Board & Paper
Paper & Tissue
Excellent for interleaving prints, drawings, maps and for protecting artifacts and collectibles. Archival Tissue is widely used by both major museums and private individuals to wrap gowns, wedding dresses, historic uniforms and other textile items.
A high-quality archival tissue paper for interleaving and wrapping. It is acid-and lignin-free, and thin for easy folding, padding or crumpling without hard edges. It is buffered with calcium carbonate for added protection against acid migration. The Buffered Tissue is available in packages of 480 sheets or 1,000 ft. long rolls in various widths.
An Un-Buffered Archival Tissue is also available in rolls that are 24" wide x 1000 ft. long (item #45-2400). This Un-Buffered Tissue should be used in applications where the use of calcium carbonate buffering is not advised. This tissue was designed to be used for protecting protein-based textiles such as silk and wool, and for certain photographic prints such as cyanotypes (blue prints) or those made using the dye-transfer process. Un-buffered tissues are also anti-tarnish and are recommended for wrapping & storing silver and other metals. (However, exposure to air and other elements may still cause tarnish to occur to your collection over time. Our Un-buffered Archival Tissue will not contribute to this process.)
Please Note: Archival Methods recommends that you use our Shredded Archival Tissue to cushion ornaments, glass and other breakables for long term storage or transportation.
Corrugated boxes are easily assembled with a self-locking tab design and are manufactured from acid- and lignin-free paper. For added protection from acidic migration the gray corrugated board has a 3% calcium carbonate buffering.
