Artcare™ Archival Foamboard


[Nielsen & Bainbridge] A trademark for a lightweight rigid laminated foam. Artcare (TM) foamboard is made using MicroChamber® technology. It contains polystyrene foam sheets embedded with zeolites to absorb offgassing products along with buffers (calcium carbonate) to neutralize harmful acidic vapors. The rigid, strong, flat panels are water-resistant and dimensionally stable. Direct sunlight will cause bleaching and degradation of any unprotected foam.
