Is the solvent Napthol, 'cut' 50:50 with BEVA 371b solution to adhere linen to Aluminum Composite Material, harmful to the un-sized & un-primed side of the linen (on the reverse side of the properly-prepared canvas being attached to the ACM) onto which it is applied?

EditDeleteModerator AnswerNo the naptha solvent will not harm linen. Solvents completely evaporate and leave nothing to cause damage in the future. A primary reason for sizing is to prevent the absorption of the oil component into the canvas fibers causing deterioration and rotting.
