 Base:
Thermoplastic copolyamide resin.

Properties:
Melting point of 90-100°C.

Uses:
Lascaux Polyamide Textile Welding Powder is used as a hot-melt adhesive for textiles and leather.
In conservation it is widely used for tear-mending of paintings on canvas. The tensile strength is sufficient in most cases.

Application:
Polyamide Textile Welding Powder is a hot-melt adhesive. The easiest way of application is to stick a hot soldering needle into the powder and then apply the melted polyamide.

Another method consists of melting the polyamide powder with an iron between two sheets of Hostaphan film, in order to obtain a coat of approx. 1-2 mm thickness. After cooling, the polyamide coat is cut in very thin strips. These strips are then used together with the soldering needle to weld the threads.
