Limited Capacity filling up

B-72 was introduced for use as an adhesive by Stephen Koob in 1986, and has unfortunately not been used to its full potential (as evidenced by recent papers and comments at the 2017 Annual Meeting). Workshop participants will be introduced to a new method of preparation that allows conservation professionals to easily make up the adhesive to varying concentrations for use on a variety of materials (primarily ceramics, glass, stone, bone, ivory, and even some wood). The prepared adhesive is then poured into empty adhesive tubes, which are then closed and labeled for use.

The workshop will include a brief presentation on the use of solvent adhesives, particularly focusing on Paraloid B-72. The presentation will be followed by demonstrations of proper preparation (different consistencies for different materials, such as ceramics, glass, bone, wood) and methods of application (and clean-up). Participants will also gain hands-on experience assembling broken ceramics, glass, and other materials.
