Artsorb protects our cultural heritage for future generations
preservation of great works of art requires extreme amounts of care and
attention. The most important factor is to control the humidity. As art
collections are constantly touring the world, and different geographic
regions have extremes in climates, sudden changes in humidity are caretaker’s
nightmare. Fuji Silysia answers with Artsorb. Artsorb is a moisture-sensitive
silica material which adsorbs and desorbs moisture in order to offset
changes in relative humidity.
Artsorb has proven itself to be a significant step forward in the preservation
of the world’s priceless treasures.
you know, in the summer and winter, climate is extremely different in
In the summer, high heat and humidity occur, and in the winter, low humidity
and cool temperatures are experienced. Moreover, in one day, the temperature
and humidity between daytime and nighttime can change significantly.
In art, these significant changes cause problems such as color fading,
cracking, and ill modifications over a period of time.
humidity and temperature are controlled through an air-conditioning system,
and in recent years has become
a good environment for art treasures. However, an air-conditioning system
is still controlled by a power switch making it difficult for environment
condition assurances. For works of art, the worst influence is a rapid
change in humidity, and Artsorb, with its humidity control functions, operate
as a buffer to prevent these rapid humidity changes.
characteristic of Artsorb
Artsorb is a completely new type of humidity control which
Fuji Silysia chemistry has improved time and again.
Compared with the conventional silica gel, Artsorb has a greater capacity
for moisture ad desorption From low to high humidity levels, Artsorb
is a perfect combatant for rapid humidity changes, and is excellent in
Furthermore, Artsorb exhibits very low levels of hysteresis,or the phenonmenon
in which adsorption and release of humidity do not correspond.
