What are the proper storage and handling conditions, and warranty, of your medical recording papers?
STORAGE AND HANDLING CONDITIONS
Dyes used in the manufacture of thermally responsive papers react with solvents and other compounds found in adhesives and direct contact between them and thermal printing will destroy the printed data over time. Follow the precautions listed below to avoid adverse effects to the paper and/or to the tracings. Store paper in cool and dry locations. Exposure over long periods to temperatures over 93 degrees Fahrenheit (40 degrees Centigrade) or to a relative humidity over 60% can lighten the printed data. Also avoid exposing to sunlight (UV light) or bright light, which may darken paper and/or lighten tracings.
Also avoid storing any thermal paper with the following elements:
– Papers containing organic solvents including, but not limited to, tributyl phosphate
– and/or dibutyl phthalate;
– Carbon and/or carbonless forms;
Products which contain PVC or other vinyl chloride such as, but not limited to: document protectors, envelopes, binders, sheet separators;
– Cleaning fluids and solvents such as alcohol, ketones, esters and others;
– Products that contain solvent based adhesives such as, but not limited to: mounting forms, pressure sensitive transparent tapes or labels.
To maximize legibility and archivability, store thermal charts separately, in a climate controlled environment, using any of the following:
– Polyester Polymide Document/Sheet Protectors;
– Mounting Cards/Systems made with Water Based Adhesives;
The use of these storage/filing products will not provide complete protection against fading from external contaminants.
Average archivability of this product is five (5) years, if stored in accordance to the precautions listed above. If your retention/archivability requirements of thermal records/charts exceed these guidelines, the manufacturer recommends a suitable photocopy to be produced.
DISREGARD OF THESE INSTRUCTIONS MAY CAUSE THE BACKGROUND TO DARKEN OR TRACING TO LIGHTEN.
