Silverbrite is a bleached, smooth kraft paper with a special coating on the paper surface. This coating serves as a barrier or absorption system for sulphurous compounds in the air, which can cause silver jewellery, cutlery or decorative goods to tarnish or change colour.
As well as reliably protecting silver-plated surfaces, silverware and jewellery from tarnishing, Silverbrite can be used in technical areas, especially with applications where specific parts must remain bare for further processing or to retain their function, e.g. contacts. It has no effect on other materials.
