Poultice Desalination of Porous Building Materials
New Orleans, Louisiana
May 23-29, 2010

>From Angkor to Zanzibar and Venice to New Orleans, soluble salts
are responsible for significant damage to porous building materials.
But how does salt weathering take place, and what level of salts are
harmful? Are certain salts more damaging than others? Should they be
removed, and if so, how?

Poultice Desalination of Porous Building Materials will present new
applied research on the process of poultice desalination through
practical applications and will provide participants with a solid
foundation for the poultice treatment of salt-laden building
materials. This hands-on workshop, designed for field-based
conservation professionals, will be conducted through pre-workshop
reading assignments and workshop lectures, demonstrations, and field
