Garvin Deckers: Repainting outdoor concrete figures by the example of the 'Heilig Landstichting' in the Netherlands Back
Language: Original   -   Translation
Abstract: The difficulty of repainting outdoor concrete figures has been little discussed in previous research. The basis for this series of experiments is built upon the description of the properties from artificial stone and different colours. The material testing is done on stone specimens with silicone resin emulsion paint, latex paint, oil paint, dispersion type silicate paint and silicate paint. The results are used to determine the most suitable paint for the recasting of the stone figures in the memorial park Heilig Landstichting (Netherlands). The test results suggest the assumption that the dispersion type silicate paint is the most suitable choice for this coating.
