Abstract

Pore-space properties, such as pore-size distribution and connected porosity, are relevant factors in the evaluation of the performance of a consolidation treatment. In this study, two different techniques – Mercury Intrusion Porosimetry (MIP) and Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Relaxometry (NMRR) – were adopted to study the compatibility and the efficacy of a new consolidation product for limestones. This work aims at comparing and combining data obtained by MIP and NMRR; to confirm the relationship between the quantitative results of MIP and the qualitative ones of NMRR, a calibration which leads to correlate T2 distribution and pore size distribution has been applied. Experimental results showed that, in most cases, NMRR results agree with MIP data. Therefore, NMRR technique can be considered a powerful tool to evaluate the change in pore size distribution due to the application of a consolidating agent on stone, especially in cases when sampling should be avoided.
