I suggest you read:

    Wouters, Jan; Gancedo, Gely; Peckstadt, An; Watteeuw, Lieve.
    "The Codex Eyckensis, an illuminated manuscript on parchment
    from the 8th century AD.  Laboratory investigation and removal
    of a 30 year old PVC lamination"
    in ICOM Committee for Conservation, 9th triennial meeting,
    Dresden, German Democratic Republic, 26-31 August 1990


    Wouters, Jan; Gancedo, Gely; Peckstadt, An; Watteeuw, Lieve.
    "The conservation of the Codex Eyckensis: the evolution of the
    project and the assessment of materials and adhesives for the
    repair of parchment"
    in The Paper Conservator, Vol 16 (1992), 67-77

This is a very thorough investigation of the problem of a laminated
parchment manuscript, how to reverse the lamination, and subsequent
treatment and consolidation of the parchment.
