Paraloid B-72 is an acrylic copolymer that has proven to be an almost ideal adhesive for numerous materials, especially ceramics and glass.  This material has notable conservation qualities, including stability and reversibility, commendable working properties, excellent adhesion and a fast setting time. However, these properties can easily be compromised by improper preparation and improper application. This seminar reviews the many ways that Paraloid B-72 adhesive can be prepared, modified, or manipulated to obtain efficient application as well as consistent and excellent results on glass, ceramics, stone, wood, bone, and ivory.
