ACRYLIC RESIN PARALOID B72

The acrylic, thermoplastic resin Paraloid B72 has been used in the conservation of works of art since 1950. It does not become insoluble or degrade significantly in normal conditions of exposure. It has therefore become a standard of stability, a Feller class A material. Depending on the thinning rate can be used for consolidation, adhesion or as a protective film.

The uses suggested for B72 include: hot melt adhesive for paper, consolidant for matte pigments, lacquer work and wood, facing for marquetery and coating for iron.
