FILLS FOR BRIDGING STRUCTURAL GAPS IN WOODEN OBJECTS

PAUL S. STORCH


ABSTRACT—The use of room temperature vulcanizing (RTV) silicone resin as a flexible gap filler for restoring structural integrity to the components of a wooden architectural object is explained. The advantages of using an RTV for this type of fill are its compatibility with a flexible structure consisting of wood that responds to changing environmental conditions. The method of consolidation prior to the structural fill insertion is also described.
