Katharina Schmidt-Ott: The cleaning of silver surfaces Back
Language: Original   -   Translation
Abstract: After two introducing chapters on silver, its corrosion, and on general aspects of the different cleaning methods, the results of a test of eight commercial silver cleaning products for their ratio of silver wear during cleaning on polished silver samples and on tarnished silver objects are given. The amount of silver wear is set in relation to sizes and amounts of scratches on the silver surfaces caused by the cleaning agents. This investigation concentrates on historic silver ware and does not consider archaeological silver objects. (AATA No.: 32-2572, text: B. Niemeyer)
