Definitions for "Reversible"
(A process or reaction that can be reversed by an infinitesimally small change in conditions. For example, ice and water coexist at 1 atm and 0°C; a very slight temperature increase causes the ice to melt; a tiny temperature decrease causes the water to freeze. Melting or freezing under these conditions can be considered reversible. Reversible processes are infinitesimally close to equilibrium. ) reversible process; reversible reaction. Compare with irreversible and irreversible process. thermo
A chemical reaction which can proceed first to the right and then to the left when the conditions change. To Top
A reversible process is one which would change direction with an infinitesimal change in external conditions. For a process to be reversible it must be frictionless and quasistatic so that no energy is dissipated and the system is always only infinitesimally removed from equilibrium. Because a reversible process passes through a series of quasi-equilibrium states it can be represented as a solid line on a plot of one state variable against another. More details here.
Any method used to mount art or objects that can be undone in such a way that essentially no harm is done to the art or object. Methods include hinge mounting works of art on paper, stitching textiles to mounting boards with cotton thread and pinning needleart with stainless steel or nickel plated brass ball point pins. Adhesive tape and glue are not reversible.
Preservation process or treatment that can be undone without changing the object to return it to its original state. Close Window
Colors that are reversible will bleed back into the dyebath during the second dye run. It is necessary to use non-reversible dyes for overdyeing and double-dyeing.

Keywords:  periphery, jersey, cuff, glove, sewn
Reversible gloves are almost always made from a jersey material. A single seam is used around the entire periphery of the glove and a separate cuff is sewn on as the last step. Reversible styling enables the wearer to wear the glove on either hand.
