Conservation Machines

Hostert Pro builds special machines for the mass conservation of library, cultural and archival papers and records.  With this process the material is saved from disintegration and preserved for the future.

Paper material that was produced between 1850 and 1980 has a high ph value due to the partial or complete industrial manufacture of the paper. Because of this the material decomposes easily.

With the “Bückeburger Verfahren” the paper is neutralized and receives a buffer of alkaloid for further preservation and solidification of the celluloid.  Especially this solidification is a feature of this process.
