Beva 371 Film and Beva Tex


Beva Tex

We are pleased to add a new product to the popular Beva line. Beva Tex is sold as a roll 27" wide and 36" long. It consists of pH neutral Beva 371 at a thickness of 0.6 mils/ 15 microns applied to a non-woven polyester base (30 gm/ sq. meter or .95 oz./ yard). This is supported on silicone-coated polyester. It is designed for the conservation of works on paper, for use in fabric conservation, and in the conservation and restoration of paintings. It may also be used to mount and frame works of art. Beva Tex is acitvated at low temperature, between 150-160 degrees F (65-70 degrees C) and is reversible at the same temperature.


Beva 371 Film

This film version of Gustav Berger's famous solution comes sandwiched between a white, silicone-coated release sheet and a Mylar release sheet. It is popular for lining paintings and for textile and paper conservation. The transparent support makes it easy to cut the film to fit unusual shapes, as well as to properly position flaking paint before heat-activating the film. Activation is achieved using your choice of a tacking iron or hot air blower. Assuming that these do not harm the work involved, Beva 371 film can be reversed using hexane or acetone. Beva film is available in two thicknesses, the standard 2.5 mil, and a thinner 1.0 mil film. Recently, the manufacturer has expanded the options for sizes. The 1.0 mil is offered in the standard 27" x 20 foot rolls as well as a narrow roll, 1/2" wide and 39 yards long which is ideal for repairing small tears. The 2.5 mil is also offered in these sizes as well as in a third, wider roll measuring 54" x 20 feet.
