Irradiation




We have been using gamma radiation for about 9 years, X-ray radiation since 2009, applying these methods mainly on files concerning legal security and on a few works of cultural and artistic heritage. 
 


We only use irradiation in accordance with and with the approval from our customers. 


Which criteria point to a treatment using irradiation?

    characteristics of the material 
    results of the microbiological analysis 
    extent of infestation and species of the mould growth 
    future storage 
    intended use of the material 


Important

With the help of X-rays the mould growth is destroyed but the remaining mycelium (netting) must be removed mechanically after the treatment because it could still have an allergenic and toxic effect.
