Comparative methods of cleaning by mechanical action (compresses and smoke sponge), air-abrasion, laser and cryogenics on plaster, paper and leather support

Duration: 2009–2010 CICRP: Katia Baslé (director), Philippe Bromblet The purpose of this study is to compare the different existing methods of cleaning against that of cryogenics on various materials (leather, paper, plaster) for which cleaning is problematic. Polishing (smoke sponge and micro-aspiration, dual-coloured rubber), fine sanding (glass
