Seal the Back of a Frame for Conservation

Gummed tapes are preferred for conservation framing as they’re water activated and reversible.

Gummed Brown Tape can be moistening evenly with the Gummed Tape Wetter or a barely damp sponge.

Our gummed tape is also made with a starch adhesive so it is more sustainable. When framing for damp environments such as bathrooms, consider Correx Fluted Polyprop backing board paired with Lineco Frame Sealing Tape - the aluminium backing helps prevent moisture penetration.
