ABSTRACT

The paper discusses using of Klucel G and chitosan loaded with nano-calcium hydroxide as consolidates for damaged Cartonnage extracted from dry excavations soil. Analytical methods used in these analyses included scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), attenuated total reflection Fou-rier transform infrared (ΑTR-FTIR) spectroscopy and digital microscopy. The results proved the success of Klucel G in giving better results than Chitosan, and the performance of the two materials improved by adding nanomaterial, although the best one was Klucel G with nano-calcium hydroxide 3%.
