I have several 135 and super8 unexposed film rolls and I'd like to store them in the fridge. However, my fridge has that air ionizer (which should keep food fresh for longer time). Should this ionizer actually damage the film itself? Thanks.
Air is a mix of nitrogen and oxygen and other gasses. It is ionized by a device it outputs high voltage. Now film is sensitive to light and ionizing radiation. Could the ionizing device in the refrigerator output X-ray etc.? Possible but unlikely.
Film is a perishable, it has a shelf life. We can prolong shelf life by refrigeration and by protecting the film from humid conditions. Boxed film has a moisture barrier envelop. The film inside is at near zero as to humidity. Once the packaging is compromised, the shelf life decreases.
I think you can safely store film in refrigerators with an ionizing device.
