Preservation of Plastic Artefacts in Museum Collections The EU 7th Framework project ‘Preservation of Plastic Artefacts in museum collections’ with the acronym ‘POPART’ addresses the issues with a large and interesting group of synthetic materials in collections of ‘modern’ objects from the nineteenth and twentieth century. It tackles the identification, characterisation, deterioration and stabilisation of plastics that are less stable than was once believed. Characterisation of plastic artefacts is a complex analytical problem and represents a challenging area of research as most materials are extremely inhomogeneous either due to the production process or due to degradation processes. The collaborative project is intended to develop a pan-European strategy that targets better conservation and maintenance of plastics in museum collections.
