You might wish to consider a heat activated adhesive product called
Unsupported Archibond for bonding material to supportive corrugated

Unsupported Archibond is an acrylic blended adhesive, so thin that
for logistical reasons it is applied to a release layer to aid use.
The product underwent very thorough testing in the UK and France
several years ago by the major Conservation Laboratories in order
that it could be used to coat tissue and nylon fibre materials for
use as laminating products for newspapers and printed matter.

The pure adhesive in Unsupported Archibond has also been effectively
used as a consolidant for paper material undergoing aqueous
treatment, and is removable with a number of common spirit based
solvents used in conservation.

Full technical specifications and samples are available on request
from our plants in Springfield, Virginia, USA and here in Cowley,
Oxford, England.
