One of the most important factors in the preservation of art collections is the stability of the surrounding environment requiring temperature and humidity to be strictly controlled. Fluctuations in the humidity generate mechanical stress in hygroscopic materials. This stress is caused by the expansion and contraction of the fibers as the ambient humidity swings up and down. Many priceless manuscripts, books, works of art and other exhibited objects have been destroyed or damaged because they were not kept in properly controlled atmosphere.
