Subject: Incralac


From: George Bailey <george.bailey>
Date: Friday, August 18, 2006
For decades Incralac (made in Australia by Wattyl) has been the
preferred coating for silver, copper and copper alloys at the
Austalian War Memorial. Our preferred method of application is dip
coating. Recently, however, Wattyl has ceased supplying Incralac in
500 ml and 1 litre tins, and now only supplies it in aerosol cans.

Can anyone recommend a viable alternative that is available in

I recently read an abstract that recommended the use of Agateen in
the USA. Can anyone provide me with more information about this
