Procraft Project!


The Seaplane Museum is taking part in a 3-year European project on the aeronautical archeology of the 2nd World War.


The goal?

 

Propose solutions for the preservation of aeronautical objects:


• appropriate conservation-restoration techniques
• innovative coatings for external protection respecting the relevant criteria for the safeguarding of cultural heritage,
• new preventive conservation solutions in confined or semi-confined environments,
• guidelines for the restoration and conservation of aluminum alloys for non-professionals.

 

The results of the project are expected:


• to improve and share knowledge about WWII aircraft
• contribute to preservation by focusing particularly on the conservation of aluminum alloy (Al) components,
• promote the dissemination and presentation of the project to the public.

 

This European project (JPI-Cultural Heritage) is coordinated by the Arc'Antique laboratory (GPLA, Nantes), with 4 main partners: the CEMES laboratory (Toulouse), the Universities of Bologna (UNIBO) and Ferrara (UNIFE) (Italy ) and the Technical University of Prague (CTU) (Czech Republic).
Scientists and 19 Third Parties (museums, associations, conservators-restorers, state representatives, mediators) from Italy, the Czech Republic and France representing all actors in the heritage chain, will work together to share and mutually benefit from their respective skills and capacities over the 3-year project period.
