Conservators Sponge - Hydrophilic

The closed-cell structure of our conservator's sponge is hydrophilic and can be used for various conservation procedures such as:

  • Wet repairs to remove residual water, as the repair tissue does not attach to the sponge.
  • Small disasters – absorbs a large amount of water rapidly.
  • Painting and artwork conservators use the sponge with solvents to clean and remove varnish.
  • In paper repair - when leafcasting to remove excess water without lifting off the pulp repair.
  • Can also be used in conjunction with draft cleaning powder.
  • No doubt conservators will find other uses for the Conservators Sponge ™.

The sponge can be shaped to suit the requirements of the project. By allowing the sponge to dry out, it becomes harder and can be cut to the desired shape with a sharp knife. Immersion in water for a few minutes softens the sponge so that it is ready to use again. During our research with conservators we have found the 73mm x 48mm x 35mm is the preferred size for the majority of conservation work.
