Materia Viva is a conservation laboratory in the South West of France. It specialises in the treatment of archaeological and historical artefacts, including metals. In recent years, Materia Viva has started to clean silver artefacts which are often tarnished.
HE-Arc CR has developed the open-access DiscoveryMat application and open source Pleco electrolytic pencil to analyse historic metal artefacts and their corrosion products.
The purpose of the meeting / workshop was to demonstrate the possibilities of the analysis tools in a conservation laboratory and to see if these portable and easy-to-use systems meet the expressed needs.
C. Degrigny brought his instrumentation from the Haute Ecole Arc Conservation-restoration, Neuchâtel while the local Metrohm agency provided a DropSens potentiostat. The artefacts were provided by Materia Viva. (Read more)
