The latest accelerated corrosion tests carried out by the British
Museum on Cushion Wrap 1207, a flame retardant cushion wrap material
have confirmed its suitability for permanent use in the protection
of artefacts made from gold.

Cushion Wrap 1207 has already gained approval for use in the
protection of items in transit and in permanent storage following
earlier tests on its suitability against a variety of organic
artefacts, silver,copper and lead.

Cushion Wrap L1207 is certified for use by the Loss Prevention
Council Board following specialist flame retardancy testing at the
LPCB's test laboratories.
