The Conservar Laropal A81 Varnish Kit is a comprehensive solution for artists and conservators seeking a reliable, high-performance varnishing system. This kit contains everything needed to prepare a fresh varnish mixture, including Mineral Spirits (solvent), Laropal A81 (varnish resin), a UV Stabilizer, a mixing jar, a pipette, and instructions. The resulting varnish is colorless, reversible, and suitable for both isolating and final varnishing applications.

Laropal A81, a urea-aldehyde resin, is recognized for its exceptional stability and lightfastness, making it an ideal choice for artwork preservation. Accelerated aging tests have shown that Laropal A81 remains soluble in a mixture of aliphatic and aromatic solvents even after extended exposure to xenon arc lamps, simulating direct sunlight. By adding a UV stabilizer, the varnish kit ensures the preservation of the resin's properties over time.

The Conservar Laropal A81 Varnish Kit is suitable for use on oil and alkyd paint films, providing a protective barrier that enhances the appearance of the artwork while maintaining its integrity. The varnish can be applied using a brush or spray, allowing for precise control and even coverage. With its relatively broad molecular weight distribution, Laropal A81 resin provides a pleasant, brushable consistency that can be easily mixed to the desired viscosity.

When used as an isolating varnish, Conservar Laropal A81 Varnish allows for the consolidation of fragile paint layers while preventing themigration of media. As a final varnish, it provides a non-yellowing, reversible coating that can be easily removed for future restoration or conservation efforts. Its satin-like appearance adds a sophisticated finish to the artwork, making it an excellent choice for artists and conservators seeking a premium varnish solution.

Before using the Conservar Laropal A81 Varnish Kit, it is essential to test the varnish on a test piece to understand its performance and surface appearance. Ensure that the painting or artwork is fully cured, and the varnish is applied in a dust-free environment with minimal air movement. Always follow the instructions provided and take necessary precautions to avoid contamination and ensure successful varnish application.

Conservar Laropal A81 Varnish Kit offers a high-quality, artist-tested varnish solution for artists, conservators, and restorers. With its exceptional lightfastness, stability, and reversibility, this kit is an indispensable tool for anyone seeking to preserve and protect valuable artworks.
