Information and documentation - Papers and boards used for conservation - Measurement of impact of volatiles on cellulose in paper


This document describes a test method for conservation materials which can evaluate their impact on cellulose as the main constituent of paper-based collections caused by emission of their volatile compounds. This document is applicable to papers and boards used for conservation and storage of cellulose based items. It is not applicable to parchment-based items. It does not evaluate the effects due to direct contact between the papers and boards used for conservation and the collections. Note: This test can be extended to museum artefacts.
