This adhesive was developed by Gustav A. Berger for coating substrates. Notable is the fact that it was specifically developed for conservation use, not adopted from other industries or selected from a standard adhesive line like so many of the adhesives used in the field. Decades of use and research have shown Beva solution to be both safe and effective.
Originally developed as a re-lining adhesive, it is equally useful for use on paper, textiles, or other material sensitive to staining. Use it to join textiles, to mount paper on canvas substrates, or to adhere canvas to wood. Application is easy using a brush or roller. Thinned, Beva solution can also be sprayed. It is removable with acetone (assuming that will not damage the item being treated). Non-hazardous, but not able to be shipped by air.
