It is a proprietary process currently, doing testing on several hundred covers and some post process testing to ensure there is no structural damage.  The nice part is it seems to really improve the ink, which is the opposite of most other processes.  As the paper moves from yellow to brown the effectiveness is lessened. Basically once the damage (brittleness) starts there is limited repair.  
 

I can tell you the process would land the book in conserved category as it is done in conjunction with de-acidification 

These pics are of a book that had become two fold brittle at the top

Cool!

Any chance I could send you the wife's teeth? :)

I peed myself.

That's the normal reaction to a good joke PooPiece, yes :bigsmile:

Not everyone will get it though, as our two 'sad facers' prove:

Nothing sucks the joy out of a funny post more than a sad face.
