The article reports on approaches towards the development and assessment of liquid cleaning agents for acrylic latex paints of artists. It mentions the components of its methodology from high throughput (HTP) automated laboratory equipment for sample formulation, treatment and analysis. It also notes a comparative evaluation of naptha-based preparations and a proprietary water-in-oil microemulsion leading to stable microemulsion system formulation for art conservation cleaning applications.
