Re: [BKARTS] filmoplast v. lineco/CCI research on tape and heat-set products
Transparent Mending Tape would be the item in question
I haven't used enough filmoplast to know the comparable product.

Jane Down contributes this information to the recent thread on the
archival qualities of filmoplast v. lineco repair tape (original query
for my purposes I recommend Lineco's document repair tape, since it is
and the object of the repair will be to prevent further damage.
the repair can always be reversed later on.
but i don't have a tangible reason to recommend one over the other. ,
Jane Down also gave an update on CCI's research on tape and heat-set
products related to the following post.
I found the message below yours in this message on the cool site which
indicates that the CCI in Ottawa was going to start testing in 2001 but
haven't found any results yet. DOes anyone else have a link to the
from Jane Down
In our research project on Tapes and Heat-set Tissues (THST), we
included 6 filmoplast products ...
and 7 Lineco products ....
Gummed Paper Hinging
Gummed Japanese Hunging Paper, Hayaku
Gummed Linen Hinging Tape
Transparent Mending Tape
Self-Adhesive Linen Hinging Tape
Self-Adhesive Frame Sealing Tape (Gray and White)
"Heat-set" Hinging/Repair Tissue.
To which products do you specifically refer? It is difficult to answer
your question without knowing to which specific products you refer.
Send me the specific names and I will let you know what we have found
out so far.
You might have heard that CCI has been undergoing some major
renovations for the last 4 years. Because of this we have not had
access to our labs and many research projects have been put on hold
pending completion of the renovations. This has been the fate of the
THST project .... it is on hold. We did do the screening of the tapes
and tissues and this I wrote up in PapierRestaurierung, vol 7, no 1,
pp. 13-17, 2006. But I have not been able to start the preliminary
testing nor makeup any samples for the comprehensive testing as I have
no lab and nowhere to put the samples. I am told that the renovations
are nearly over and we should have access to our labs soon. I hope to
start the preliminary testing by the fall. It seems amazing that we
started this project over 4 years ago and have only the screening
program finished. But such are the conditions at CCI.
In the screening program, we analysed all components of the products
and did a pH measurement on each. The PapierRestaurierung paper only
lists the products that we chose for the comprehensive testing so if
you would like to know the results of other products, please send me
your list of products and I will see if we tested them and send you
Hope this is helpful to you.
