Materials, Supplies & Tools
This materials list is organized generically. To search for a product, one first should determine what material it is made of (e.g. paper, polyethylene, aluminum) and then search for it in the appropriate category. Tools are an exception and are listed by their common name. Suppliers and manufacturers chosen by the authors are listed as well.

This list is not comprehensive and mention on this site does not constitute an endorsement by FAIC, SPNHC or any other organization or individual.  Visit our Sponsors page [internal link] for a list of vendors who support the STASH website.

Formulations of commercially available products can change without notice. Before purchasing supplies, check with the manufacturer to ensure that the favorable properties of the material are still present.

For additional information on materials and supplies visit Conservation & Art Material Encyclopedia Online (CAMEO).
