Re: [BKARTS] A question about Filmoplast-P

1. Filmoplast is pressure sensitive, i.e. does not require adhesive.

2. It does yellow a little with age, but many papers do without affecting properties. Have some wonderful high quality Japanese paper that has a greenish tiint, but mellows to a wonderful creamy color that blends in wonderfully.

3. Gudy-O is a cold mount adhesive, acrylic-based like its 3m counterpart. It is not a tape. From the TALAS site:

"A thin adhesive film which acts like a double-sided tape with no substrate, just the adhesive alone. As the roll is unwound, the adhesive side is exposed (pictured). The adhesive side is attached, burnished and trimmed. The reverse side is exposed by stripping off the release paper, attaching it and reburnishing to make full contact. It is a dry mount adhesive recommended for mounting silk on mats, and for mounting prints and potographs without the need for a dry mount press. Acid free (pH 7), passed the photo activity test (PAT), and will not dry out or discolor with age. Can be reversed by jelling the adhesive with acetone or zylene and then removed by rubbing."

What about Gudy-O? How does it compare to Filmoplast?
