Glass plate negatives

From: Ingeborg Eggink <ieggink<-a>

I am working at the Public City Archive of Amsterdam, Netherlands,
as a trainee on conservation of broken gelatine dry-plate glass
negatives. The Archive has a lot of glass negatives in the
collection and the conservation and packing of these broken glass
negatives is now at hand.

We would like to use the sandwich-method (mounting the broken pieces
between new glass plates). I would like to know which type of glass
can be used best for the 'sandwich' (composition, thickness etc.) I
hope to find people with some experience with this conservation
method who could provide me with information and details.
