As an example how would you bring Ash from a crime scene to a condition that it can be handled examined and investigated? Basically the idea is you replace every bit of air in that ash with plastic or other resins.
The process is not really that complicated to build but would be time consuming to use with frames. unless you built a chamber that woudl hold many frames at one. IN many cases the process includes Pressure. vacuum and heat. But some of these are requirements of the resins in use and not critical to the displacement of air. The pressure then vacuum cycle is far more relevant to that issue.
One such system you may be familiar with is how they can recover finger prints on objects with the use of a vacuum chamber and vaporized super glue. Super glue is manly a fast curing plastic. The vacuum causes the glue to replace the air in the oils and dirt of the print.
In all I am not sure the benefit would justify the cost or effort.
