Means

2CRC dhas a special area dedicated to treatment with large washing sinks, freezers, refrigerators and a freeze-dryer(0,25 m3). Drying method allows restoring the flexibility of the leather finds with a natural color.


Archaeological leather

Archeaological leather needs special devices to be treated and dried as most of the time, it is discovered humid or waterlogged. PEG 400 impregnation and freeze-drying is used.


Restoration

After drying treatment, the leather fragments can be reassembled and reshaped to reconstitute 3D objects. Good knowledge of the objects typology is required in order to keep all the technical information and to do the best restoration / reshaping.

Typologies

Good knowledge of the objects typology is required in order to keep all the technical information and to do the best restoration / reshaping.
