Archival Methods Linen Tape - 1" x 60 yd Roll - White

Archival Methods White Linen Tape is perfect for hinging window mats, map or pamphlet folders or for bookbinding applications.

The artwork is not finished until the print is correctly matted. Traditional tape (adhesive or otherwise) will lead to corrosion and gradual degradation of your mat. What is needed for true archival protection, is an archival tape that will not injure the mat. Archival Methods Linen Tape provides that medium.

Note! Linen tape should not be used directly on artwork. The thickness of the linen and the strength of the adhesive make this type of tape a poor choice for hinging artwork. Unfortunately this product was recommended for hinging artwork in some literature in the past

Made of cambric-quality, tightly-woven linen which is acid-free
Contains no starch fillers and will not flake or become brittle
The pH-neutral, water-activated adhesive will securely hold the window mat to the backing board
Use the 1.5" tape for larger mats over 20" long
Dimensions 1" x 60 yd (25 mm x 55m)

    Comments about Archival Methods Linen Tape - 1" x 60 yd Roll - White:

    This tape is rather thick and coarse which I did not expect, but then again, I have zero experience with other linen tapes. This is probably overkill for my purposes, but I image it would be great for larger works 16x20 and over. I gave it 4 stars because it has this powdery stuff that was sprinkling all over the place. Again, this may be the case for all water-activated linen tapes, I don't know.

      Comments about Archival Methods Linen Tape - 1" x 60 yd Roll - White:

      Very easy to apply and remove. I bought an old dispenser for water activated packing tape to use with this product which makes it very easy to apply. Just put the handle and a measured amount is dispensed and cut off.

      If you need to un-mount the photo simply wet the tape with a sponge until the adhesive softens. Then it can be removed without leaving any trace adhesive behind.

        This Tape is Messy and Hard to Use

        By Andra

        from Richmond, VA

        Verified Buyer

        Pros

          Cons

          • Not self-adhesive
          • Requires water

          Best Uses

            Comments about Archival Methods Linen Tape - 1" x 60 yd Roll - White:

            This tape requires you to add water in order for the tape to become sticky. It's hard to determine the correct ratio of water to tape and can be too wet or not enough easily. I stopped using this tape and purchased a tape with removable backing that is self adhesive.
