Artgrafix Introduces Acid Free Cold Mount Adhesives and Laminates for
Displaying Fine Art Inkjet Prints
Beacon Falls, CT, August 14, 2007 - Artgrafix has introduced a complete range of cold mount adhesives and
laminates in complementary sizes to fine art media. The adhesives do not contain any acidic components that
could affect the pH of aqueous inks. These adhesives meet the requirements in accordance to the Library of
Congress Preservation Specification for the storage of Artifacts (Specification 100-101 6/18/02 & 100-111 6/19/02).
The mounting adhesive is coated on both sides of an inert clear polyester film. This provides a physical barrier
between the rigid substrate and the print, eliminating acid migration from the mounting board to the print. It also
allows the use of non-archival boards, such as Gator Board, for the display of fine art prints. Both the mounting
adhesive and over-laminating films use a long-life, non-yellowing optically clear adhesive.
Artgrafix has sized these films for fine art media and are available in cut sheets and rolls 18", 25", 38" and 45"
wide. Commenting on these films, Jeff Stover stated, "we had a number of requests from printers who wanted to
insure the laminating films they were using were consistent with the archival nature of the media they are printing
on." Regarding the sizing of the rolls Stover added "using a film which is closer in size to the print being laminated
makes it easier to process and given the value of these prints, this reduces waste and saves money. And you
are not paying for the film you can not use."
