Many projects demand that samples of historic mortars be analysed and it is all too often a ‘tick box’ exercise required to gain listed building consent or to meet funder’s requirements. However analysis of existing and historic mortars is an important step in the creation of well matched and appropriate mortar specifications for undertaking successful repairs. This seminar will allow attendees to gain a greater understanding of the process of mortar analysis and to be able to understand and use the results of mortar analysis to create better specifications for replacement mortars.
