Abstract: The project intends to expand the results obtained in three previous projects on the radiation treatment of polychrome wood and paper for two other categories of materials important for the cultural heritage: leather and textiles. After the irradiation treatment, both bioburden (microbial load of the items) and degradation effects of the material depend on the absorbed dose. Under these circumstances the TEXLECONS project has two main objectives: 1. Study of the bioburden of textile and leather cultural heritage items, cultural heritage deposits and workplaces to establish the maximal limit of contamination that will lead to the minimal irradiation dose 2. Study of the radiation induced degradation on cultural heritage items to determine the maximum allowed radiation dose for the treatment. The tests will be performed on both recent and naturally and/or artificially aged materials. For subtracting the cumulative effects, tests will be performed both on the whole material as it appears in the cultural artefacts and on constituents, raw materials and additives. Finally, one standardized method will be used for the substantiation of the decontamination dose and validation of the irradiation treatment. The process specification for irradiation treatment will be built as first stage of the preparation of technological transfer of the use of the irradiation technology for textile and leather cultural heritage preservation. An important objective is the training component addressed to the workers in cultural heritage deposits and laboratories.

Objectives:
