Subject: Adhesives for bone

Adhesives for bone

From: Stephen Koob <koobs>
Date: Tuesday, October 22, 1996
This is in response to Julie Eklund's inquiry on what adhesives to use for

I recommend using Acryloid B-72 adhesive.  Bones should be clean and
dry; fragile or friable bone should be consolidated before any
attempts at joining are done.  I also suggest untreated bone samples
be put aside for analytical studies.
