Acid Free Foam Board

The same wieght and properties of regular foam board, cuts easily with a knife and the edges do not pinch when cut but spring back to full thickness. This board is mainly used in picture framing.

For framing purposes, acid free foam board is available. It is useful for mounting art work  where you do not want an acidic surface to touch your original acid free art paper . This is not a perfect archival solution however as the foam will off gas a bit over time. For perfect archival framing and mounting, we carry Bainbridge Art Care Archival Foam Board, see description at bottom of this page. 

Custom Cuts: please note:

Special cuts may be short up to 1/8". Let us know if you need your sizes exact, you may receive less pieces.

black foam board

Bainbridge Black Acid Free Foam Board

Black acid free artcare is created especially for framing where you wish to see the black border or for mounting photographs where a black surface allows the borer to show. Otherwise if the foam board is to be completely covered with your mount, then black foam board's only advantage is the surface is less smooth and there a tighter bond is achieved with a adhesive. Black on black delivers two sided acid free protection, protecting mounted artwork from
damaging acids.. Lightweight, rigid, easy to cut and smooth mounting surfaces. Choose from 1/8" or 3/16" thick. 25 Sheets per carton.

Bainbridge ArtCare White Archival Acid Free Foam Board

Not all foamboard is created equal. Artcare
Archival Foamboard from Bainbridge
is the only one that's truly archival. Other foamboards offer
an archival surface, while the foam itself gives
off gases that can fade, damage and deteriorate
your customers' artwork. But Artcare, with its
MicroChamber technology, absorbs and
neutralizes those harmful gases and protects
the art well into the future. Plus, our opaque,
lightly textured surface papers eliminate show-
through and feature a soft white or black
color that is suitable for floating applications.
Available in White, Black, and 100% cotton
rag surface.

artcare archival acid free foam board

White surface and core (smooth finish)

Artcare from Bainbridge is the only foamboard that is archival because of the way the foam is made it neautralizes the off gasses from the foam itself. So the paper surface is either acid free paper or cotton rag and the core is special in that it does not give off the harmful gasses that can cause the artwork to deteroriate over time.

Bainbrige ArtCare Acid Free Foam Core Board.
Archival Foamboard with two sided acid free protection,
protects artwork from corroding acids found in regular foam core board.
Lightweight, rigid, easy to cut with smooth mounting surfaces.
Choose from 1/8" or 3/16" thick. 25 sheets per carton.

Artcare Foamboard goes the extra mile to
actively protect artwork and trap harmful
substances that are out gassed by all other
foamboards. As this illustration shows, all
foamboard naturally gives off a variety of volatile
compounds which can visibly damage art. Only
Artcare Archival Foamboard is chemically and
physically engineered to trap the harmful gases
and protect the artwork mounted on it.
