Mercury 9x6x15 Stainless Steel Capped Time Capsule

Our Mercury simple capped stainless steel time capsule measures a full 9 x 6 x 15" on the inside. The standard cap measures 9 x 6 inches. This time capsule has a capacity of 810 cubic inches or .47 cubic feet. Envision legal sized documents 6" thick. Although it will depend the actual size of your items, the Mercury size holds up to about 155 or more documents, photos & artifacts safely. You can bury this time capsule - follow all instructions. The box has a satin finish and looks nice as well as being functionally safe for the long term. While we call it a 'cornerstone' time capsule, you don't need a cornerstone to use it. It's a popular size for any use.

Your capped time capsule 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.

Worked well for church cornerstone
We were looking to place a new box in the cornerstone of our church, and want to avoid the problems that occurred with the previous container. I looked at your website and found one of your capsules that fit well in the space. When I wrote to your company, you were very helpful and answered all of our technical questions to our satisfaction. We appreciate your assistance and we liked the quality of the time capsule. It was easy to place and everyone agreed that it was an important part of our celebration this year. Thanks.
