ICM UK (formerly Thermo Lignum UK) is a unique tool in heritage eating pest eradication. Integrated Contamination Management process is a low carbon, chemical free and completely ecological method to kill all stages of insect life in all kinds of materials.
The technology, developed over 30 years in Germany, has serviced museums, galleries and antique dealers in London since 1995.
The warm air technique gradually warm up objects in a sealed chamber whilst controlling the relative humidity, to ensure no exchange, loss or gain, of moisture occurs in hygroscopic artefacts which are often, by virtue of their materials, vulnerable to insect attack.
ICM is a daughter company to IPARC in Belgium.
