Ines Dömel: Cleaning of marble - microscopic assessment of different cleaning methods and means by means of rehearsing areas on Carrara, Großkunzendorfer, Kauffunger and Prieborner marble Back
Language: Original   -   Translation
Abstract: When cleaning natural stone the cleaning methods and means are subjected to high loads primarily with regard to a very low damaging potential. Concerning the quality control of cleaning measures the macroscopic assessment represents a common method. However the microscopic assessment of cleaning rehearsals can deliver much more precise results. This thesis deals with the development of a comprehensible technically simply useable scheme for the objective assessment of cleaning measures on marble. For this rehearsing areas were created on rehearsing bodies of Carrara, Großkunzendorfer, Kauffunger and Prieborner marble with cleaning methods of most various technological principles and became examined both macroscopically and microscopically.
