STANDARD, Tru-White™ Core, Acid-Free, Lignin-Free, 4 Ply
Our Best Seller. Our best value. Tru-White™ core mats are our Standard mat. Unlike many other mats called "Standard" that are really economy mats, our Tru-White™ core mats are not only "acid-free"; they are lignen free like Archival Conservation mats. Lignin is the ingredient in wood fibre that causes acid. If not removed, acid-neutral or acid-free mats are simply mats that will develop acid in a relatively short time. They are not considered archival mats because they use less expensive water based inks instead of pigmented inks for the face color, use optical brighteners to make colors look "brighter" and contain some recycled material, about 15%. Tru-White™ gives you quality and value. Click on image to select mat sizes and colors.
MAT ONLY-One Precut Window, 4 ply Standard Tru-White™ Core
Standard Sizes, Brightest Core, Acid And Lignin Free
"Standard" with a difference. Besides the beautiful white core, Tru-White™ core mats are not only acid free-they are lignin free. Why does that matter? Acid is the natural property of paper mats. It causes the core to change color and degrades the image. Lignin is the ingredient in paper that causes the acid. If you don't take it out, an "acid-free" mat turns acidic in a relatively short time. Mats are approximately .050 thick and mat windows, unless specifically noted are centered so they can be used with a landscape image (horizontal) or a portrait image (vertical). All mats are buffered with calcium carbonate to resist acidity from the environment and other materials.
