Mat board question

Would an acid free mat board placed between a print and a non-archival mat board (crescent Berkshire mat) be enough to prevent any acid burn. The print is not anything of huge value, but I just assume be safe.

you really want your prints sandwiched between a museum cotton rag matte. they r acid free; then u can back it with a board, maybe foamcore, but the print shouldn't be touching anything acidic for long term display :wink:

To clarify the print is sandwiched between acid free foam core and acid free mat board, but there is a second top mat that I'm not positive its acid free. The print itself is not in direct contact with the questionable mat

Is there a chemist in the house?

I've done acid a few times, I say it's cool.
