Thus, the Pro-Ject vinyl Cleaner VC-S presents with dimensions of 435 x 335 x 280 mm, is compact, the housing is kept in discreet black. It is striking that the Pro-Ject vinyl Cleaner VC-S is based on a solid running plates made of metal, but not equal to the entire circumference of the record. The record will be fixed using a special clamp, which shall ensure that the label is well protected to clean vinyl. Even the arm for the extraction is carried out extremely robust and made of metal.

In the arm cleaning lips are used on the underside of corresponding recesses, which eliminate any residual liquid during the suction. These are always in the form of Pro-Ject VC-S Self-adhesive strips as an accessory.
The Pro-Ject vinyl Cleaner VC-S is equipped with a particularly generously sized tank that holds at least 2.5 liters.

This is facilitated by the so-called Pro-Ject VC-S Spout again, a kind of "bill-outlet", which is placed in the tank opening.
The cleaning is carried out at the Pro-Ject vinyl Cleaner VC-S first manually, in other words, the cleaning liquid is applied by hand, and uniformly applied with a brush, such as the Pro-Ject VC-S Brush, while the Pro-Ject vinyl Cleaner VC-S rotates the record to be cleaned.

Vinylgermany Review - The VC-S is a well thought through product to clean your beloved vinyl. Especially the fast cleaning process gives this vinyl cleaner an advantage over its competitors. I daresay this new vinylcleaner from Pro-Ject has a very good initial situation to be a hit in the market. It shows well thought out details, cleans incredibly fast and therefore is also a great alternative for the professionals. The biggest surprise is the suggested retail price, with that the vinyl cleaner VC-S has very good chances to become a permanent component in many households of vinyl fans. If you clean your LP according to the instructions, you may be shocked, that your record indeed is dry after one, maximum two rotations! Fingerprints on an older record have been gone using the included cleaning fluid, even purposely added grease stains and dust on openly left LPs has been completely removed after a standard procedure.

Polyethylene , Polypropylene , PVC & Mylar . To facilitate your choice, we created this page to explain the characteristics of these Four materials:
Polyethylene (PE) is Inexpensive flexible, soft & antistatic with a standard transparency. Suitable for Archival Storage.
Polypropylene (PP) Anti-Static & are ideal to highlight your records, thanks to their very high transparency and Glass like brilliance. The polypropylene Outer is very smooth and soft but also not as soft as the poly Outers This is because polypropylene is a harder material than polyethylene. Polylypropylene Provides cost-effective Long-Term Archival safe protection for all of you records - Acid Free , Crystal Clear Glass Like Material & 100% Transparent . Polypropylene has the strength and durability of Mylar, at a fraction of the cost
PVC Sleeves are both rigid and transparent (not as transparent as polypropylene). . Known for their durability and resistance.
but can discolour or cloud or crack with age or under UV light
PVC is NOT Suitable for safe Long-Term Archival safe protection for all of you records
PVC contains softners , plasticizers or stearates. PVC does migrate and can harm your Media .
Record sleeves are made of museum grade Archival Polyester (Mylar), an inert material of the highest clarity. Polyester will not discolor, damage or adhere to items placed inside it. It is a sturdy film that will give extra support to fragile documents.. Polyester is used worldwide in museums, libraries and archives. Polyester material is approved by the Library of Congress for archival storage. This material has passed the Photo Activity Test. PAT
Polypropylene has the strength and durability of Mylar, at a fraction of the cost
Long-Term Archival safe protection for all of you records - Acid Free , HDPE ( Rice Paper ) Lined , Anti-Static Inner Sleeves
It is nevertheless a safe bet that 99%+ % of Audiophiles & Record Collectors would agree that LPs shouldn't be stored in plain paper sleeves. Cheap, non-acid-free paper sleeves degrade with time. Paper is derived from the cell wall of plants; lignin, one of the chemicals contained in the cell walls, is unstable and light sensitive and decomposes into acidic products. While bleaching removes the lignin, the paper making process produces other detrimental byproducts such as hydrochloric acid or sulfuric acid.
Producing true, acid-free paper (pH >6) requires buffering with neutralizing chemicals. Paper sleeves are also hygroscopic (water absorbing) and as a consequence facilitate the growth of mold or fungus on the LP. The rationale for storing and preserving vinyl records in high quality, chemically inert, inner sleeves includes:Neutralizing the record's static charge and preventing static buildup when pulling the LP out of the record sleeve Preventing the record jacket or dirt from scratching the record
Long-Term Archival safe protection for all of you records - Acid Free , Lined , Anti-Static Inner Sleeves
Polyethylene film lining. The film has antistatic properties and contains no additives such as Softeners or similar products that could react with the vinyl of the records. Lined sleeves are much smoother on the inside than unlined paper sleeves, a difference you are sure to notice immediately when removing and inserting your records.
“HDPE sleeves have major advantages over paper inners. Paper ones have one smooth side but one rough side, so that they can be printed on, and this means that they are more prone to marking the vinyl. Furthermore, a lot of collectors are unaware of the fact that a HDPE bag should have paper that looks old, not bright white. Pristine paper is more expensive and naturally yellower, ash-free and unrecycled, while bright white has optical enhancers, costs a third less, but is lower quality and, with continuous usage, will shed particles and leave paper dust on the vinyl.
As for the poly inner itself, you need to ensure that it’s not PVC – you can tell by its smell, which is produced by artificial softeners. Polyethylene has no softeners, which can leach into paper or onto the vinyl, and though low-grade polyethylene can produce a white dust, HDPE sleeves will not,and they have the bonus of an anti-static additive that prevents vinyl from sticking to them. Static electricity attracts dust and you need to minimise its presence. Also, HDPE has a melting point of around 130C, so it’s stable in most heating conditions and it copes with humidity very well.
