PLEXISOL P550 - DEGALAN

A 40% solution of an acrylic resin based on Butyl Methacrylate in White spirit 100°/140°C.

 

It is used as a consolidant of paint films. Degalan P 550 can be diluted with esters, ketones, aromatic, aliphatic and chlorinated hydrocarbons.

 

 Ιt is only partially miscible with alcohol.

 

 

For conservation and consolidation of paint and ground layers on paintings on canvas, a 5-10% solution  (1:4 to 1:9 in White Spirit) is used. After drying of the resin, the painting can be flattened under light pressure and heat (approx. 40° C). Excess resin is removed afterwards with White Spirit. When used highly diluted, this resin does not alter matt paint layers.

 

For consolidation of chalking paint layers on mural paintings (distemper, casein or fresco painting), a solution of 3-5% can be applied to the required degree of saturation. Excess resin is to be removed with White Spirit.

 

Plexisol P 550-40% gloss is also suitable as an adhesive for lining fine textiles. A 10% solution in White Spirit is either sprayed onto the lining fabric or onto both sides of an intermediate support.

 

After drying of the resin, proceed with the lining at approx. 45°C and under light pressure.
