Microfilm is a stable archival form that when properly processed and stored has a life expectancy of 500 years. Our preservation standard microfilm uses the silver halide process, creating silver images in hard gelatin emulsion on a polyester base. Microfilm is virtually impossible to mutilate. Users cannot tear or easily deface microfilm. Because of microfilm’s durability and endurance, most government agencies require that their records, maps and documents are stored on microfilm. Even digital images are now burnt to film and processed in a lab and used for archival purposes.
Our certified lab was designed using industry specifications. The lab contains two M-20 Allen Deep Tank processors, two Kodak Prostars, a custom made dark room and a separate room for diazo duplication processes. All processes from start to finish are completed within our facility, providing exceptional security and quality control.
