Archival Methods 40-403-5 overview

  • 1Description

Archival Methods 4-Ply Bright White 100% Cotton Museum Board contains 5 boards that measure 11 x 14" each. The board is a high-quality mat board used for many fine print and document projects. Whether for traditional print or digital technology, this board will provide a solid, acid-free backing that is perfect for display purposes. It can also be used for small mat cutting where, for example, a 2-ply board will provide a 1/32" separation between the work and the glazing.  

Your best print deserves the best mount possible. Presentation is half the battle and Archival Methods gives you the way to show off your best work. This is quality board designed for archival display.

For window mats and mat backing, Archival Methods recommends a thickness of 4-Ply, which creates a 1/16" separation between artwork and glazing and provides a flat, supportive backing.

Sizing Agents

Internal Sizing
Sizing agents are used to prevent liquid from being absorbed into the board during the manufacturing process. There are three types of internal sizing: acid sizing, neutral sizing, alkaline sizing. This is done to strengthen the inside fibers of the board
External Sizing
This is a process used to enhance the surface properties of the board (i.e. matte, glossy) and are characterized by the use of a alkaline pH-8.5 starch
No alum is used in the manufacturing process

    4-Ply Bright White 100% Cotton Museum Board (11 x 14", 5 Boards) is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 2 out of 5 by from More Handling Care Is Needed The product itself is great. However, it was received with damaged edges. Much more care in handling is needed. Perhaps, edge protectors are needed.
