Suggested Revisions[edit source]

-Comments from 2009 PCC Task Force: This is a low priority chapter for revision. It is large and well-developed with a usefully-formatted table of contents. No compilers are listed in the back.

I replaced the old Library of Congress wheat starch paste recipe (under Treatment Variations - Vegetable Adhesives - Starches - Preparation) with the recipe the Book Conservation and Paper Conservation Sections began using in 2015.--Kkelly (talk) 08:48, 21 March 2016 (CDT)

Some good additions to this page: --Kkelly (talk) 12:31, 2 August 2016 (CDT)

  • Lascaux303
  • check completeness of PVAc formulations (what numbers of Jade are listed?)
  • Add more about agarose and other gels, or better yet, move to their own page with links
  • Differential Klucel G and other Klucels.
  • Talk more about solvent-set and reactivaed tissues.
  • Discuss different grades of gelatin

Review the recommendations on adding thymol to rice or wheat starch paste as a preservative, as this is not in common use anymore.--Kkelly (talk) 10:18, 19 September 2017 (CDT)
