recomended adhesive for patches


Recommended Posts

I am sure this topic has been discussed in detail, but my search didn't reveal some of the questions i had

 

I have got a display I am looking to complete, involves several cut edge patches and flashes that I have spent quite a bit of time/energy getting together. anyhow I am looking to frame it but want to ask around before I do something that can't be undone (especially after reading some horror stories). At this point I am not sure it I am going to take it to a frame shop or not but if I decide to go that route I want to be sure they are using the correct stuff on it. whats the recomended adhesive used for rare patches? I have heard of people using silicone, velcro, or two sided tape but i'm leary of the long term effects.

 

is there a unique product designed especially for this use? Suggestions are welcome as well as advise as to what to watch out for

There is a good neutral product called "YES paste" which is archival.

 

Here is a good source for all such things:

Alternatively, though not strictly archival... would to be use VERY TINY dots of silicone glue - useful because it can be easily peeled off later. Emphasis would be on VERY TINY - no spreading. Not for use on anything made of paper, ever.

I simply use scotch tape to secure my patches on my boards and have been doing so for the past 20 years or so with no adverse effects whatsoever.

I use those little pieces of tape(don't know the correct term) that one can use to hold photos into a photoalbum.Works very good and are easy to remove.
