This package includes Archival Intercept®
Archival Intercept® is a revolutionary new patented product which neutralizes oxidizing gases in the air such as ozone, carbonyl sulfide, sulfur dioxide, hydrogen chloride, nitrogen dioxide and hydrogen sulfide. This is accomplished with a chemical reaction which bonds the gases to the Archival Intercept sheet. Merely absorbing the gases is not sufficient because these systems can be reversed thus re-emitting the dangerous gases now in higher concentrations. Intercept reacts with and permanently neutralizes oxidizing gases. Intercept is also an effective passive fungicide and bactericide.
Oxidizing gases are formed by decaying vegetation, burning fossil fuels, industrial operations, ocean surfaces and degrading organic products. These gases are in every environment, and were even found inside AT&T clean room facilities which have sophisticated filtering systems to remove microscopic dust products from the air.
Testing done at DuPont and AT&T determined that under normal levels of atmospheric sulfur and chlorine, .001 inch of Intercept film would neutralize the gases for more than 10 years. As the gases attempt to permeate the Intercept film, they encounter the active copper attached to the polymer end chains and are reacted and permanently neutralized.
Sheet Size = 24x18in
For best protection, replace Archival Intercept every 5 years if stored with textiles made fom natural fibers. For storage with textiles made of synthetic fibers, replace after 10 years.
