What Is Acid-Free—and Why Does It Matter?
If an acidic product comes into contact with paper, photos, textiles or other similar items, the acid can migrate, causing permanent damage and decay. This is why it is so very important to use good quality Acid Free and archival materials for the preservation of your treasured memories.
Storage in archival products will slow the aging process and add years of life to the items you value. It is better to prevent damage and deterioration, than try to repair or correct it.
If you don’t use true acid free materials you will find that your artefacts , papers and photos may discolour or disintegrate more quickly than they would naturally.
