Hi members, I am about to start a job at a historic cemetery. Obviously the materials that we use to clean and repair the stones will interact with the surrounding landscape. As I get started in this new role, I'd like to know of any products that are both effective and safe for plants and wildlife. Let me know!
Hello Everyone, I am in charge of the collection management and I'm currently working on a project of conditioning a reserve of platres. The museum would like to use durable and as natural materials as possible (so no foam) cause the reserve will be visible and it's located in a historic home without any non-natural material. So there is a compromise to be made between suitable conservation choices and an aesthetic dimension and respect for the existing place. We thought about using cork in combination with polyethylene foam. Have you ever heard of cork packaging? Are the risks of VOCs the same as those of wood? Do you know any materials that could help me in this project? Many thanks for your help, Allison
