Make-ready of microwave technic applied to restoration of wooden objects and archives

Objective



Due to environmental concerns, the research is being focused on the development of no pollutant technologies in new applications. This has arisen the idea of make-ready a well known technology, the microwaves, as remedial treatment of wooden objects (object d'art, furniture, paintings) and archives attacked by xylophagous agents. The aim of this project is to develop a treatment that eradicates the destructive agents by microwaves: - quick and effective - cheap - no-contaminant taking into account that this technology does not produce the material degradation on polychromes, varnish, paper, and so on.
