Anti-Tarnish Tabs are a must for your showcase, your safe, your jewelry box or anywhere your jewelry might be! Anti-Tarnish Tabs are chemically treated strips of paper that protect metals from the discoloration of tarnish for up to 6 months.
These convenient tabs are safe to use with silver, nickel, copper, bronze, brass, tin, pewter and gold.
They are not just for jewelry! Use them with flatware, keepsakes, instruments, anything susceptible to that dreaded tarnish!
Anti-Tarnish Tabs use special "Tarni-Shield" technology that will inhibit tarnish on metal in storage. When exposed to the air, the Anti-Tarnish Tabs begin absorbing corrosive agents that harm metals. They absorb hydrogen sulfide, the main tarnish causing compound. The tabs also handle sulfur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide, ozone, hydrogen, chlorine and organic carboxylic acid.The levels of compounds in the air determines how long the Anti-Tarnish Tabs will last.
Using the tabs in a loosely seal container such as a cardboard box, jewelry box or a showcase, they will last around 6 months. The can last up to 12 months in a moderately sealed container such as an envelope. In a tightly seal container like a zip top bag, the Anti-Tarnish Tabs could last as long as 24 months.
The Tabs don't release any chemicals. They don't leave behind residue and are safe to use.
The 1" x 1" Anti-Tarnish Tabs can protect approximately 30 cu. in. of space. To use them, remove a strip from the package and place near the metal item in an enclosed space. You can use them in showcases, display cases, storage boxes, china cabinets, trophy cases, instrument cases, silverware drawers, jewelry boxes and more. Keep the unused tabs in a sealed, airtight bag.
