An aliphatic resin of low molecular weight, characterized by high to ageing and optical properties which are comparable to those of natural resins; ideally used as a bland consolidant for artifacts. A solution with low viscosity and high penetration can be obtained by dissolving in solvent amounts ranging from 10-% of resin by weight. Regalrez 1126 is soluble in medium- and low-polarity solvents (white spirit, petroleum essential oil, butyl ); it is insoluble in water and polar solvents.
