We looked into Sintra starting in 1997.  Our exhibits department
liked it because it was easy to print or apply graphics to, but we
decided it was okay for mounting graphics outside an exhibit case,
but should not be used inside exhibit cases, as it is a foamed PVC,
and would be detrimental to artifacts if it was exposed to them
directly.  Good luck, Tom
