RESEARCH PROJECT “SUSTAINABLE FRAMING OF LARGE-SCALE PRINTS”

In a research project on “sustainable framing of large-scale prints” recom ART cooperates with the Stuttgart Academy of Art and Design, course Conservation of Works of Art on Paper, Archives and Library Materials.  The aim is the development of a basically different alternative to the already on the market existing composite constructions.

Within this project and her bachelor thesis at the Academy Franziska Leidig is testing the most common materials used by recom ART. This includes aging tests under controlled climate and light conditions and also the Oddy test. The materials will be single tested and in composition. The tests will also give information about our very own established retouched splicing.

REMOVABLE MOUNTING

Furthermore recom ART is working on a method allowing the removal of photographic and inkjet papers from a backmounted material without any damages and residues.
