Acryloid B-72 is made by Rohm and Haas and is a resin based on a ethyl methacrylate copolymer. Acryloid B-72 is by far the most widely used and most versatile of all the
acryloid resins. It is suitable as a clear non-yellowing coating used in painting varnishes, consolidating and impregnating mural and oil paintings ground layer, as a fixative for
charcoal, chalk and pastel drawings, for consolidation of wood. It is also recommended as an adhesive for glass and ceramics. Acryloid B-72 is available as a 100% resin in the
form of beads, or in solution, supplied as 50% solids in toluene. Acryloid B-72 produces a clear film with an ultimate hardness of 10-11 KHN.
