Did you know that there are lots of resources on our website that can help you learn more about the different types of plastics and the manufacturing processes that are associated with them?
The curator's guide has proved to be useful for both museums professionals and people with a general interest in plastics. It has a timeline, A-Z of Plastics, and A-Z of manufacturing processes.
The identifying plastics toolkit offers a user friendly system to help you learn to identify the materials your objects are made of.
The confronting plastics preservation pages aim to build workforce skills and
share excellence and best practice in collections knowledge relating to
the preservation of plastics objects across the museum sector.
