PRODUCTS & SERVICES: Material Analysis

From analysis to the interpretation of results, scientific investigations provide objective data. Such services are useful to curators, conservators, collectors, and art historians who seek information that may help to date or authenticate a work of art. They may also help to determine the techniques and the materials used at particular periods of time.

Scientific analysis is essential to the understanding of the physical composition of an object, the extent of its deterioration and in choosing appropriate conservation methods. National Research Laboratory for Conservation of Cultural Property (NRLC) is the only national center for research in art conservation and restoration centre in India, combining both commercial conservation services and training in cultural material conservation.
