Jens Steffen Patt: Solvent-Loaded HWR Nanorestore Gel®: Possibilities and Limitations for Varnish Removal Back
Language: Original   -   Translation

Abstract: This thesis deals with the varnish reduction by solvent loaded HWR Nanorestore Gel® compresses. The aim of this study is to investigate the behavior of the compresses in the solvent-loaded state. The results of the work should help in the selection of a compress system for varnish reduction.
In order to achieve this goal, a comprehensive literature review was conducted to survey the current re-search on the subject and to collect relevant findings. Subsequently, various test series of varnish reduc-tions were carried out on a test specimen manufactured for this purpose. The Nanorestore Gel® com-presses were compared with Evolon CR thin. In addition, color measurement, multispectral images of the test specimens and VIS images of the gel compresses were evaluated. Selectet solvent composition were determined with FTIRanalysis.
The tests carried out within the framework of this series of tests, come to unambiguous results. These answer the question posed by the work in the context of the limitation by the unaged plate.
The findings of this work have potential practical applications for restorers in the selection of compress systems for solvent-based varnish reduction of sensitive image layers.
