Subject: Klucel

I have received an enquiry from a book conservator without internet
access regarding the use of Hydroxypropyl cellulose (also known as
Klucel G or Klucel E) as a consolidant on a calf skin binding.

The conservator wishes to apply Klucel G as a 4% solution in
isopropyl alcohol but is hesitant as to the actual means of dilution
in such a solvent. Can anyone with practical experience of using
Klucel E or G provide some guidance.

Whilst both our offices here in the UK and Springfield, Virginia
have a host of technical and related information including MSDS data
on both grades of Klucel we have nothing pertaining to the actual
means of the dilution of this product.
