Filler

Any substance in paste form, used to fill cracks and imperfections in wood or marble.

Filler

 

a pasty substance used in painting and varnishing to produce a smooth surface before the surface coat is applied. In addition to film-forming materials, fillers contain extenders such as chalk, talc, and barite as well as pigments such as zinc white and ocher. Fillers may have a varnish, drying-oil, or natural-adhesive base. Since the content of film-forming materials in a filler is 5–12 times lower than that of pigment or extender, fillers do not provide for a sure adhesion of the covering coats to the surface. For this reason, a filler is usually applied over a layer of primer.

A thick filler is applied with a putty knife or a piece of rubber. A filler thinned with small amounts of solvent may be applied with a pneumatic spray gun. The thickness of a layer of filler may reach 300 μ; when a filler is used to fill holes or to seal a joint or a riveted or welded seam, however, several layers with a total thickness of up to 1 mm may be required. The dried-up layer of filler must be sanded well with an abrasive paper. Varnish-based fillers are used mainly in the machine-building industry; fillers with a natural-adhesive or drying-oil base are used primarily in the construction industry.

The solution to this problem consists in finding an optimum rigidity of the bridge structure in terms of the mutual interaction and rigidity of the vault structure, the breast walls and the bridge body filler under which the mechanical stress states will not exceed the load-bearing capacity of the stone masonry (mainly in tension) eliminating, at the same time, excessive deformations so that the residual component of each coming deformation is at least by one to two orders lower than the total deformation of the bridge structure, thus preventing progressive and gradual disintegration of the stone structure.
Theoretical analyses and the monitoring of deformations show that the increased rigidity of the bridge body filler and its interaction with the stone structure had a negative effect on the behaviour of the bridge structure contributing to its gradual mechanical disintegration.
