Book protection films with reduced initial adhesion

Our self-adhesive book protection films increase the lifespan of your books, protect against dirt and enable easy cleaning. The print colours of the protective covers are particularly brilliant due to the glossy surfaces. We work with solvent-free, ageing-resistant and permanently elastic acrylic adhesives, strictly ensuring that all raw materials are free of harmful additives and that they are characterised by excellent ageing resistance.

Magnesium carbonate in the adhesive neutralises acids that may arise and migrate into the adhesive layer when paper fibres in old papers degrade. The adhesive provides good adhesion with high bending stiffness, even repeated bending will not loosen the seal. The sealing temperature must be over 100°C. filmoplast® R is reversible. The lamination can be removed in a water bath or with alcohol.
Attention! If using alcohol, check the solvent-resistance of the paper first.

GORE-TEX® Laminate

The GORE-TEX® Laminate has been found to be useful in the treatment of moisture sensitive objects on paper, parchment, tracing paper and also photographs. A membrane made of ePTFE (expended polytetrafluoroethylene) is laminated to a non-woven polyester support fabric. It allows the passage of moisture as vapour but not as droplets and thus can be used successfully for controlled humidification. By means of the so-called sandwich method, objects on paper can be moisture and relaxed, old water soluble glues swollen and old backings removed without wetting the object. Thus this laminate can be used on objects with watersoluble dyes or colorants without causing running of the colorants. Further applications are also possible in the field of painting conservation, i.e. for the treatment of deformations of the paintlayer or the support. Due to the high surface tension of water, the low wettability and the small pore size (0.2 micron) of the GORE-TEX® membrane, water cannot penetrate the GORE-TEX® Laminate. The GORE-TEX® Laminate provides excellent potential for humidity control, safety, simplicity of application and versatility in the types of exposure agents that can be used.

Suggestions for Use

Normally, the object is placed between two layers of GORE-TEX® Laminates, the membrane side facing the object. This package is then placed on a damp blotting cardboard and covered with a sheet of Hostaphan film (Melinex). Some chemical agents which have no effect on GORE-TEX® Laminate:
a) Solvents: Dilute aqueous solutions of water-miscible organic solvents for treatment of paint layers (e.g. Acetone, Methanol, Ethanol, Propanol, Diacetone, Diacetone Alcohol)
b) Acid: dilute acid (e.g. CH3COOH) Alkali: dilute alkali (e.g.. NH4OH)
c) Bleach: hyrogen peroxide
