5.. The resin which had the greatest degree of transparency, ease of application and extended use as a conservation material was Akemi transparent flowing polyester resin. Akemi Plastics, Incorporated, 5265 S. Clinton Trail, Eaton Rapids, Michigan 48827; distributed by: Wood & Stone, Inc., 5920 Old Saw Mill Road, Fairfax, Virginia 22030.

6.. Several resins were found to have the desired bulk properties applicable to this procedure and were used for experimentation (Voss Chemie (GTS) clear resin, Interlux 800 clear resin (International Paint Co.), Ren RP-103 resin, Akemi transparent flowing resin, Everfix epoxy resin, and EPO-TEK 301 resin).

7.. Rhoplex AC-234 Code #6-4134, Rohm & Hass Company, Independence Mall West, Philadelphia, Pa. 19105.

8.. The quantity of resin has been calculated to be 3.2 oz./FT2 or 1800 gms/M2.
