Gum Arabic/ Aquazol Developmental Paints/ Thin Film Studies


A paint binding formulation of Aquazol ( commercial polyamide used in art restoration) and gum arabic in water. A plastic pan holds a paint sample on paper along with thin films of a red paint and a clear thin film sample. The one sq. inch thin film only has one very small blister. Mohr scale hardness to be determined only with spectral studies after UV exposure. The binding solution is expected to be stable for months. A small amount of glycerol was added to the solution as plasticizer.
