A STUDY OF ACRYLIC DISPERSIONS USED IN THE TREATMENT OF PAINTINGS

Michael C. Duffy


ABSTRACT—A series of simple tests studied the properties of five acrylic emulsion adhesives: Plextol B500, Rhoplex AC 33 and AC 234, and Lascaux 360 HV and 498 HV. Properties such as peel strength, yellowing, and solubility were investigated to assess the practicality of these products' use in the treatment of paintings with regard to their aging characteristics.
