Urgency of the research. Urgency of the executed researches is in increase of weatherability of the construction porous nonmetallic materials impregnated by organic silicon compouds of different compositions.

Target setting. Porous nonmetallic materials are the least resistant to action of atmospheric factors which causes expediency of their processing by organic silicon compouds.

Actual scientific researches and issues analysis. The questions of concretes weatherability increase are studied most fully. Hydrophobic protection with use of organic silicon compouds is widely applied to increase in weatherability of historical and cultural monuments.

Uninvestigatigated parts of general matters defining. One of most effective ways of protection of construction nonmetallic materials is the use of organic silicon compouds of different compositions. But the information concerning a possibility to increase weatherability of porous nonmetallic materials is almost absent.

The research objectiveA task of this work is assessment of weatherability of construction porous nonmetallic materials of silicate (sandstone, a tufa) and carbonate (limestone, shell rock) origin impregnated with organic silicon compouds of different compositions.

The statement of basic materials. The construction facing porous nonmetallic materials, most widespread in construction practice, are used as the objects of researches. These are porous nonmetallic materials of silicate (sandstone, a tufa) and carbonate (limestone, a shell rock) origins. Properties of the materials impregnated with siloxanes were investigated. Efficiency of application of organic silicon compouds to increase of porous natural stone weatherability is estimated.

ConclusionsDespite of essential differences in the chemical compositions, characters and volumes of porosity, certain regularities concerning efficiency of the organic silicon compouds impregnating are recorded. It is established that the porous nonmetallic materials impregnated with three-component structure of potassium metilsilikonat, sodium etil- and fenilsilikonat have the highest weatherability.
