Suction Table

Picture: Suction Table

A suction table is used for the conservation of works-of-art on paper or, in general, any porous 2-dimensional works of art. It provides a suction surface of adjustable level of vacuum for various paper treatments, such as controlled drying of paper, localized washing of dirt/stains and the lining on paper artifacts using aqueous adhesives etc. It also provides a stable platform while manipulating inserts and adjusting distortions on paper objects associated with cockling, tears, holes and other forms of damage.
