In 2001, North Dakota State University presented conclusions from the second year of a three year NCPTT funded project on outdoor bronze protective coatings.  The complete report “Development and Testing of Organic Coatings for the Protection of Outdoor Bronze Sculpture from Air-Pollutant Enhanced Corrosion — Year 2″ is available in the above download.

“The second year of research focused on exploration of new coating technologies that would be appropriate for outdoor bronze sculpture.  The coatings currently under investigation are a fluorocopolymer blended with various acrylics, conductive polymers, BTA pre-treatments, and a very fine titanium dioxide.  these coatings are being studied on both rolled bronze and on satin-finish cast monumental bronze substrates by the use of electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS)… With this information we hope to better understand the problems, practices, and ethics surrounding the conservation of bronze sculpture.  In addition we hope to be able to focus our research to techniques and materials that should be acceptable and potentially adoptable by the conservation community.”  Excerpted from Executive Summary, “Development and Testing of Organic Coatings for the Protection of Outdoor Bronze Sculpture from Air-Pollutant Enhanced Corrosion — Year 2.”
