QUANTITATIVE STUDY: THE EFFECTS OF SIZED MATERIALS AND “DRYING TIME” IN THE USE OF LASCAUX 360 HV AS A LINING ADHESIVE

Danielle Allard, & Kenneth B. Katz


ABSTRACT—Empirical use of Lascaux 360 HV as a lining adhesive indicates that the bonds produced can vary significantly depending on the parameters chosen. In this research bond strengths of linings were quantitatively measured by peel and lap/shear tests. The influence of the amount of time between application of the adhesive and lining (1 hr. -vs- 24 hrs.) was evaluated as well as the effects of sizing applied on the original canvas and/or lining material. Results confirm significant quantitative changes in peel and lap/shear tests depending on the parameters chosen.
