Thinner than foam core and still stiff
Utility backing is approximately the thickness of mat board. Like mat board, it is a paper based product. It comes in black single and double thick and white single thick. Although usually not used in larger pieces unless it is a framed piece, utility backing is userful when the rabbet of the frame is too small to accommodate foam core. It has a smooth surface. Unlike vendors who use a "guillotine" cutter to cut stacks of backs at the same time, our backs are cut precisely and cleanly on our CNC machinery. The outside dimensions are extremely exact so no extra cutting is required...our mats and backs are precisely the same size so the back does not "peak" out below the mat. Utility backing is a staple of our industry. We have sold the same backing material for decades. Siongle thick is about .050 on an inch, about the same as a 4 ply mat.
