conservation packaging in barrier foilIn a fight to combat damage caused to high value paintings, major art galleries and museums housing priceless art collections are now using Barrier Foil Laminates.
By using Barrier Foils supplied and manufactured by Protective Packaging, the material helps to control and stabilise the relative humidity immediately behind the paintings on display and also during storage and transport. The key to the product is the flexible aluminium foil layer that acts as a moisture/gas barrier, being resistant to UV light, acid, alkalis, chemical and biological degradation and is up to 80 times more effective at preventing water vapour ingress than polythene.
