Final Report - SALTCONTROL (Prevention of salt damage to the built cultural heritage by the use of crystallisation inhibitors)
Project ID: 501571Funded under: FP6-POLICIES
This is the final report of the SALTCONTROL project, which aimed to develop a new method to prevent salt damage by using compounds that inhibit the growth of salt crystals. Applying inhibitors is expected to prevent salt crystallisation in stone pores - salts form on the surface causing much less damage. The end result should lead to the creation of a tested, reliable procedure for the use of crystallisation inhibitors for conservation. The report is essentially an executive summary, containing the project's motivation, background, objectives, methodology and results, presented in a brief and solid format.
