I would say probably not, from the standpoint of my experience with it.
#1 - it seems pretty much irreversible without damage to the paper. Used
in thin quantities I have had it fail to adhere completely. There is
another glue, Berto Glue, sold by a company in Oregon, I think, which is
similar, and stays tackier, but I would doubt that it would be archival
None of the main library suppliers - Demco, Gaylore, University Products -
list it. A number of craft stores carry it, such as Aaron Bros., Standard
Brands, etc. Also, nearly any company selling picture framing supplies
will have it. One, that I know of, is:
Valley Moulding Company, 10708 Vanowen St., North Hollywood, CA 92121. Ph.
80-769-5656. It comes in quart and gallon jars, and generally keeps very
However, I would not use it on anything I thought important. Would not
use it, for instance, in adhering book-cloth or leather to boards, or
tipping pages into a book. Because of its viscosity, (almost like peanut
butter, but gummier) it is very difficult to spread evenly or efficiently
I saw a framer, once, mounting posters on fome-core with Berto Glue, which
is about the same consistency, but he spread it on a glass, and applied it
with a brayer, then ran the whole thing through a laminating roller outfit
he had. Not very practical for us.
