Gas Q (gas adsorption sheets for cultural property
protection and other purposes)
These gas adsorption sheets feature excellent capabilities for purposes including the protection of cultural properties, utilizing the superb gas adsorption performance of Cellgaia, a type of zeolite high-density crystallized pulp material developed by Rengo.
In recent years it has been shown that the actual objects to be conserved (such as cultural properties, video film, and ancient documents) produce gases including ammonia, acetic acid, hydrogen sulfide, and volatile organic compounds (VOC) over time, resulting in significant damage.
Gas Q is unique because it is thinner, lighter, softer, and much easier to process than similar conservation sheets of the past, making it possible to safely prevent the deterioration of cultural properties at a low cost.
This product is rapidly being adopted at museums, art galleries, libraries, university research archives, and other institutions across Japan that have experienced these issues in the past.
