The Hungarian section of the Technical Association of the Pulp and
Paper Industry (PNyME), together with the International Association
of Book and Paper Conservators (IADA), will host an international
conference at the National Library of Hungary at Budapest. The
conference under the heading 'Attaching and Releasing' will take
place from 25 to 27 May 2005. The aim of this conference is to
inform book and paper conservators on recent developments on the
subject of adhesives. Interesting projects like the "Tapes and
Heat-set Tissues Project" of the Canadian Conservation Institute
will be introduced. Important issues of historic adhesives like
starch and gelatin will be discussed: art technology, physical and
chemical properties as well as the subject of their visible
identification. Jun-Funori as a relatively new consolidant will be
introduced both, from the scientific as well as the practical
application point of view. The use of enzymes will be addressed by
several speakers. The focus of the lectures is practice orientated,
in order to meet the expectations of the conferences target group.
