Subject: Adhesives

Has anyone had experience of adhering Volara or Plastazote LD45 to
canvas and paper.

A conservator without access to the internet has sought guidance in
locating a dry or wet adhesive with suitable archival specifications
that will neither yellow nor  unduly deteriorate over time.

The adhesive must not effect the physical composition of any of the
substrates it is adhered to and it will be used to adhere
polyethylene foam to both canvas and paper.

Initial thoughts were to suggest Paraloid/Acryloid B72 but I am not
sure whether B72 would work with polyethylene foam products.
