BV-GEL-G gallon 82.00

BEVA® GEL, gallon

An aqueous dispersion of acrylic and EVA resins producing a strong contact adhesive, requiring light pressure for adhesion. Because of its thick consistency it is useful for vertical applications, as when adhering murals. Useful in lining very large paintings, where the use of heat activated adhesives is not an option. No water-based adhesive should be applied directly to the reverse of any canvas painting - apply BEVA® 371 Solution as an isolating coat. Reversible.

ULTRAVIOLET LAMP PRODUCTS

In a darkened room, longwave UV lamps reveal alterations to oil paintings, such as overpainting, repairs and false signatures that are normally invisible in daylight. Anyone who is collecting or restoring fine art, furniture, clocks, books, bronzes, ivory, porcelain, china, decoys, etc., should first examine the work to see what may have been done previously. Informed decisions can then be made regarding any purchase or restoration. When framing paper-borne art it is wise to check for active fungi, which can cause foxing (small dark spots) on the paper art. No dealer, collector, or restorer in art or artifacts should be without this valuable aid. See our article on the use of UV light for inspecting art and UV inspection photos for more information.
