I would suggest a visit to the site
<URL:http://www.stamps.org/care/pcpm.htm> might be of interest.

This site is the home of a group within the American Philatelic
Society that is collating relevant details on the 'Preservation and
Care of Philatelic Materials', and includes information about the
use of various plastic materials for storage.
