MITS is an online multilingual database to assist Art Handlers, Registrars and Conservators worldwide in choosing correct materials for the packing of all mediums of art.  We invite you all to share in the development of this unique and useful tool.

The database has detailed information about different packing materials including product names, manufacturers, properties, applications and more. Archival qualities will be a special focus.

It also offers translations into six languages: English, German, French, Spanish, Italian and Turkish. More languages will be added in the future as the project expands.

All entries are illustrated. A beta version for PCs, tablets and smartphones is already live and was launched early 2016. Today we need expert input to improve the reliability of information and the usability of the database.

MITS is a non-profit project under the sponsorships of ICEFAT and its Membership.
