Research on tape and heat-set products

From: Jane Down <jane_down>

The Canadian Conservation Institute (CCI) is initiating a project on
Tapes and Heat-Set Tissues/Products. This project will look at
various tapes and heat-set products for their suitability and
durability for various conservation applications relating to paper.

Initially, we are collecting many different products which we will
put through a screening program to arrange them into like groups so
that we can select a few representative ones to undergo the full
scale testing. The full scale testing is still being worked through
but should involve tests on how innocuous the products are to
substrates, how removable they are and user friendly during
application, as well as tests on long term strength of all
components and bond strength to certain substrates.

Flexibility/brittleness will be investigated, as well as colour
change and carrier suitability. We will be aging the products in the
dark and under lights according to methods already in place. Our
initial task, right now, is to try to gather all potential products
for the screening program.

The following is the list of products that we have collected so far
(see below). If there are products that you use that are not on the
list, we would be very happy to include them in the initial
screening program. Please contact us immediately with full details
of the omitted product (name, where it can be ordered, how you use
the product, data sheets).

This project is set to run for several years but results will be
published at intervals as they become available. We thank you in
advance for helping to make the list as complete as possible.
