This 8-gram packet is the right size to protect a single puzzle in a normal indoor environment. Simply store the humidity pack with the puzzle in a sealed container or ziplock bag to ensure your puzzle looks and functions as new. Ten single puzzle packets are included with this order.
HOW BOVEDA WORKS TO PROTECT YOUR PUZZLES
Boveda packets add or remove moisture as needed to maintain between 45-55% relative humidity. This protects your collection against shrinkage, swelling, warping, cracks and other damage caused by improper humidification.
HOW TO USE BOVEDA
Step 1: Remove the Boveda from the sealed bag. Make sure to tightly seal the bag after removal to ensure the unused packets do not dry out. DO NOT open the Boveda packet itself!
Step 2: Place one Boveda in the container with the puzzle. Make sure to not place the packet where it could be crushed or punctured! This can release the moisture inside and damage the puzzle.
Step 3: Occasionally check the packet for replacement. Initially, Boveda has a lot of catch-up work to do as it stabilizes the moisture content of the puzzle. Therefore, your first set of Boveda won’t last as long as subsequent sets.
WHEN TO REPLACE PACKETS
Boveda will solidify as it expires. Replace when the entire contents of the packet become a hardened gel.
Do not use Boveda with other humidification products like sponges, oases, and discs. They will fight against each other and reduce the efficiency of the Boveda. Do not mix different Boveda RH levels within the same container. Instead of creating a new “average” RH, the moisture will merely transfer back and forth between the packets.
