detachment of PAINT layers

The detachment of paint layers is one of the most alarming situations in paintings conservation as it can result in material loss. The solution involves the re-adhesion of the paint layer to the support with an appropriate adhesive, by taking into account the characteristics of the artwork materials. In addition to the required curative action of the damage, it is fundamental to prevent its reocurrance. For that, the reasons behind its appearance should be identified, such as: intrinsic factors (e.g. incompatibility between materials) or extrinsic causes (e.g. damage caused by impact or exposure to extreme HR flutuations).
