The best of IBIX® technology for comfort and effectiveness in the field of sandblasting, condensed into a single system within everyone's reach.


IBIX® PHOENIX is the latest innovation including all the best of IBIX® edge technology in the field of media blasting and selective micro-air-abrasive cleaning, both in terms of comfort and effectiveness. In particular, the main features of the system are the following:

  • Time and material savings for the user;
  • Best practice for use and settings adjusting;
  • Quick discharge with funnel without overturning the machine;
  • Larger wheels, for greater mobility on site.



Green Conservation of Cultural Heritage has been the first international forum for cross-disciplinary research on green and cultural heritage.

As in all the operating fields, even in the field of restoration, it is time to question the environmental sustainability of the used systems. Toxicity of solvents, chemical mixtures and biocidal products can be harmful to restorers operating on-site and in indoor environments, often without adequate ventilation. Moreover, the disposal of chemical waste could represent a threat to the natural environment, the operators and even people unrelated to the ongoing procedures.

Therefore, biotechnology applications, nano-based and innovative materials are alternative solutions for a more sustainable conservation practice, this vision will be increasingly important in the recovery and preservation of historical assets. for this reason the aim of the conference was to promote a mindful consideration of ecological, economic and social aspects of conservation practice. IBIX, always attentive to the issues related to the environment respect and to the operators safety, could not miss the meeting.

The conference was a great opportunity to present the innovative scientific method promoted by IBIX in the field of conservation. The method is based on "in situ" diagnostics, carried out with the IBIX Mobile Lab.

The analysis carried out directly on the construction site allow analytical steps to the determinate the subsequent cleaning and treatment phases and to select the most suitable materials for protecting and restoring surfaces, according to a philosophy that considers Ecology like one of the basic principles of the IBIX system. The used materials are, in fact, non-toxic and non polluting, oriented to the philosophy promoted by the Forum towards the future and the innovation of technologies dedicated to restoration.

IBIX is proud to announce that Mrs. Caterina Giovannini - Chief Esecutive of IBIX - has been elected to the board of APT (Association for Preservation Technology International), the international organisation that has been promoting restoration and conservation of cultural heritage globally for over 30 years.

Managing Director of IBIX SRL since the year 2000, Caterina Giovannini has been in executive position in Assorestaro's, the Italian Association of Restoration, since 2009, first as President, then as Vice President and currently as Director and Treasurer. The long-standing associative experience will now be put to the service of this new major international project.

"I would like to join the Board of APT to help enhance and foster international partnerships between like minded professionals in Italy and abroad. I would like to help reinforce the cooperation between Italian and APT members as preservation technology specialists and the exchange of information and ideas about preservation technology".

With these words Mrs. Giovannini introduced herself to the Association, declaring the will to bring the world of Italian Conservation closer to the opportunities offered by the international environment, in line with the spirit that has always animated the activities of APT.

Apt's activities have always been an opportunity for the establishment of networks and collaborations at an international level. The association brings together members from over 30 countries all over the world, combining personalities in every field of knowledge: restorers, architects, engineers, entrepreneurs, craftsmen, developers, university professors, historians, landscape architects, students, technicians and other figures directly or indirectly involved in the world of conservation and restoration. The plurality of experiences that converge in the activities of the organization and the heterogeneous origin of the members make Apt's initiatives a fulcrum of innovation and meeting, in the form of plurality and profitable exchange of ideas and knowledge.

The global character of Apt's initiatives, with its renowned publications, conferences, training courses, awards and scholarships, make the Association the world's first and most important conservation network.

Entering the Board of Directors of APT represents an extraordinary acknowledgment for IBIX's ongoing business and for his commitment to the preservation and recovery of cultural heritage in Italy and all over the world. This success, crowning the almost twenty years of work of the company, involved in the restoration of some of the most important monuments at international level, from the Eiffel Tower to the Trevi Fountain, to name just a few of the best known, and that, far from interrupting this constant commitment, it will take this important opportunity to intensify its efforts in the promotion and maintenance of Architectural Heritage, from the small local realities - which our Country has plenty of - to the monuments that symbolize the great metropolises around the world.
