Subject: Fill materials for glass

Fill materials for glass

From: Irena Calinescu <irenac>

As the facilitator to Sandra Davison, who is preparing a review
article on transparent/translucent fill materials used in glass
restoration for an upcoming JAIC, I am trying to gather information
on this topic.

I would appreciate hearing from anyone who has found *new* materials
or techniques for this application, or successfully modified
existing ones (i.e. commonly used epoxies--Hxtal and Ablebond--or
polyester resins, etc...) I have searched AATA and CIN, and have
found nothing new. If you know of any literature that may have
escaped my attention, or if you have first hand experience with such
a material, please let me know. Many thanks in advance,
