Re-using old mounts


Sometimes it is necessary to re-use old or antique mounts. This old mount with lines needs to be used again, so a new mount will be cut using Bainbridge Alphamat Artcare mountboard, the borders will be cut a couple of mm narrower all round and will go under the old mount. I will post more on the Alphamat Artcare boards in the near future, but more details on them can be seen here:
Zeolites and Artcare Technology

These mountboards contain molecular traps which actively absorb and neutralize harmful gasses given off as paper and boards degrade.
I think in this case, where it is the customers wish to keep the old mount, then the use of this type of mountboard is the best solution.
