The Conservation By Design range of boards in this catalogue have been developed over many years. They have clearly defined specifications and are produced under controlled manufacturing conditions allowing those responsible for conserving and preserving the collections of Museums, Galleries, Libraries and Archives to confidently select these products for their application.
‘Board’ is a broad term that incorporates everything from a thick paper to honeycomb panels. Mostly when we think of board we think of paper based items but in this catalogue it can include synthetic materials such as Plastazote® polyethylene foam or composite materials like Gatorfoam®; which combines paper with polystyrene foam.
Paper based board can be made with or without adhesive; the method of manufacture chosen will depend on the end user application. We offer boards for making storage boxes and folders, supporting, mounting and framing objects as well as boards for bookbinders. Although CXD specialise in boards of the highest archival specification, for applications where this level is not required we have included a selection of lower quality boards.
