41.1 New Products - Nano Estel: research in progress

Nano Estel: research in progress
Defining Nano Estel as a "new product" is a little bit forced, since that product has been added to our catalog in 2011. However, it is hardly surprising that restoration sector is rather "conservative" toward novelties.

39.2 Chemistry and research: Agar-Art: we gained a better understanding

Some years ago, when we added agar-agar to our catalogue, there was a lack of knowledge about the full range of its properties. After testing a multitude of grades available on the market, we finally could identify and choose the best grade of agar-agar that perfectly matches with our goals; that is “effective in cleaning and easy to be removed”: Agar-Art was born!

36.1 I am here too- When manganese turns into an enemy

For over 20 years C.T.S. has promoted and provided a unique product which is very popular among the restorers working on finds from archaeological sites. It is the well known B.D.G. 86, a ready-to-use neutral solution based on hydroxylammonium chloride and hydrazine (redox agents) and that is capable to clean stains of manganese.

36.2 Chemistry and research- keeping a close watch on vinyl based resins

Despite the entry of synthetic resins such as aliphatic, urea-aldehyde, polyoxazole, that are characterized by high levels of stability and reversibility, vinyl based resins are still widely used in restoration because they gave birth to a multitude of adhesives and varnishes and consolidants that keep on excelling for specific applications. Their strength is the adhesive property, in fact Beva 371 is the most famous product. Nevertheless we cannot leave out of account white glue (Vinavil) for woody features and polyvinyl alcohol used as fixative for paint films of murals

34.3 New Products - The leather never goes out of fashion

Rather than a new product, this article from the Bulletin CTS has an old product, but hard to find, so much so that his return on the market represents a real novelty. We talk about the high quality leather for bookbinding and restoration.
