Workability, Compatibility and Efficiency of nano-structured materials for building substrates

The work will evaluate the applicability and workability of metal-alkoxides solution and nanosols on the different substrates. If adequate, the compatibility of the nanostructured materials with the substrate and performance regarding the specific properties will be assessed, also in comparison to current traditional and innovative commercial products.

The objectives of WP3 are:
- Applicability and workability optimization to perform suitable treatments on the different substrates
- Assessment of compatibility of nanostructured materials with the substrates
- Assessment of the treated performance and its durability
- Evaluation and optimization of the biocide efficiency


Subprogramme Area: Development of advanced compatible materials and techniques and their application for the protection, conservation and restoration of cultural heritage assets
