Original Abstract

Archaeological depositories are being filled by newly discovered artefacts. These items wait there until they are cleaned and conserved. New approaches are required to reduce costs and time needed for their treatment. Deposition of thin films might bring interesting results to the field of artefact conservation. Using thin film deposition methods, new protection layers for artefacts are suggested: Parylene C (or chlorinated poly-p-xylylene) and Laksil (silicon-acrylate resin). Both of them show good protection properties against gases, water and corrosion. Parylene C and Laksil layers were compared to standard protection layers – microcrystalline wax and acrylic resin (Paraloid B72).
