In a research done by P. Rudniewski (Zur Alterungsbestandigkeit von
Japanischen Seidenpapieren und Japanpapieren, published in Restauro
1991 nr. 1 and 3) several Japanese tissue and woodcut papers are
tested for their use in conservation. As accelerated ageing is an
important tool to determine whether paper is suitable for long-term
application the papers that were tested and approved are likely to
be considered as "permanent". To my knowledge there are (at this
moment) no official standards for permanent repair-papers.
