A set of highly polished cast-iron rolls, resting one on the other in a vertical bank at the dry end of the paper machine. A set of alternating polished steel and composition rolls resting one on the other in a vertical bankcapable of producing a more uniform smoothness and gloss than a machine calender; thus used to produce a smoother, glossier and denser sheet; usually off-machine. An on - machine device consisting of two or more pairs of steel and composition rolls; it is designed to achieve much of the quality of a Supercalender, with much of the production advantage of being on machine, but without the severe operating difficulties of an on-machine Supercalender.
If you are already aware of the benefits of storing your treasures in acid free - archival quality tissue paper you may wish to proceed directly to the Ordering Details. All acid free tissue is NOT created equal!!
Some sellers offer small skimpy sheets or tissue that is so thin and lightweight that it tears easily. Worse yet I have know clients who have bought "Museum quality" tissue only to find out that they wrapped their heirlooms in overpriced white gift tissue that offered NO archival protection.
Acid Free Archival Tissue helps protect your treasures without the fear of damage from the wood acids present in many other wrapping materials such as regular tissue paper and newsprint. Additionally it helps slow the deterioration of articles made from paper products like post cards and other paper memorabilia when used as an interleaving or wrapping product.
These stains may be removed via the use of bleaching agent but the fabric is none the less weakened by the exposure to the wood acid. Cedar chests are great for deterring moths and similar pestilence but direct contact between fabric and wood, for lengthy periods of time is most always detrimental to the cloth.
Similar yellowing will also be caused if the fabric is left in direct contact with any product containing wood pulp and therefore acid. Common items containing wood acid are regular tissue paper and cardboard.
Fine vintage an antique textile items should NOT be stored AFTER starching - starch can attract detrimental pestilence and may cause yellowing of the material in time approx. Linens should be stored without starch and starched just before use to help conserve the textile fibers that comprise the cloth.
Spray starch is just fine for this occasion when used sparingly. Plastic deteriorates over time exposing the fabric to poly vinyl chloride gasses which may cause yellowing.
For the best results fine vintage linens and textiles should be carefully stored loosely folded and wrapped in acid and lignin-free pH neutral tissue paper OR unbleached muslin cloth if they are not in continual or rotational use at least every 2 months.
For best results the muslin must have been rinsed WITHOUT soap or detergent of any kind until you would drink the water - even then the pH neutrality may be questionable due to the production methods used in fabricating the muslin cloth.Tissue paper has a multitude of uses from wrapping, packing and a multitude of crafts or gifts.
Many retailers choose to use eye catching colours such as red, orange or pink tissue paper to wrap and pack a host of items from clothing to crockery and homewares.
