Crossweld Polyester Film Sealing Machine

From: Mauray K. Toutloff <toutloff<-a>

The Museum of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia
would like to purchase some encapsulation equipment for the
Collections Research Enhancement Project. We have a few thousand
works of art on paper which would be eligible for encapsulation. We
are currently considering the "Crossweld Polyester Film Sealing
Machine" which is available through University Products and
Preservation Equipment Ltd. I would like to know if anyone has any
experience with this particular piece of equipment, including how
often the heating element and "PTFE" cloth needs replacing. Some
literature describes the older models as "temperamental" especially
concerning the heating element. Any advice or information on the new
model would be greatly appreciated.
