Has anyone tried this stuff? I don't mean spraying it on a comic (egad) -- I was thinking maybe using it to treat a long box.

Ever since I dipped my in latex paint, I try not to act on every idea that pops into my head.

I hear you. I'm learning to ask first, because maybe someone else has already acted on that REALLY COOL idea that popped into my head...

That "Make your own condom kit" wasn't worth it, eh?

Ribbed latex?

Hose down a long box, toss in a few dozen comics, and see what happens. I'm sure someone will be happy to donate some XForce books for this experiment.

At least you were only out the money for the sample size can.

Deacidification sprays are quite common. If you do a search on the word, you'll find a few different threads on the subject. People do spray their own books.

 

I don't see the point in making a box acid free when your books are probably bagged and boarded (I'm assuming they are).

 

The books themselves are the problem as the acids in the paper is what causes degradation.

 

This is from a post I made last week:

 

Deacidifcation is something that is going to become a must at some point.

 

I asked about it back in 2006 when I found out about it.

Thanks! I'm going to read through those threads you mention -- I'm challenging ALL my assumptions right now, because I'm deciding how/if to re-do my entire collection.

 

Yes, my books are bagged and boarded currently, but I'm questioning the wisdom of that. I did it years ago, without any deep understanding of the science. "All the kids were doing it," you know?

 

But I signed up here as part of my research, after I read about 40 pages one night discussing pH testing and buffered backing boards. I had never HEARD of Gerber or Bill Cole or any of that, and I'm getting a crash course!

 

And I really appreciate all the knowledge and experience this place has to offer. How pleasant, to find a place where people know what they're talking about!

Either that or we fake it really well.

Well, I found a can of the Krylon locally, so I guess I'll do some testing. If I get any meaningful results, I'll definitely post them.

Make sure to post the results even if it turns out to be a total fuxter cluck.

At least your paint overhead was de minimis.
