Properties of consolidant and protective materials modified with nanoparticles were analysed in this study following their application onto marble samples. For this purpose, different solutions of an acrylic resin with dispersed SiO2 and TiO2 nanoparticles were prepared. The relative durability of Paraloid B72, an acrylic resin used as consolidant and modified by nanoparticles, was evaluated comparatively by means of diverse diagnostic techniques, namely, scanning electron microscopy, laser-induced fluorescence, ultrasonic sound, colorimetry, total immersion water absorption and contact angle. The results demonstrate that nanoparticles enhance the effectiveness of consolidant and protective material because they induce substantial changes of surface morphology of the coating layer. © IMechE 2013.
