16x16x16" MIMAS Stainless Steel Capped Time Capsule Box

Our Mimas simple capped cornerstone time capsule container is made of 304 stainless steel and measures a full 16 x 16 x 16 inches on the inside. The standard cap measures 16 x 16 inches inner dimensions. This time capsule has a capacity of 4096 cubic inches or 2.4 cubic feet. Although dependent on the actual size of your items, the Mimas size holds up to about 700 or more documents, photos & artifacts safely.

Your capped cornerstone order includes the following items at no additional charge. For more supplies to protect items, order a preservation kit or separate packages appropriate to your items.

  • Conditioning Kit appropriate to size with a calculated amount of Ageless Oxygen Absorbers (to remove oxygen) and Desiccant (to control moisture)
  • 3 Basic How-To Information Pamphlets on time capsules (Preservation Hints; 12 Tips to a Successful Time Capsule Project; and 100 Ideas for Time Capsule Contents)
  • Label: 7601 Poly 2.5x3.5" to write on & individualize your time capsule
  • Courtesy Starter Stationery Packet (2 Inventory Sheets, 3 Letter to the Future Stationery Sheets, 3 Envelopes)
  • 82042 Silicone Sealant with Wax Kit (Tube with illustrated How To Apply instructions, Applicator Tip, Optional Wax and Instructions/Tips for successful burial)
  • Limited Warranty

The time capsule is air tight after sealing. It is made of low corrosion stainless steel. It has a satin finish with welds polished smooth. It is water resistant, but should not be sitting in water over a period of 2 weeks (provide a way for the water to drain away). While its expected life is 75 years, the longevity of the time capsule protection can be more or less, depending upon the customer's conditions of placement. Use common sense and read all instructions that come with your purchase.

All of our box time capsules come with sufficient packing to protect them from damage in transit. The packing may include foam insulation panels. You may place these panels around the outside of the time capsule while in placement. The R value is not high, however, so especially if you place the capsule near any outside wall, you need to think about how much insulation you need for your conditions, and add more if necessary for that placement.

OK for us, fun to do
Nice time capsule for our nonprofit's 50th anniversary event. Will place in ground for another 50 years to open on our centennial. We got a lot more things into this capsule than we thought we would and we had space for documents and photos relating to event as well as the history of our group. Actually we had alot of fun with it and I'm considering doing another for the place I work at if I can muster up some enthusiasm.
