Take all the hassle out of mixing up your own Paraloid™ solutions at home. 10% wt/vol Paraloid B-72 premixed in acetone available in 500ml and 1000ml bottles. No additives, no nasties, just straight up Paraloid in Acetone ready to use out of the bottle.
A 10% solution can be used as a thicker consolidant or a varnish. The solution can be further diluted as per user requirements.
In fossil preparation, we use very thin solutions of Paraloid B-72 to consolidate or impregnate rocks and fossils, essentially turning them to plastic. Repeat applications of 2-5% wt/vol solutions in acetone are frequently used to consolidate, followed by a 5-10% wt/vol solution to seal the surface. A 10% solution can also act as a removable varnish.
