Paper Abstract

Estimate of sorption of liquid materials inside porous stones and wood is an important parameter in industrial material testing and cultural heritage conservation. In the latter case, a suitable polymer can be used for both consolidation and conservation, it being applied either in the final form or as its parent monomer, which is subsequently allowed to polymerize in situ by the classical method or by frontal polymerization. In this paper a recently developed methodology based of X-ray tomography is presented. This technique has been applied to different types of wood and stone. The gradient of penetration has also been studied. Some of the results obtained are reported and discussed.
