Case Study 7





This strip out was being well done by a building company. This is a point of interest only, but can emphasise the specialist skills required in restoration.

The hydraulic lime plaster had a fibre component obviously to give it some strength and flexibility.

What is the hazard?

1. Caustic burns from wet high alkali plaster?
2. Asbestos used sometimes in this age of plaster?
3. Anthrax spores?

If you said number three you would be correct. Horse hair was used as a binding. Anthrax was common place in 18-19century and most people then had immunity, due to constant animal exposure. Today very few people have natural immunity and a health risk existed here.
