Klebstoffgitter für die restauratorische Verklebung von Leinwandgemälden

Adhesive meshes are an innovative adhesive system for the gentle bonding of canvas paintings.


Course of action

This research project aims to produce adhesive meshes from protein glues, methylcelluloses and acrylates. Instead of the usual liquid application of these adhesives, they are used as fine, flexible nets that can be positioned when dry and then activated with moisture or solvents. This enables homogeneous adhesion without the adhesive penetrating uncontrolled into the canvas. The project pursues the development of application strategies and the assessment of adhesive characteristics.
