Comic Book Preservation

BCEMylar | X-Tenders

Bill Cole Enterprises has announced the availability of what they are calling “The Fountain of Youth” for comic books. They are sheets to place inside your comic book, that will retard the yellowing of the paper that usually occurs in old books.

“For years collectors and archivists have tried many new products to prevent their books from turning yellow and aging. From expensive chemical de-acidifcation to acid-free backing boards, nothing has worked to permanently remove the gases that cause the deterioration.

Now, BCE has developed Life-X-Tender Plus, using technology designed by Bell Laboratories. Life-X-Tenders Plus are made from very fine copper, bound to plastic and then bonded onto a sheet of certified true archival quality paper.”
