Özet

The usage of travertine as a natural building and facing stone shows a gradually rising trend in construction sector around the world. Due to natural structure travertine consists of many pores during formation of rocks. White Portland cement, calcite and coloring agent are used to obtain filling material through the pores with optimum setting time as a cement filling technique.
