Wide-format rolls of polytetrafluoroethylene (PTFE) film, best known as plumber's or Teflon tape, are being developed for use as a final covering on storage supports for objects with particularly fragile or vulnerable surfaces. The film's smooth and pliable characteristics are well suited to protecting fragile surfaces from abrasion and similar mechanical damage. Included in the paper are descriptions of how the film was used for rehousing projects at the Arizona State Museum.
