Re: [ARSCLIST] RV: [ARSCLIST] Cleaning of grooved discs- how about fungus?

Thanks. I was being slightly fascetious about CDs, and by glass and crdboard, I meant the substrate of 78s... I did not realize you didn't know! Interesting challenge. I only do tape so sorry I can't help either. Good luck!

I don't know exactly what they have other than some are older Edison 78s and
most are more modern 33s. I didn't specify, as the thread I was following
up on was talking about vinyl or shellac platters-not CDs or glass masters.

To be a little more specific, this is an archive that wants to job the work
out. We don't do platters at our lab (We just do tape- and the occasional
CD, DVD or MO). They have about 50 boxes of "records" with fungus and are
looking for potential vendors to handle the cleaning. As an archive, they
are also particularly interested in saving the album covers and labels as
well as the discs. They consider the entire "package" as worth saving-not
just the recorded content. Also, I don't know just how many discs they have
in the boxes but I figure, maybe 10 to 20 discs per box? 50 boxes could add
up to a reasonable amount of cleaning and the archive really doesn't want to
do this in-house.
