Press release date: May 1, 2003
ALSIP, ILLINOIS May 2003 . . . Silver-Guard anti-tarnish films and papers manufactured by Cromwell-Phoenix, Inc. neutralize the sulfide and oxidizing vapors that cause tarnish and corrosion of silver and other noble metals. Available in bleached white kraft, polycoated bleached white kraft and polyethylene film, Silver-Guard is the most cost-effective, environmentally friendly tarnish protection for makers of electrical contacts and connectors, electronic circuitry, switching assemblies, computer boards and wiring harnesses. It can also be used to protect consumer products such as jewelry and flatware.
Silver-Guard protects products from tarnishing after production, during shipment and while in storage. Silver-Guard is compatible with, and provides medium-term corrosion protection for copper, solder and other electronic circuit board components. It does not interfere with the electrical circuitry, solderability or the application of photoresist coatings. Packaging with Silver-Guard is an easy one-step process: simply wrap your product in Silver-Guard, or place it in a heat-sealable Silver-Guard bag.
Silver-Guard paper is a 40-lb. (65gsm) bleached white kraft impregnated with silver protective chemicals. Silver-Guard polycoated paper is a 40-lb (65 gsm) bleached white kraft paper coated with a chemically infused 2-mil matte finish polyethylene. Silver-Guard film is a polyethylene infused with protective chemicals. Silver-Guard film comes standard in 4 mil, translucent green. The polycoated paper and film products are heat-sealable, and the film media allows the use of zip-loc, autobag and other closures used with automatic and semi-automatic packaging equipment.
Cromwell-Phoenix, Inc. is a leading provider of corrosion protection solutions, including volatile corrosion inhibitor (VCI) packaging designed to protect metal products during shipping and storage. By replacing traditional protective grease and oil, VCI packaging eliminates the need for costly, labor-intensive cleanup before use.
