EU PANNA project started on November 2011 and aims at integrating a novel atmospheric plasma technique for surface cleaning and two innovative coating typologies (self-diagnostic protective coatings and identification marker coating) in a full-life protocol spanning surface cleaning, deposition of coatings and their complete removal. The validation of the protocol will be achieved through the cooperation between conservation scientists and technological companies. In the project, the development and testing of the protocol will be performed on two categories of substrates: metals (bronze and silver) and stone and stone-like materials (limestone, sandstone and wall paintings). The development will be performed on laboratory prepared samples (dummy or replica or mock ups) and also on real objects.
