Consolidating stone

From: Mark Vine <100436.3447>

What type of equipment is available for injecting Paraloid B72
dissolved in acetone into stone for consolidation purposes. This
question is placed on behalf of a conservator without access to the
internet. The project in question involves a number of large stone
blocks that must remain outside in situ during the course of
consolidation work.

The conservator fears that conventional devices,such as syringes
will not provide sufficient penetration due to the depth of some of
the areas that need to be filled.The equipment needs to be insulated
to ensure resistance to the solvent being used and sufficiently
portable for external use, often at a height.
