Subject: Questionnaire on adhering polypropylene and polyethylene

Questionnaire on adhering polypropylene and polyethylene

From: Anouk Verbeek <anoukverbeek89<-at->

I am currently writing my master thesis on the use of recently
developed commercial adhesives (designed especially for adhering
polypropylene and polyethylene) and their suitability for modern art
conservation.

In my thesis, I would like to compare these commercial adhesives to
adhesives that are more common in restoration.  I would like to find
out what adhesives have been used by conservators and therefore I'd
like to ask you to fill out the following questionnaire:

    Have you ever had to adhere either polypropylene or
    polyethylene?

    What adhesive did you use?

    Did you modify the surface of the substrate in advance? (e.g.
    by plasma or corona treatment?)

    Was it successful? Were you satisfied with the results? Why
    (not)?
