As you know "better" is relative and is dependent upon whether it is more suitable for your application than others, and that is why it is always best to test products' suitability for your application. We will have more technical information about the product during its release.

VAE is more easily reversible than acrylic resins and offers some propeties different from acrylic.


I would expect, that VAE has some different properties, but is it only "different" or is it also "better"? You see, I'm unsure, wether to buy Lascaux adhesive or wait for yours, when it is released.

Also, when you release your adhesive, it would be helpful to make a video about its application; something similar to this: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ggB1veQmwNU

Acrylic adhesives, such as the Lascaux adhesives, and vinyl acetate/ethylene (VAE) adhesives, which is the type we will be releasing in about 30 days, are suitable for adhering fabric and paper to solid substrates, such as metal, and wood. Our adhesive is not an acrylic adhesive and is based on a VAE resin tested and used by conservation scientists. It has performed well in artificial aging tests.


And what is the difference between acrylic and VAE adhesives, apart from chemical composition? Does VAE resin offer any advantage over acrylic?

Hi George,

 

I agree that BEVA film is too elaborate (a hot press seems the only way to get the correct temp) and I've also found BEVA too easy to pull up.   Would Lascaux, as well as your soon to be released adhesive, be good options for adhering cloth to an aluminum panel? How about in a painting constructed of wood-based panel, cloth, traditional gesso, egg tempera - any conflicts of interest, so to speak, between Lascaux (or your adhesive) and any of those materials?

Yes, that is also a reasonable alternative. We will introduce our own brand of adhesive for this purpose by the end of March,

I suppose BEVA 371 Film is good product, but the application seems to be a bit elaborate. Isn't there any alternative, which could be applied using a brush?

What about e.g. Lascaux Glues; has anybody tried them? http://www.kremer-pigmente.com/en/mediums-binders-und-glues/glues/lascaux-glue/
