Dear Sir:

Thank you for your letter of August 25th regarding the use
of ACRYL 60 as a stabilizer for tabby foundations.

We have used ACRYL 60 for such purposes in the past with
good results. However, I am advising our local representative:

Mr. H. Woodall Hilscher
928 Fairway Drive
Winter Park, Florida 32792
Phone: (305) 678-1534

to contact you with the possibility of our research depart-
ment coming up with a product that would be more penetrating.

If I can be of further assistance, please contact me.

Sincerely,

STANDARD DRY WALL PRODUCTS

Gentlemen:

We are seeking advice on a method of stabilizing and

protecting some 18th century tabby (oyster shell, lime and

sand) foundations.

Since most, if not all, of the adhesive qualities are no

longer present in the lime mortar, we are considering the

possibility of saturating the foundations with an acrylic poly-

mer to bind the aggregate together. Would your product,

Acryl 60 be suitable for this purpose?

The foundations are outdoors and will not be subject

to loading.

Any help in this matter would be appreciated.

Sincerely,


Robert H. Steinbach, Director
Research and Development
