What materials are safe to use in exhibition cases?

All materials that come into contact with collection items should be inert materials and not give off volatile organic compounds (VOCs) or give off other chemicals. The British Museum run oddy tests on many types of materials to see if they are suitable to use near museum collections and have published their results on their website .
