Adhesives pastes & Consolidants

Corn Starch Powder

Chemically neutral corn starch powder, offering high viscosity and brightness.

Ready-prepared corn starch paste is available but subject to a minimum order of 300kg.

Wheat Starch Powder

European wheat starch powder producing a traditional-style paste generally used for Japanese restoration methods. When dry this adhesive is transparent and reversible with water. It can be mixed with methycellulose for additional flexibility.

Ready-prepared wheat starch paste is available but subject to a minimum order of 300kg.

Rice Starch Powder

Offering a great fluidity and greater whiteness than Corn Starch.

Ready-prepared rice starch paste is available but subject to a minimum order of 300kg.

Archival Aids Conservation Adhesive

Conservation Adhesive is a solution of Paraloid B72 in acetone made in accordance with Stephen Knobbs original formulation published in ŒStudies in Conservation Vol 31, Feb. 1986 pp. 7-14. Suitable for glass, ceramics etc.

Yuki Flakes, Ready-Cooked Japanese Tapioca Starch

A quick and easy-to-prepare, nonionic, Japanese Tapioca starch which has been pre-cooked and freeze-dried, producing white, snow-like flakes that can easily be dissolved in cold water to produce a smooth, pH-neutral paste for conservation and bookbinding. It can be used with Japanese and other tissue papers for lining and repair of fragile documents and books. It can also be used by framers requiring a safe but quickly prepared adhesive for artwork hinges using Japanese paper.

Laponite Powder

Inorganic and synthetic product with a structure very similar to natural clay which gives its absorbent properties. Laponite is a white powder, which, when mixed with water, forms a Œthixotropic gel (it softens while stirring and hardens once again at rest). When a poultice is applied to porous surfaces, Laponite gel gives moisture without tidelines. The gel can also be used with solvents.

Laponite Gel

The Laponite gel is an inorganic synthesis which has adsorption properties. This is a version ready to use, avoiding the problems of dosing and the quality of solvents such as water. It is produced in a laboratory in small, precisely-controlled batches.

Natural Clay

Natural Clay mixed with water for the removal of glue residue. This is offered in a ready-to-use tube, avoiding the problems of dosing and the quality of solvents such as water. It is produced in a laboratory in small precisely-controlled batches.

Tylose MH300P

Metylcellulose in the form of white powder. Neutral and reversible chemically. High viscosity in low concentration, highly resistant to biological degradation, non-toxic, stable pH. Stored in a dry atmosphere and at room temperature Tylose has a long shelf-life. Like paper, it absorbs water in moist air and gives off water in dry air. Totally transparent when dry. Its tack is less than starch paste, but it gives more flexibility and dries slower. Tylose can be mixed with starch paste to combine the flexibility of the first and the good tack of the second.

Klucel G/E (Hydroxypropylcellulose)

A non-ionic cellulose ether with a remarkable combination of properties making it of great interest to the book conservator for use as a consolidant. Highly surface-active. Extremely flexible without plasticisers in films and coatings. Available in medium-viscosity(G) and also now in a lowviscosity( E) quality. Klucel E may be subject to availability.

Specifications

  • pH5 to 8.5 (1.5% solution)
  • Ash content O.5% max (calculated as Na2SO4 )
  • Viscosity (2% solution): 150 Ã 400MPAS
  • Soluble in water below 38°C (insoluble in water above 40°C)
  • Soluble in many polar organic solvents e.g. methyl alcohol, ethyl alcohol, isopropyl alcohol (95%)
  • Insoluble in toluene, xylene, trichloroethylene
Applications
  • Used as a consolidant in book conservation.

Sodium CMC Carboxymethyl Cellulose Gabrosa P200G Wallpaper Adhesive

A granular, dry-powder wallpaper adhesive soluble in water. Technical Grade >70% Purity. The recommended concentration is 1.925%. A 25kg bag should be sufficient to stick 1400 rolls of lightweight paper. For blown vinyl papers it is recommended that the concentration be increased to 2.27% which will make 1100 litres of paste and would stick between 1000 and 1200 rolls of paper.

Culminal MC2000 Methylcellulose

Culminal Methylcellulose derivatives are cellulose ethers which, when dissolved in water, offer a variety of functional properties. Culminal products are granular powders and are used as thickeners, protective colloids, stabilisers, suspension aids and water-retention agents in many industrial applications. Culminal is easily soluble in cold water though not soluble in hot water.

Culminal is a non-ionic cellulose ether and is compatible with many surfactants and polymers such as starch, guar and alginates. Solutions of Culminal are pseudoplastic, with some solutions showing thixotropy. The solution viscosity is a function of the temperature; as the latter increases viscosity decreases.

When reaching the gel temperature gelling and flocculation of the polymer will occur. This process is reversible upon cooling. Viscosity is nearly independent of the pH over a wide range. Culminal cellulose ethers have many functional properties, such as water-retention, thickening and stabilizing action, binding ability, adhesion, protective colloid, suspension effect and emulsion stabilisation and film formation.

Jin Shofu Paste

For making traditional Japanese double-refined wheat starch paste. Mix approximately 1 part Jin Shofu to 3 or 4 parts water.

Heat mixture over a low flame and stir continuously. When it becomes clear remove it from the heat and let it cool before using. A finer paste can be obtained by using a Norikoshi sieve. The mixed paste can be stored in plastic or glass jars in a refrigerator.

Rice Starch Powder

Offering a great fluidity and greater whiteness than Corn Starch. Ready-prepared rice starch paste is available but subject to a minimum order of 300kg.

Long-Life Sterilised Wheat Starch Paste

A ready-to-use, laboratory-made sterilised wheat starch paste in an aerosol spray which may keep for up to two years.

Bookbinders Starch Paste

A starch paste for bookbinding, mounting and repair. An integral fungicide improves this product’s shelf life. pH6 gluten free.
