Beschreibung

Suitable for both students and working conservators, this title gives an introduction to the properties of materials used in conservation. It explains physical and chemical properties which are important in the conservation process such as: application, ageing, and reversal.

Autorentext

Velson Horie is a strategic planner with an international reputation in project management, research, and teaching. After a degree in chemistry, he trained in archaeological conservation at the Institute of Archaeology (London) where interest started in polymers and their use in conservation. As an archaeological conservator in the north-east of England, he pioneered the use of environmental control and the integration of conservation ideas into wider museum concerns. For 28 years he was Keeper of Conservation at The Manchester Museum, The University of Manchester, then was the Research Project Manager at the British Library coordinating an international and interdisciplinary study on the natural ageing of books. He has carried out conservation, research, and professional coordination primarily with organic materials, such as polymers, preserved animal skin, movie film, and degraded wood. He project managed and delivered a wide range of projects, from collaborative research to professional accreditation to a GBP21m capital development. All required, and benefited from, multi-disciplinary teams, focussed on quality improvements with clear public benefits. Teaching experience includes university lectures, a distance learning course on Chemistry for Conservators and professional updating courses on polymers, most recently involved with the design and delivery of a course Adhesives for Conservation for the American Institute for Conservation. He acts as a consultant to museums and other institutions on their development and Curatorial Advisor to the New Mills Heritage Centre. He has upwards of 80 publications and editorships, including Materials for Conservation and papers on film degradation and preservation. He is a Fellow of the International Institute for Conservation, and the Museums Association, an Accredited Conservator-Restorer, and a professional Member of the Association for Project Management. He was on the board of the Institute of Conservation and its predecessor. He is currently Treasurer of the International Institute for Conservation.



Klappentext

Materials in Conservation is the definitive introduction to the properties of materials used in conservation. There are a wide range of techniques that can be employed to combat the deterioration of objects, and this book will enable the modern professional conservator (of which there are 10-15,000) to appreciate the potentials and pitfalls of any proposed technique. In this second edition, this classic text is revised and updated to include modern materials such as cyclododecane, and current ideas on adhesion, consolidation and reversibility, making Materials in Conservation the definitive source of vital information in the field.



Zusammenfassung
An introduction to the properties of materials used in conservation. It explains physical and chemical properties which are important in the conservation process; that is, application, ageing, reversal. It covers such topics as: molecular weight, glass transition temperature, solubility and solvents, polymerisation and degradation reactions.
