This is the result of the study on the temporary fortifier using sublimation type Consolidate is Cyclododecane to prepare plan for reinforcement of the surface part that can be damaged during the dismantling of stone cultural heritages. To supplement the disadvantages of the existing reinforcement methods using intumescent urethane foam, Cyclododecane was diluted in solvent to reinforce the surface and inside desquamation, and after dismantling the framework, it sublimated by imposing heat of about . Such method can guarantee the strength needed for reinforcement of the damaged surface with outstanding reversibility of Cyclododecane being entirely sublimated. But, it shows big difference of effect according to the solvent, so it shall be diluted in petroleum ether or heated in a double boiler. Therefore, considering the working conditions at the site, it seems the most appropriate to use petroleum ether double boiler heating method for injection and filling of the desquamation part and temporary reinforcement processing with Cyclododecane diluted in petroleum ether for surface spraying.
