Re: Stock Paint:Gum Solutions?
To Loris, re Mike Ware's PVA information:
Darn, I was hoping it would mean something to you, because it doesn't
mean much to me either. Maybe if I went back and went over my notes
from the time when I was studying research on PVA in dichromated
colloid processes, it would jog my memory. If so, I'll let you know.
Someone once pointed us to a great site that went over all the
different variables in PVA variability and explained what each of
them meant, but the last time I activated that bookmark, that
information was no longer there.

I found the information from Mike Ware on PVA for Loris:
"We found an 88% hydrolyzed PVA, with an RMM around 25 kd in 20% w/
v solution to offer the best all-around results--comparable to 14
"If you make any public use of this information, please cite it as
follows: Stephen Beckett, M. Phil. Thesis, University of Derby
(UK) November, 1993, (A private communication from Mike Ware)."

One of Mike Ware's students figured out what the best PVA is to
use for dichromate colloid process. I have the information in a
file somewhere and will look it up later day if I have time.

interested in synthetic alternative such as PVA. I haven't find
source of suitable PVA, plus, I'm not completely sure which kind
of PVA is
most suitable for our purposes. As soon as I figure these out
type), I'll leave gum aside and use PVA as the colloid. (My current
understanding is that something like 85% hydrolized, with a
around 10 - 12.000 should do well... Any thoughts?)
