Abstract

Preserving books for long-term is a challenging task and many methods have been used to prolong their lifespan. In this work, viscose fabric was used as the basis for an acrylic coating with two additives in the form of zinc oxide and dolomite nanoparticles. These two additives were added in order to create a canvas with higher resistance to acidic environments and higher biological resistance against fungi. The canvas has obtained new mechanical properties such as higher strength, and significant elongation changes depending on the amount of dolomite and also without worsening of abrasion. The canvas has been developed and tested specifically for use in libraries and archives in order to increase the lifespan of stored book collections.

Keywords: Zinc oxide, dolomite, nanoparticles, canvas, strength, abrasion.
