Polyester resin objects

From: Meghan Mackey <mtmackey>

I am looking for input from anyone with experience working with cast
polyester resin objects, especially tacky (as in sticky) polyester

An installation of over 200 cast polyester resin books made between
1975 and 2003 is being cleaned and readied for installation. Many of
the books have tacky surfaces.  This has caused dust and grime to
adhere to the books.  In addition, a pattern has been left on the
surface by a Tyvek and bubble wrap used to wrap the individual books
for shipment.  In addition, fragments of the cast objects have
broken off and need to be joined.
