What is this stuff:
Specifically, what is the the "PENETRANT AND STABILIZER (PB002)", for use in an application like this:
FOSSIL IVORY REPAIR: We have considerable experience from the paleontology field and the knife making circles that the Penetrant and and Stabilizer (PB002) works wonders. When ivory looses its moisture, it shrinks, hence the cracking. The PB002 seals and bonds the fine openings and cracks and stabilizes the ivory. Just apply PB002 to the complete tooth or tusk and let it soak in.
Is there a substitute that does not cost an arm and a leg? Say, in a 30 gallon drum...
