In Namibia it is particularly schoolchildren in all age groups who take advantage of approximately 60 public libraries. In order to protect their stocks against excessive wear and tear the books are now being lined with self-adhesive protection film. For this purpose Neschen AG donated over 10,000 square metres of "filmolux soft PP" book protection film to the Namibian Library and Archive Service in Windhoek last year.

Books protected by Neschen films have a longer life and are easy to clean.

The aqueous emulsion adhesives used are acid-free. With all raw materials Neschen also strictly ensures that they are free of cadmium, mercury, lead and other potentially harmful additives.

After all, the lending of books should provide reading pleasure, without any health hazard. The raw materials must also have a high level of ageing resistance.

"Our donation campaign in Namibia is first and foremost for a good cause but at the same time it naturally helps to make Neschen even more well-known on the African continent", says Frank Seemann, head of Marketing & Communikation at Neschen in Bückeburg. "As opposed to western Europe, where our self-adhesive protection and care films are used in virtually every library, in Africa we lack a sufficient level of brand awareness."

"Purchasing this quantity of film would not have been possible with the Ministry of Education's normal budget to which libraries are exposed", says the director of the Public Library Service in Windhoek. "Neschen protection film helps us to conserve the well-used stocks for a longer period of time."

In addition to the protection, maintenance and repair of books Neschen is also involved in the field of mass conservation of single sheets and, shortly, books as well. The innovative company also supplies printable, coated and finished web-type media such as plastic film and paper, but also textiles for printing service providers. Architects, designers, photographers, interior decorators and advertising agencies can resort to a wide range of stocks to suit any application.
