Clay Pack Treatment

Archaeological Survey of India has used clay pack treatment in the recent past, for removal of accretionary deposits, at Moti Masjid at Agra Fort, Sheikh Salim Chisti’s tomb at Fatehpur Sikri, Diwane-e-Am, Dewane-e-Khas & Shahburj at Red Fort, Delhi and Victoria Memorial at Kolkata. This method is used because it is non-abrasive, non-corrosive and very effective to remove deposits from marble surfaces.

The adherent accretionary deposits were successfully removed from marble surfaces. Conservation work of the monuments is a continuous process and same technique will be applied to clean the marble surfaces at different monuments as and when the necessity arises.

This technique is internationally recognized and conforms to guidelines in conservation Manual / International Charters.
