding the performance of protective and consolidating coatings for the prevention of decay.

Abstract

In the last decades there have been several studies on cultural heritage regarding the performance of protective and consolidating coatings for the prevention of decay. A coating must have several characteristics such as: efficiency, breathability, and must be durable and reversible. In this research work we tried to verify the performance of a commercial protective product such as Fosbuild FBLE 200, which is composed of a TiO2 nanopowder dispersed in an aqueous solution of an acrylic polymer. This product, which exhibits depolluting, antimicrobial, water-repellent and self-cleaning characteristics, has been applied on different lithotypes such as: Carrara marble, Noto and Comiso stone and exhibited in two different outdoor environments such as Catania and Palermo. These two cities are mostly affected by pollution produced by vehicular traffic; moreover, Catania is also affected by pollution produced by the activity of Mount Etna.
