Foilatack’ Moisture Barrier Foamboard
Lightweight panel with a laminated inert polystyrene core. Faced on two sides with a matt, white, coated 300gsm paper. The paper is lined on one side with an aluminium foil of 25 micron. The paper on the other side is covered with an acrylic, self-adhesive film under a peel-off silicone release paper. This adhesive layer allows the user to select and apply a material of choice. Foilatack’ makes an ideal conservation backing board for canvases or frames. Use the aluminium layer on the outside as a barrier against moisture coming from the wall. On the inner side of the frame use a material of choice applied to the pressure-sensitive adhesive. For example, a layer of TimecareË Conservation or 100% cotton Museum Board, possibly with Purification Paint’ applied to it to scavenger and purify the air within the enclosed frame. Alternatively apply a layer of Active Charcoal Cloth’, Corrosion InterceptË or RIBS Reactive InterceptË Barrier Foil to scavenge and purify the air. Foilatack’ is light, easy-to-cut, moisture-proof and offers good puncture-resistance which can be improved by applying extra layers to the self-adhesive side. Using the self-adhesive layer, panels can be layered to produce thicker boards. If Foilatack’ is off-set using the adhesive layer boards can be overlapped to created larger size boards. These boards can also be used for model-making, inkjet printing or as temporary exhibition panels for poster displays.
