Re: Plywood boards



Emissions from plywood have the potential to cause damage (such as corrosion and
discoloration) to objects either by direct contact or the emission of volatile
compounds. Most problems caused by contact can be solved by using interleaves,
and problems related to volatile emission can be controlled by selecting
appropriate coatings and allowing adequate drying periods. The use of
appropriate procedures and mitigation strategies should minimize any risk of
damage. A good reference is the Canadian Conservation Institute's Technical
Bulletin # 21, Coatings for Display and Storage in Museums, by Jean Tétreault,
available from CCI through their web site http://www.cci-icc.gc.ca. Jean's email
address is Jean_Tetreault@pch.gc.ca.
