>>>A hypochondriac friend dug out her stash of 3M N95 masks and every elastomer band broke when she tried to wear them to go out.

I've had success in long-term storage things like rubber bands in sealed jars purged with nitrogen. I'm guessing the oxygen in the air degrades the rubber. Maybe that would have worked for the masks. Everyone keeps a tank or two of nitrogen around, right?
