Getty Conservation Institute and Disney Animation Research Library
collaborative research project

A collection of original plastic animation cels and backgrounds will be studied to better understand the changes that occur in these materials over time, and the possible causes of these changes, with the ultimate aim of improving ways of preserving not only Disney’s animation cels, but also any object made from the same types of plastic.

Plastics Project, a research project on the identification  and conservation of plastics in The Netherlands  (2017-2019)
Each collection of contemporary art and design objects contains numerous artefacts made of plastic. To identify the material composition of the objects specialist knowledge is required, which is often not present in museums without a laboratory. The Plastics Project aims to apply advanced research to this large group of objects, bringing together conservation scientists and no less than ten major museums and curators in the Netherlands.
