Talk:Humidification (PCC)

From Wiki

This discussion page was started in July 2014 to collect ideas for improving the chapter. It includes the suggestions offered by the BPG Publications Committee, PCC Task Force in 2007-2009. Please feel free to add your own suggestions for improvement.

Update priority: Medium: Appears to be unfinished. Has been extensively and well-written about about elsewhere though.


  • Add information about using Gortex or Tyvek packs.
  • Add discussion of humidifying iron gall ink.
  • The section on Humidity Chamber Techniques mentions the use of thymol / ortho—phenyl phenol / borax. These are no longer recommended for use in book and paper conservation.--Kkelly (talk) 10:09, 19 September 2017 (CDT)
  • There is a brief mention of the use of Freon in sprayers. As Freon (CFCs) are no longer available, I recommend deleting this. I do not think this needs to be listed under "Historical Techniques and Materials" as it is a pretty brief mention in this chapter. The chapters on Backing Removal and Alkalization and Neutralization have text for this use though, if necessary.--Kkelly (talk) 13:17, 1 December 2017 (CST)
