This is a UV stable, colorless, reversible varnish made from hydrogenated hydrocarbon (Regalrez) resins dissolved in pure, low-aromatic solvents and a UV absorber and stabilizer.  This varnish will not cross-link nor

yellow over 100 years as shown by the test of de la Rie and McGlinchey (4).  This varnish qualifies to be called a “Class A” materials as defined by Feller (5).  UV Stable Matte Varnish was designed for use in conservation of modern paintings where a matte finish is desired.  It was formulated to achieve the lowest possible action on the original paint, and maximum resin content for nest coverage.  It can be mixed with UV Stable Finishing Varnish in any proportion to provide the desired degree of gloss.
