Modular Cleaning Program practical cours by Chris Stavroudis

After the theoretical part its time for  The Modular Cleaning Program practical cours by Chris Stavroudis. 16 restorers of all disciplines came together at the SRAL in Maastricht in 2011. They planned to learn how The MCP program works in practice. Kate Bangerter and Marjan de Visser took their homemade MCP kit and tested it on the spot with the aid of Chris.

Mixing the MCP

Besides that we all made new mixtures to make a kit for everybody. It was a hard working four days long. In which we got divided in groups and mixed the five orthogonal components. Which are: water, pH buffer, chelating agent, surfactant and gelling agent. Besides that we mixed a solvent set and a Pemulen set.
During the workshop we tested the system of the set, and discussed the results.
We all went home with our own sets and can get started.
I was exhausted but satisfied, right now I already feel very confident with this method. I helps you in speeding up cleaning tests and making the recipe you chose, in every amount you want.
