White Packing Paper
Size: 500mm x 750mm Available in quantities of 50 sheets, 100 sheets or a full ream Unprinted newsprint paper is ideal for wrapping glassware and ceramics Protect crockery, china, ornaments and general household breakables, Packing paper prevents chipping and scratching by direct contact. Packing paper can absorb shocks when goods are in transit. Packing Paper has to be the ultimate in recycled and eco-friendly packaging. It was invented in 1844 by John Fenerty in Canada as a low-cost but strong paper that newspaper printers could use. It is naturally not the "bright white" that you would see with, for example, office printing paper, as it is manufactured without any chemical processes ... which means it's eco-friendly. And to make it even more eco-friendly ... during the printing of newspapers, the paper is cut down to "newspaper" size. Rather than being disposed of as waste, the offcuts are used as the Packing Paper that you are now considering buying!
Acid Free Tissue Paper
Size: 500mm x 700mm Paper: 17gsm Machine Glazed Type: Unbuffered Ideal for packaging, interleaving and general purpose protection. This Unbuffered Acid Free Tissue Paper will add extra protection to items that you need to store. Acid Free means that the tissue is free of acids that will cause it to deteriorate over time and damage the items that it touches. Unbuffered tissue lacks the buffering reserve to prevent future acidity. It is used with materials that are sensitive to a higher pH level. Unbuffered White Acid Free Tissue Paper can be used to protect: natural fibre clothing (eg: linen, cotton, wool, silk), textiles (eg quilts), heirloom clothing (eg wedding gowns/veils), leather, jewellery, sterling silver, and all collectibles. Acid Free Tissue is so called because if it is immersed and infused in water it yields a neutral pH (7). Paper that is made from wood-based pulp that has not had it's lignin content removed will be naturally slightly off-white (like Packing Paper) and will deteriorate over time. In the 1930s, William Barrow, who was a chemist as well as a librarian, reported on the deterioration of acidic papers in the libraries where he worked. Measures were taken to improve the quality of the papers used. Acid Free Tissue is treated with a mild base (usually calcium or magnesium bicarbonate) to neutralise the natural acids occurring in wood-pulp. This means that Acid Free Tissue Paper (or Alkaline Paper, as it can be known as) has an approximate life expectancy of approximately 500 years. This gives huge preservation benefits to whatever it is used or wrapped in.# Because there are fewer corrosive chemicals used in the making of Acid Free Tissue, the manufacture process is considered significantly more environmentally friendly ... waste water and paper by-products can be recycled, energy can be saved in the drying abnd refining process, and Acid Free Tissue can be easily recycled.
