Air filtration and gas purification solutions for preservation - Environmental

The location of the files in an appropriate environment is a necessary condition to preserve them properly. There are numerous studies that identify environmental pollution as the main problem for the conservation of historical objects. Acid gases, such as sulfur, nitrogen and carbon oxides, are the most widespread form of pollution, and they acidify archival materials, accelerating deterioration. The powder has hygroscopic properties, which results in an increase in the humidity of the material, causing the appearance of a stain and other damages.
