The Arion is 6 inches long, by 1 and 9/16 inches wide,
and 1 inch in depth. It fits in a variety of cases, including cello,
guitar, viola, violin, and many more.
How long will my Arion last?
The proprietary special solution combined with the hydrogels will
last for many years. However, we recommend replacing
your Arion on an annual basis, as environmental elements may
become trapped in the casing, weakening the solution.
