Capacity is 1440 cu in or .84 cu ft, opening is a full 10 x 8 inches and protects an average number of time capsule items from 30 to 125 smaller items. You get all you need to seal this time capsule properly, including a sealant, oxygen absorbers and desiccant products.

This is a popular size to use for a building dedication, and is placed in a cornerstone or in a wall or in a niche.
Your time capsule order includes the following items at no additional charge.
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.
