ARCHIVAL COROPLAST
BACKING BOARDS

Coroplast® Archival is a custom frame backing board that is chemically inert, extremely durable plastic material used for backing. It is composed of extruded twinwall fluted polypropylene copolymer. It is free from additives such as coloring agents and antistatic & ultraviolet inhibitors. Coroplast is very popular with museum preparators because it is  a superior long-term substrate with no out-gassing. Because of its translucent and fluted qualities, Coroplast is best-suited to be used in conjunction with a 4 ply sized board, to add support and rigidity, rather than be a single backing in contact with one’s art. They are available in 1/8" and 3/16" widths. Maximum size is 48" x 96".
