Synperonic A7 Solution
An alcohol ethoxylate 100% active solution introduced to replace the original 27% active ‘N’ grade which is widely and successfully used for a variety of conservation processes including as a detergent, wetting agent, surfactant, emulsifying and dispersing agent. Synperonic A7 is an alcohol ethoxylate and, like its predecessor ‘Synperonic N’, is a mild detergent generally used for the removal of tar and ground-in grime. In conservation, it has also been used as a wetting agent and to eradicate ground-in stains on a variety of substrates including textiles; paper; chinaware and porcelain; encaustic floor and fireplace tiles; and glass. ‘Synperonic A7’ is readily biodegradable, conforming to EEC directive 82/242.

PTDA Deacidification Solution
Deacidfication treatments for paper, PTDA solutions are nonaqueous treatments for preserving all types of paper and card. They are colourless, safe solutions which can be applied by dipping, spraying or brushing and are effective in neutralising existing acidity as they deposit an alkaline reserve throughout the paper which increases the life of documents by several times more than normal. They may also assist in cleaning and will provide a resistance against oxidative attack. They are simple to use, rapid and cost effective and avoid the problems associated with aqueous treatment methods especially as books may be treated whilst bound without any danger of swelling or breakage of the binding. Unlike previous formulations these PTDA solutions do not contain any CFC components, but otherwise the active ingredients remain the same and so in effect they have been in use for more than a decade by leading libraries and institutions throughout Europe, including the British Library and the Bibliotheque Nationale. Papers and documents treated by these solutions have been thoroughly tested by a number of independent institutions.
