HORIZON 2020 Preserving cultural artefacts by preventing corrosion

Wednesday 01 April 2015 (Categories: Non ICOM/ICOM-CC)

An EU-funded research project has developed highly-sensitive detectors to monitor corrosive atmospheric pollutants in museums and archives. The detectors warn when preventative action is needed to protect Europe’s cultural artefacts – and heritage – before they are damaged by corrosion. Commercial success has followed the project and funded follow-up research on new applications, from vehicle corrosion to the paper industry.
