Summary

In this review, authors discuss the pre-requisites to be fulfilled for the preservation of stone monuments, referring both to the selection of appropriate materials (compatibility principle) as well as to the repair process itself. Since ancient times, a wide range of natural and synthetic polymers has been employed for stone recovery purposes. The paper presents the examples of most commonly used polymeric materials along with recent trends in conservation of stone materials.
