Understanding the importance of an adequate characterization and conservation is the key factor when working with historical artwork and heritage. SFTec is specialised in portable and handheld Spectroscopy Solutions for the Conservation and Heritage sector.
Our portable FTIR instrumentation offers academics and conservators alike an unprecedented opportunity to analyze precious and fragile artefacts, artwork and exhibits using non-invasive and non-destructive analysis techniques.
We are able to help researchers across Europe analyze color in ancient sculptures, characterize pigments in manuscripts and improve monitoring of cultural heritage objects.
The use of portable FTIR spectroscopy combined with artificial intelligence techniques for the identification of compounds allows us to obtain significant information about the fibers that make up fabrics, manuscript supports and paint pigments.
Watch as Dr. Giovanni Verri, a lecturer at the Courtauld Institute of Art in London, explains how he is using handheld FTIR for the analysis of art and historical objects.
