Reynold's Wrap (S/F)

Reynolds Wrap Aluminum Foil was introduced in 1947, it was advertised as “the pure aluminum foil for 1,001 kitchen miracles.”  Paleontologists have also found good use for it, taking advantage of its ability to conform to the shape of an object it is placed over.  Seen next to the skeleton at the paleontology dig, aluminum foil is used in the process of placing a plaster jacket over the fossil.  The foil is used to make a separating layer between the fossil with its rock matrix and the plaster jacket, as well as to wrap smaller specimens, which protects the fossils during transport. A box of Reynolds Wrap was seen at the dig site near Snakewater, just before John Hammond offered to fund Dr. Sattler and Dr. Grant‘s dig.
