“People know that paints and adhesives contain solvents and other chemicals and wrongly assume that they are environmentally unfriendly,” says HMG’s Managing Director, John Falder. “But our technology can extend the working life of many man-made objects, saving the raw materials otherwise needed to replace them, and help restore and preserve damaged, corroded or fragmented objects without affecting their historical importance, whether it’s a vintage vehicle or an archaeological find.”
Whereas HMG’s adhesives are designed to maintain the principles of reversibility, many of today’s epoxy resins and cyanoacrylate ‘super glues’ are virtually irreversible after use and their later removal can actually damage the object itself or even prevent future treatment.
The company’s conservation-grade glues are represented by HMG Heat & Waterproof Adhesive and HMG B72 Restoration Adhesive, which are renowned in archaeological circles worldwide and prized by museums, galleries, conservators and restorers for their technical performance. One of the guiding principles of interventive conservation is that of ‘reversibility’, whereby the object should be capable of being returned to its original state prior to intervention; and both HMG’s museum-grade adhesives are formulated to be permanently reversible and resealable in solvents, so that artefacts can be subsequently unglued for correcting mistakes, minor realignment or adding newly-found fragments. They also possess the correct levels of plasticity and viscosity necessary for good workability, desirable water-white transparency and non-yellowing characteristics, and excellent physical and chemical stability.
Widely used by the British Museum and the highly respected York Archaeological Trust, and their overseas counterparts, HMG adhesives are especially formulated for precision restoration and repair work and are equally prized for modelmaking and as arrow fletching glue. Their easy-to-control nozzles enable the exact amount to be dispensed and there is good all-round adhesion to most common materials, including ceramics, metal, wood, paper, leather and cloth.
