Subject: Adhesive for metal

Adhesive for metal

From: Mark Ryan <ginger1612>
Date: Friday, August 7, 1998
I am posting this on behalf of a friend (Mark Ryan, Lubbock Lake
Landmark Research Lab, Texas Tech University, Lubbock, TX):

    Several historic metal objects have been excavated from an area
    at the lubbock Lake Landmark Historic Site.  These artifacts are
    fragmented, and in fairly fragile shape.  There is also
    extensive oxidation throughout.

    Could anyone with experience with metals suggest an adhesive to
    conjoin the pieces, and if an adhesive is not appropriate, could
    anyone suggest a method whereby the pieces could be stabilized?
