Assessment of Treatments, Studies on Reversibility, and Performance of Innovative Restoration Strategies and Products
Swiss roundel, 1671, with scenes from the Life of St Francis (Burrell Collection, Reg N°. 45/530). Before and after restoration, involving epoxy resin to replace old strap lead repairs.
Note: These restorations using epoxy resin were carried out about 30 years ago and so are a valuable indicator of the effects of constant museum display in an artificially-lit display gallery on the long-term ageing of epoxy polymers.
