018. (Objects) Development of a User-Driven Adhesives Database

The quantity of adhesives that are currently used within conservation is both a blessing and curse to conservators. The immense number of adhesives available provide the potential for tailoring adhesives to a particular application, however this same variety can present a paralyzing wealth of choice to conservators. We are developing a user-driven database to share the properties of adhesives used in conservation. This will assist conservators in making choices about new adhesives. The study of the rheological properties of conservation adhesives, in concert with AFM, light microscopy and mechanical testing forms the basis of our research. This research builds on past research that has been done by conservators and scientists, bringing industry scientists to the table.
