Reason for treatment
Clean, large crach to be consolidated
Large vessel is in good condition. There are two large cracks (vertically occurred) on the rim.
The cracks were first packed with HMG Paraloid B72 (methyl ethyl methacrlylate) and tightly joined together. Then the mixture of glass microballoons (silica or phenolic resin) and 30% Paraloid B72 (ethyl methacrylate copolymer) in Acetone (propan-1-one/dimethyl ketone) was used to fill the crack.
