  • Construction
    Single Ply, Clay Coating
    Single ply with a triple clay coating on both sides. This is not a layered product like 2 ply or 4 ply matte board.
  • Weight
    650 GSM
    Grams per square metre - the weight of the board
  • Thickness
    Approx 1mm
    Quite rigid, especially at the smaller sizes. Multiple sheets can be layered to achieve greater rigidity at the larger sizes if needed.
  • pH Neutral
    Also known as acid free. These are neither acidic nor basic.
  • Buffered
    These are not calcium buffered. Whilst buffering can provide further protection against acidification through age, it can also have adverse reactions with protein based materials.
  • Conservation Appropriate
    Suitable for long term print storage and mounting, as well as for presentation tasks.
