Barrier board - Comes standard with metal edges and ships assembled.
Corrugated board - Ships flat and requires assembly.
Buffered - Buffered materials have an alkaline reserve, or buffer, to counteract acids that may form in the material in the future. Cellulose fibers (e.g., cotton, flax, linen, jute) and plant-based specimens should be stored in buffered material to protect against migrant acidity.
Unbuffered - Artifacts that contain animal proteins (e.g., wool, silk, leather, feathers, pearls) are best stored in unbuffered material. If textile fiber content or dyes are unknown, choose unbuffered. Blueprints should never come in contact with buffered material, and many archivists also prefer to store albumen prints and cyanotypes in unbuffered material. Since buffering agents don’t migrate, a buffered box can be used if unbuffered tissue or wrapping material surrounds the item.
DuraShield™ - A clear, matte laminate coating that resists moisture, fingerprints and abrasions.
