Paper restoration

Equipment for assisting with book restoration

Paper damaged by fire will disintegrate with the slightest movement. By developing the leaf casting process, this results in a highly effective restoration process for paper that has been damaged, particularly by fire. We have focussed primarily on wet processing and leaf casting processes with our products.

Leaf-casting machine for treating imperfections

Multifunctional partial stabilisation and leaf casting for treating imperfections on paper and printed works.

Assembly and equipment of the leaf-casting machine

The processing tank is made of stainless steel and polished electromechanically. This makes it easy to clean and resistant to chemicals. The base features LED lighting for optimum working. The leaf-casting tank is equipped with 2 linear lifting cylinders for even lifting of paper surface (perforated plate). A folding frame fixes the book pages to be processed. The lateral overflow tank features a pump which supplies the prepared, water-based solution to the book pages via a distribution system.
