- Thin flexible heating mats, which are about 1/16" thick,
are designed to wrap around beakers; they can be purchased in
a wide range of sizes and with a silicone or Kapton finish that
is described as resistant to mold and most solvents. The mats
require an adaptor cord and rheostat to regulate temperature.
The smallest mat is 1" x 5" and can be adapted for use
to apply heat locally for pressure-sensitive tape removal in
situ for books or oversize paper documents. For the creative
conservator there must be dozens of other uses for these mats
in the conservation lab.
The mats are available from Cole-Parmer Instrument Company, 625
