Acid Free Unbuffered Tissue 20x30"
Best used for wrapping certain textiles such as silk or leather items.
Most of the time, we recommend buffered acid free tissue to be used for long term storage products. It's buffered and lasts longer.
While this tissue is acid free and archival, it is not buffered. We recommend that it be used when you aren't sure that the product you are protecting is sensitive to the buffered surface of the other tissue.
What kinds of materials is unbuffered tissue good for? Use this Acid Free & Lignin Free Tissue when you have protein based Textiles such as silk and wool. Use it for leather items, too.
The tissue is not buffered. Therefore it is susceptible to acid migration from nearby items. Over time (and this includes time capsules), this tissue paper will become acidic and brittle. The acidity will transfer to adjacent objects (things it's lying next to). This in turn causes the objects to become weaker and possibly discolored. Acid free tissue papers are specially processed to remove such contaminants. These nonbuffered tissues start out at a pH of 7, but over time the pH will degrade. This non-buffered acid-free tissue has a smooth finish. It works great for padding, wrapping, and cushioning textiles such as silk.
Its weight is 10lb. (24g/m2).
When in doubt about a color photograph, use a plastic sleeve first before storing with buffered paper.
