On this same topic, would one need to be wary of recycled polypropylene products? I believe that some of the normal office store polypropylene sleeves are made from recycled materials. Would this affect the archival safe qualities we attribute to the material?
That dotpattern website is fantastic. I finally have a way to identify the sleeves that were purchased and used before I started working here. On some of them, the only identifiers are that recycling code.
It also makes me feel much better about using the (cheaper than mylar) pp products.
