Big Stuff webinar - Coatings for conserving heritage machinery

Activity: Participating in or organising an eventOrganising a conference, workshop, ...


Big Stuff webinar: Eva Wentland, an emerging Big Stuff conservator, will introduce the controversial topic of coatings for industrial heritage, with an emphasis on heritage exposed outdoors. The basis for this session is the aim to preserve historic coatings as primary sources of information and connection, either visibly by using transparent coatings or invisibly by overcoating with pigmented systems, and with corrosion prevention at the same time.
As always, there is never one right way, especially in heritage preservation where we always have to develop individual solutions for each object. However, we may learn from past case-studies and from the behaviour and (in)stability of the materials introduced to objects for conservation purposes. The aim is to exchange experiences: which coatings do you all use? How can their performance be assessed after long-term exposure? How laborious are subsequent maintenance measures, are they even possible?
