SPECIFICATIONS

 

Several mass deacidification technologies were tested in the 1980s, but all were proven to have a deleterious effect on some aspect of the materials treated, e.g., discoloration of inks and dyes, loosening of adhesives.  The Bookkeeper process has been tested extensively by a number of institutions, including the Library of Congress (LC) and has been found to be effective at deacidifying, while causing no harm to adhesives, papers, book cloth, leather, inks, dyes or film.
