Abstract:This contribution deals with the development of slurries for the restoration of brickwork buildings in Northern Germany. Various slurries on the basis of two binders with a high sulphate resistance with an admixture of solid glass globules respectively were developed, one slurry on the basis of lime the other on the basis of cement. Their aggregate is of fine quartz sands and various additives were used. The slurries were developed to restore historical terracotta. Beside the workability and the water retention capacity of the slurries, technological pa-rameters such as dynamic modulus of elasticity, compressive strength, bending and bond strength and hygrical parameters such as water absorption, water desorptions and water vapour diffusion were investigated. Further important characteristics were the resistance to freezing and thawing, the scuff resistance and the efflorescence behaviour. Some of the slurries were successfully applied to the terracotta surfaces.
