The conservation community has expressed general dissatisfaction and frustration in numerous forums over current protective coatings used in the preservation of outdoor bronzes.

As the deleterious effects of polluted urban environments on outdoor bronzes become increasingly evident, conservators and caretakers of bronze monuments are increasingly expressing the need for research into new coatings as a top priority.

This research has laid the groundwork for insightful investigation into the problem of how coatings work and fail, and provides the basis for new, up-to-date information about coatings in use in the field and in industry.

Future work, should it proceed, is expected to allow new recommendations concerning the conservation treatment of outdoor bronzes.
