Consolidant for grisailles  and archaeological glass

SIOX-5 RE20 is a consolidant with water repellent protective function based on sol-gel technology developed by the Group of Chemistry for Cultural Heritage at the University of Padua, Italy (Patent n. 0001370467   Synthesis of silica protective films by tin-catalized sol-gel process).

HOW IT WORKS

The product contains nanostructured silica gel. Once applied it forms a layer of amorphous silica thin, colorless, transparent, compatible with the substrate, able to consolidate grisailles of stained glass, archaeological findings with flakes to protect from leaching.
