An alternative means of protecting collections from outgassing
could be the use of MicroChamber MicroWrap. No, this is not the latest
dance craze to hit the Conservation scene but a 198 gsm active
archival quality material produced for convenience in a roll format.

MicroChamber MicroWrap was specifically designed to trap and then
neutralise off-gassing from shelves, planchests, existing housing
etc. and protect artifacts from the byproducts of deterioration.

Springfield, Virginia, USA or Cowley, Oxfordshire, England.
