General, a white rigid board used for matting, housing and Mylboards.
Must meet testing requirements such as; pH of 7, unbuffered, at least 87% "rag or other high alpha-cellulose content pulp", and neutral sizing among other qualifications to ensure the material is inert and upholds conservation grade qualities.
Occasionally we come across materials that have an acidic or slightly acidic chemical makeup which upon neutralization can damage or alter the material in unwanted ways. In these situations an unbuffered board such as Photomount is ideal for matting, backing, and/or housing necessarily acidic materials.
Volara is a chemically inert, smooth surfaced foam CCH uses to line boxes and enclosures for delicate items.
It can be easily cut into custom shapes and sizes by hand or by the Kasemake box machine, which makes Volara an ideal and versatile material for lining Ethafoam bumpers, padding the interior of boxes, and more.
Hot melt is a thermoplastic resin adhesive that comes in a solid, stick-like form. It is inserted in a heating gun which warms the stick up in order to melt it. The adhesive is extruded through the nozzle of the gun at a high temperature. The items intended for adherence can be quickly affixed to one another, the hot melt glue will then rapidly cool and set up, successfully adhered the two intended surfaces together.
