Conservation-quality, gummed tape for mounting, framing and bookbinding developed by Conservation By Design. Tyvek® is a synthetic fibre made from spunbonded Polyolefin which is inert and acid-free. Made using 105gsm Tyvek® 1057 D with a water-activated, starch adhesive, pH7.5.
This tape offers greater strength yet is thinner than conventional gummed cloth-mounting tapes. This is beneficial when used for hinging over-mounts to be stored in Solander boxes as it will create less ‘fanning’ to the taped side, which means the mounts will lay flatter. It has many other uses including the production of custom made portfolios by combining the Black and White versions.
Available in White.
Activate with a damp sponge, roller or fine mist spray. Do not over-moisten as this may remove the adhesive from the tape.
