Nano-systems for the conservation of immoveable and moveable
polymaterial Cultural Heritage in a changing environment

Objective

Government authorities, restoration architects and conservation scientists have always had to face the problem of deterioration of historic building materials, in particular stone, wood and glass; an issue that has become more and more urgent since climate change has worsened natural decay and the impact of atmospheric pollution. In addition in recent years socio-economic requirements have claimed for a more sustainable use of existing building heritage. On these premises, the NANOMATCH project will address this issue through the development of a class of innovative consolidants to be specifically designed to meet the requirements of the historic substrates and to identify high performance products to renovate the market dedicated to the conservation of the built heritage.
Alkaline earth and semi-metal alkoxides precursors will be synthesized tuning their properties on the basis of the stone, wood and glass-substrate characteristics and the specific functionality to be addressed, leading to a new generation of nano-structured materials tailored specifically for historic materials in a climate change context, merging from the most recent advanced research in the fields of nanotechnologies and conservation science. The development of suitable products for treatment of historic materials will finally halt the current use of inappropriate commercial products, especially polymers, that were designed for completely other purposes than the conservation of cultural heritage and that, in the recent years, show the detrimental effects due to their fast deterioration, that hampers the treated material too.
Central in the project is the synthesis of molecular precursors, nano-coating deposition and related properties assessment finalized to the production of innovative products to update the market of conservation products as a real alternative for unfitting traditional ones. The basis for their production and introduction on the market will be developed during the project.
