Double-Clay coated Foam Board, side view Standard White with White Core  [Foam Board Handling
Premium Foam is available in 25 sheet cartons. Sorry, no Shipping on broken cartons. It is available in black foam with black paper
, or white foam with white paper. These are laminated to form the board.
White  is ideal for all non-archival mounting purposes. Conveniently lightweight yet sturdy enough to resist denting. Designed to facilitate clean, crisp cuts and edges. Clay-coated for an extra-smooth surface and dual-sided with bright white surfaces. Available in popular widths and sizes, 
   
Foam core
is an extruded polystyrene between two sheets of white clay coated paper. Because of its light weight, durability, flatness, rigidity, structural strength and moisture resistance, It has a wide variety of uses including picture frame backing, dry mounting, vac-u-press wet mounting, etc. Caution: Foam core with white clay coated paper is slightly acidic, having a pH range of 6.5-7.0.

Acid-Free  provides a standard buffered acid-free surface with a chemically inert core for mounting artwork, photographs, and important documents. The facing paper on both sides of the board has a pH between 7.7 and 8.5 and is buffered.
     
Acid free Foam core was designed to meet specific conservation standards for preserving works of art. Acid free Foam core can be used for mounting large artwork, archival frame backing and creating large format storage folders. The extruded polystyrene core is laminated between two sheets of warm white acid free barrier paper

Black-On-Black  is black through the core so there's never a need to color, cover, or disguise the edges. No matter how you cut it the edges remain smooth, flawless and solid black. Black-On-Black is available in 3/16" and 1/2" thickness and a full range of sheet sizes.

Pillocore Specially developed for die cutting, its special core compresses to a closed or "pillowed" edge. It can also be embossed while die cutting to produce interesting dimensional effects.The "Pillowed" edge of the Pillocore Sheet

Single-Step sheet has been precoated on one side with a heat-activated adhesive. The heat and pressure of a dry mounting press activate the adhesive coating forming a smooth, permanent bond.
Foam-X Fix board has a repositionable adhesive (for up to 2 hours) surface on one side for mounting 
Quick Stik
board has a pressure-sensitive adhesive surface on one side for mounting virtually any type of art work, providing a good alternative to messy sprays.
