Micro-XRF for non destructive analysis of museum and archaeological objects
Micro-XRF for non destructive analysis of museum and archaeological objects
The XGT-5000 is ideally suited for analysis of archaeology specimens and museum objects. Analysis of a coloured illustration in a Nepalese manuscript was carried out to understand more fully the types of pigments used to obtain particular hues. Due to the penetrating nature of x-rays it was possible to probe not only the topmost layer of pigments, but also those which had been used for undercoating.

acrylic_paint_02
New aqueous cleaning system for acrylic paint films on paper supports has been developed. Isotonic aqueous cleaning solutions that match the pH and conductivity readings of acrylic paint films and paper supports obtained from agarose gel pellets have been shown to be effective in reducing or removing dirt, dust, active mold growth and associated stains, tide line stains, and discoloration.
