Take all the hassle out of mixing up your own Paraloid™ solutions at home. Simply dilute this 20% solution as required. No additives, no nasties, just straight up Paraloid in Acetone ready to use out of the bottle. Conservation grade.
In fossil preparation, we use very thin solutions of Paraloid B-72 to consolidate or impregnate rocks and fossils, essentially turning them to plastic. Repeat applications of 2-5% wt/vol solutions in acetone are frequently used to consolidate, followed by a 5-10% wt/vol solution to seal the surface. A 10% solution can also act as a removable varnish. 20-30% solutions are used in chemical preparation as a barrier layer.
Suitable for fossils, minerals, rocks, metals, ceramics, wood and more. Not suitable for plastics and rubber.
