Did you know CGC recommends you get their slabs be cracked open and re-slab bed every 7 years? Is this true? I was told it's because the gas they use in the slabs deteriorate every 7 years

The slabs are not gas tight so that doesn't sound right. Also they use Argon in gas stored items and Argon does not deteriorate.

They recommend reholdering books after 7 years because that's how long the microchamber paper is effective.

And the microchamber paper helps with offgassing of the comic paper, right?

When I see the word "off gassing," I just start laughing.
