    White Core is a high quality mat designed for Customer’s who want the impact of a bright white bevel that will not discolour but do not require the qualities or price of conservation matboard. With a range of over 220 references in colour, size, texture and designer finishes, we offer the PETEBORO WHITE CORE range which will help you meet all your designing challenges.

    What makes PETERBORO WHITE CORE different?

    It has a unique construction with each component buffered to a pH of 8.2 +/-0.5% and containing a minimum 3% reserve of calcium carbonate to provide years of stability.


    The surface paper is buffered and lignin free. It has a high strength quality to minimize surface damage.

  • CORE

    The Peterboro core is pure white and has been buffered against acids to ensure bright white bevels and v groves for years to come. The specially designed fibre morphology and density specifications means Peterboro Whitecore cuts cleaner and results in smoother bevels.


    Peterboro is one of the only company’s to use high quality conservation backing paper on all their white core mat boards.


    The WHITE CORE line has one of the highest specifications in the market. The result is a superior mat that will stand the test of time, resisting the effects of acid degradation and remaining bright.


    Peterboro Black Core mats are designed with a deep, rich, black core. At times when a white bevel is distracting, a Black Core allows the viewer’s eye to focus on the art and not the bright bevel. Black Core mats may also be used to give an extra element of design without the use of a second mat and are especially effective when v-grooves are used.

    Black Core mats are made with a buffered surface paper, a black core with a proprietary retention chemistry to minimize rub off. Dark Grey, non transferring conservation grade backing paper is used to provide a seamless visual appearance.

    They are ideally suited to Black and White Photography, Prints, Awards, Memorabilia or any other art that is enhanced by a dark accent line.
