      Hi again,

      I had asked recently about materials to use in the refurbishment of a wood display case. I am needing to know where I may purchase the recommended materials:

      1. Barrier Foil
      2. PP004 Moistop
      3. Marvelseal 360
      4. Dacrylate, Selabond RJ119
      5. Cuprinol Enhance

      I am not certain what barrier foil may be, exactly, although occasionally in our museums we use household, heavy-duty aluminum foil as a barrier layer. It is not especially tough, and will not take much physical abuse. For that reason, Marvelseal 360 (or the heavier 470) is a good choice. We bought a roll from a wholesale vendor, at significant cost. Gaylord Brothers, the archival vendor, sells 50-foot rolls of either variety, which is about the smallest quantity I have seen on sale. The cost is about $150.
