Subject: Methyl bromide

Methyl bromide

From: Jill Plitnikas <jplitnikas<-a>
Date: Monday, February 7, 2005
Artifact crates from a travelling exhibition are being fumigated
with methyl bromide (no other option) before being returned to Asia.
We are interested in any recommendations on the amount of time for
off-gassing before packing the artifacts (mixed metal, ceramic,
cellulose and protein fibre textiles, paper), and any experience or
knowledge of reactions between methyl bromide and the closed cell
polyethylene foam used in the crate construction and padding?
