Conservation Adhesives

Adhesives are the foundation of most art conservation and restoration projects. Choosing the correct adhesive for a project typically requires careful evaluation and testing, with a deep understanding as to what caused the problem and the needed characteristics the adhesive needs to perform in the treatment process. All products we sell have been well vetted in the professional art conservation community. Typically this means they have excellent aging characteristics and are reversible. The concept of reversibility (which should not be confused with permanent) is that should a treatment need to be undone because of circumstances at a later date, the adhesive can be removed completely with the use of an appropriate solvent or technique.
