Abstract

Stone materials used in the construction of the Spanish Fortress of Bizerte, located at the north coast of Tunisia, show a high degree of alteration. Samples of these rocks, calcarenites, were collected and treated with different consolidants. Then, they were subsequently subjected to salt spray test with ventilation, in order to test the effectiveness of the products under these conditions. The results obtained from the samples mass loss and macro and microscopic inspection made possible to compare the performances of the different consolidants. These studies allow to predict the behavior of these stony materials in the field and to decide the best application in the rocks present in monuments, optimizing solutions for conservation and restoration.
