Participation in “glazed brick” project group – a research project initiated by the Norddeutschen Zentrum für Materialkunde von Kulturgut e.V. [North German Centre for Material Science of Cultural Artifacts] for the Niedersächsischen Landesamt für Denkmalpflege Hannover [Nether-Saxony State Ministry for Heritage Preservation Hanover] for conservation and restoration possibilities on terra cotta and glazed brick.
The actual restoration work was undertaken in autumn 2003 and spring 2004 by Oberbaum (RAO). Ormocer® G was used for glazing extensions and stabilisation (a hybrid polymer of organic and non-organic silicon compounds). This new product was developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research and used for glazing restoration for the first time as part of the model project.Periode: 2003 bis 2004
