    Art Conservation Topics Sizes and Adhesives Solvents and Thinners
    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?

Answers and Comments

  • 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.
