Topics: Preventing Tarnish of Precious Metal Wire

Q.
How can I keep my precious-metal wire organized and prevent it from tarnishing while in storage?

- Sue
A.
Keep your wire organized by storing it in Tite-lip™ top zip clear bags. Use a permanent marker to write the gauge and type of wire on the outside of the bag so it's easily identifiable. Store the top zip filled bags into a suitable plastic storage container. Not only will your wire be easy to find, the top zip bags and added help of the plastic container will limit oxidation, keeping your wire tarnish free.
