Characteristics

  • Dissolves easily in warm water

  • Does not mobilize soluble salts in paper and therefore does not leave tide lines

  • Is an excellent poultice cleaning agent

  • Dries matte and transparent – is a perfect xative for powdery paints

  • Is fully reversible as an adhesive for conservation

  • Is a medium when used with powdered pigments for reversible infill painting

TRI-Funori is complementing JunFunori

  • The entire “vintage” is processed as a single batch – i.e. “TRI-Funori 2015”

  • The resulting vintage is then tested for viscosity, adhesive strength and optical clarity in an
    ISO certifed lab with the results published and available to the purchaser

  • The clear liquid is frozen into blocks and then freeze dried resulting in the billowy cotton candy material which is very easy to re-hydrate

How to Re-hydrate TRI-Funori

TRI-Funori is re-hydrated for use by adding it to distilled water in a ratio of 1 part TRI-Funori to 100 parts water by weight.
Start by breaking up the TRI-Funori into the measured cold water in a small container.

Dehydrated TRI-Funori

Whisk or stir vigorously for 15-20 minutes over a hot water bath at about 50°C until all the particles are completely dissolved. A conventional infant bottle warmer is a good inexpensive tool for heating TRI-Funori to the optimal mixing temperature.

Fine air bubbles will form due to the stirring action. These will float out after a few minutes rest.
After re-hydrating, TRI-Funori can be further diluted for the purpose at hand.

Unused re-hydrated TRI-Funori should be kept refrigerated in an airtight container.
