Language: Original   -   Translation
Abstract: The Rochlitzer porphyry tuff is an important memorial rock for the Saxon area. The damage phenomenon of the rock shows strong losses through the crumbling effect.
The Rochlitzer porphyry tuff introduces its ratings in which the different colours of the rock are dealt with. The tests for the strengthening are carried out on test material and end building material. The intact test material became after different experiments the artificial decomposition partly destroyed. After pre-tests for the consolidation, a silicon dioxide ester, two acrylic resins and a polyurethane resin were selected. Both the polyurethane resin and one of the acrylic resins were favoured and used for the consolidation of the expansion material. In this work, certain recommendations for the consolidation of the rock can be given.
