MEDITE CLEAR protects Tipperary Museum of Hidden History exhibits

MEDITE CLEAR protects Tipperary Museum of Hidden History exhibits

The newly refurbished Tipperary Museum of Hidden History has used MEDITE CLEAR, an MDF panel manufactured with zero-added formaldehyde, to put the wellbeing of both its artefacts and guests first.

Formaldehyde is a substance that occurs naturally in all organic materials including wood, in very small amounts that may be off-gassed or emitted over time.

For ancient or old, fragile and extremely sensitive objects such as museum artefacts, steps must be taken to ensure their immediate environment is as clear of substances such as formaldehyde and other VOC’s.

MEDITE CLEAR has been proven to have a formaldehyde content of less than 1.0mg/100g, even less than the general outdoor ambient level.

Marie McMahon, curator for the Tipperary County Museum said: “We have been thrilled to use MEDITE CLEAR to transform the museum during its recent refurbishment.

“It was a priority when embarking on the task to ensure the longevity of our artefacts, and the wellbeing of our visitors. MEDITE CLEAR was the answer.”

“The entire floor has been completely “re-designed and re-fitted with brand new display cases, plinths and stands. Over time, there is a definite tangible impact in the lifespan of an ancient or fragile artefact when it’s housed in a case constructed with MEDITE CLEAR compared to one made with regular wood panels. It’s a trustworthy product that has also proven to be extremely versatile and easy to work with in terms of machining and shaping.”

Independent tests have shown that the formaldehyde content of MEDITE CLEAR is formulated originally for sensitive interior applications such as hospitals, schools and care homes, for the health and wellbeing of building occupants.

It can be produced in a range of panel sizes and thicknesses (1220mm x 2440mm).
