The new MS3 is the successor to MS2A and was developed by CSIRO (Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization) in collaboration with leading museums in Australia and Europe. Carl Villis, Senior Conservator of Paintings at the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) comments: "MS3 is clearer and more consistent in its appearance than the earlier resin as a direct result of the flow chemistry process employed by CSIRO's scientists."
MS3 Special Resin 50 g
MS3 is a synthetic varnish material of the latest generation, developed for applications in the field of restoration and preservation of monuments. Compared to its predecessor MS2A, the clarity of the colour and the wetting of the surfaces have been improved. With MS3 the chemical composition of MS2A has been carefully reproduced. This has been achieved by using a sustainable yet advanced production technology called "flow chemistry".
This new cyclohexanone resin meets the demand for reversibility for restorers and works of art, as well as the European standard for the preservation of cultural heritage. Furthermore the characteristics of MS3 are recommended by the European Committee for Standardization (CEN).
