 Quality Art Panels

There are many companies that  make "canvas boards."   However, we merge high quality linens with several different mounting surfaces.  

We mount our fine linens on Gatorboard and Birch panels.   

All our products are mounted with Beva.  Beva prevents acidic migration from the substrate from penetrating into the linen. The adhesive used for all linen is archival, strong and acts as a size.   All of our panels are custom made and in addition to the more common sizes, custom sizes are available upon request. Please contact us directly for price quotes. 

Gatorboard                                                                       

Gatorboard  panels are the perfect choice for an artist. They are a lightweight, manmade wood-polystyrene product that has an inert acidic content of 6.5~7.0 pH—inert meaning they will not become more acidic over time. They are less acidic than hardboard!  The panels can handle all types of weather with ease. Whether you’re in rain, snow, or in the heat, the panels hold up quite well. The standard panel is 3/16” thick or a 1/2” panel is used for sizes 18”x24” and above.  Raw unmounted Gatorboard  is also available in standard or custom sizes.

Baltic Birch – Premium Panels with backside coating of Polyurethane

We offer our linens mounted on 1/8” and 1/4” Baltic Birch.  We seal the back of the panels with triple coat of polyurethane. This seals the wood from moisture and minimizes warping (wood still has the tendency to warp).  This also adds protection and quality for the archival concerns of your artwork.

Adhesive – BEVA is an acid free barrier

Our adhesive is BEVA.  It is totally compatible with the size used on linens. It is designed specifically for art conservation. It is heat or solvent reversible. The linen will be preserved and if the support is damaged the linen can be removed and remounted to a new surface by a conservator. Reactivation with heat begins at about 160 degrees Fahrenheit.  Care must be taken to avoid loosening the linen. It is advised not to leave panels in car windows or car trunks for extended periods of time.

Gatorboard           Birch

Gatorboard

Gatorboard panels are a great choice for the artist. They are a lightweight man made wood-polystyrene product.   The standard panel is 3/16” thick.  Those sizes marked with an asterisk (*) are mounted on 1/2 " thick Gatorboard and 1/2" is used for larger custom sizes.wpe2.jpg (65393 bytes)  

The panels are moisture proof and handle all types of weather with ease. Whether you’re in rain, snow, or in the heat, the panels hold up quite well.  Our panels do not warp, wave, wrinkle or change when they go from one climate to another.
