Original Abstract

Plasmachemical treatment is an effective and fast way of restoration and reservation of archeological artefacts. The method is based on a partial reduction of the incrustation and corrosion layers by hydrogen discharge plasma. Compared to the conventional restoration techniques, it offers significant advantages like the quality of the object surface and time savings. On the contrary, the heating stress of the treated object can cause metallographic changes which could lead even to the damage of the archaeological artefact. Temperature of the treated artefact is a very important indicator for the object protection against metallographic changes of metal bulk material.
