Subject: Anoxic packaging supplies, etc.
We are now developing a catalogue of supplies for Anoxic packaging and other high-tech barrier films and supplies. Before we go too far, we would like to gauge the need for such a one-stop source, and determine what other items would be useful. We are also interested in your thoughts on minimum order sizes, catalogue design, the maximum acceptable time between most orders and delivery, etc. Most importantly, any estimation on your needs would be very useful to us: eg what kind of supplies (barrier film bags, Ageless, plastic sheeting, etc.would you need, and how often would you forsee your need for these items. The following is a short listing of the materials we expect to be offering: 1. Barrier Films & Bags ACLAR Films (by the yard) and pre-made ACLAR Bags Mylar or nylon /EVOH/poly Films (by the yard) and pre-made EVOH Bags Static Intercept Film & Products ( a new product from AT&T) Heat Resistant, Glass Coated Films & Products (Rollprint) Tyvek (uncoated or treated, surgical quality) High barrier Garment Storage Bags (a very neat, reusable system, excellent for furs) 2. Sealing Systems Reusable plastic closures/clips for bags Jaw Sealers Impulse Sealer Rotary (wheel) Sealers Tapes Vacuum Sealing System (presently called Docupac, excellent for archiving papers) \ 3. Oxygen Scavengers and Indicators Ageless (Mitsubishi's scavenger products) Ageless Eye (Oxygen Indicator, various types are available) Humidity Indicator Cards 4. Measuring and Monitoring Equipment Oxygen level meters 5. Micro Climate Control Systems A Micro Climate Generator for display cases which is now available. Further improvements, including an oxygen scavenging system are now under development. 6. Miscellaneous Supplies "Ageless" Storage Chamber Static Electricity Reduction Tools Warning and other Labels I am also considering an interesting 2 dimensional bar code system which can contain over 3000 characters, with redundancy, on a 3 inch square label. Also being considered is an application which uses the anoxic bag system for deacidifying books or papers on an individual basis. Please drop me a line via Compuserve, and let me know of your interests. Again, any estimates you might have of your expected volume of purchases (no commitment, no follow up calls, just an estimate) would help me in raising funds and determining stock levels. Thanking you in advance, I remain, Yours truly, Jerry Shiner *** Conservation DistList Instance 8:14 Distributed: Tuesday, August 16, 1994 Message Id: cdl-8-14-002 ***Received on Monday, 1 August, 1994
