Sympatex laminate is our new addition to the art conservation world. Sympatex is a moisture permeable material. Made of 100% polyester it is a non-porous membrane applied to a polyester nonwoven. 



Sympatex is ideally used for humidification, allowing humidity to reach the object (photograph, paper, parchment, etc) without wetting it. Often used as an easy and inexpensive technique for the humidification method of removing residual adhesive, old linings and stains from water sensitive objects. 



Sympatex is windproof, waterproof, breathable, washable and dry cleanable. It can also be ultrasonically and thermally welded. The filament construction provides added strength and minimizes fiber migration. 



Sympatex is available in two formulas. While the membrane stays the same in both, the backing polyester material varies in gram weight.
