About the project

•Volatile Binding Media (VBM) are temporary consolidants for the protection of fragile heritage materials, as archaeological artifacts, during high-risk operations such as handling and transport to the museums. VBM spontaneously passes from the solid to the gaseous state and does not require additional steps to be removed, without leaving residues. Conservators would highly benefit from a range of VBM having different sublimation rates (able to be tailored to the specific case).
•In this project, CDD, alternative VBM, and mixtures of these materials are investigated.  The best VBM will be tested also on real historical objects. VOLATILE4ARCHAEO will deliver a wider range of options for short- or long-term consolidation using VBM along with experimental empirical data on their physical-chemical behavior.


VOLATILE4ARCHAEO(Investigation of Volatile Binding Media in temporary consolidation of archaeological materials) is a project funded by the European Commission through the "Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions - Call: H2020-MSCA-IF-2020- Individual Fellowship (H2020-MSCA-IF-EF-ST)", within Horizon2020, Grant agreement ID: 101031224
