Exclusive to Conservation By Design, Whisper Tissue is a new concept in lining documents with Japanese tissue.
This 100% Tosa Kozo, 4gsm tissue has been coated with a re-moistenable, non-ionic, neutral pH (6-8) tapioca starch adhesive. After application the 4gsm tissue is virtually invisible. Tosa Kozo is reputed to be the strongest amongst Japanese Kozo fibres and makes it ideal for this super-thin paper.
It can be applied directly to wet paper after washing and simply brushed down and left to dry on the paper. It can also be placed over dry paper and moistened with a fine water mist, applied with a Dahlia spray or similar piece of equipment, before smoothing with a brush or pressing under release paper. It is ideal for lining documents and artwork, book conservation and repairing tears of lightweight paper. If used on heavier paper more than one layer may need to be applied.
