- What is Matting?
The term archival or conservation matting means that the mats have several important functions. The most important being that it separates the glass from the art or document which prevents condensation that can develop on the inside of the glass from causing water damage, mold or mildew. Photographs should also be separated from the glass as they can stick to wet glass and damage the surface of the photo. Other types of art such as pastel or chalk should also be separated from glass for the same reason.
Mats used in archival or conservation framing is made from acid-free or lignin-free paper meaning that the paper used does not contain acids or chemical substances which can break down and over time cause the document or artwork to turn yellow and become brittle.
