ARCHES® Platine Sheets

The first paper specially designed for platinum-palladium photographic printing - the reference!
Made on a cylinder mould (traditional process)
Quality close to that of paper made by craft methods. The slow turning of the cylinder enables the fibres to be deposited evenly and spread in all directions over the wire. The paper is therefore more homogeneous and has good dimensional stability. Only papermaking on a cylinder mould can produce paper with deckle edges.

• Uses: Platinum, palladium photographic printing, blue prints – Conservation and protection of works in photographic form.
• Format: Sheets.
• Texture: Exceptionally smooth, satiny surface.
• 145, 310gsm: Ideal for platinum-palladium printing and conservation of photographic works, blue prints, platinum prints, albumenised prints, the silver gelatin process or colour processes. The 145 gsm is particularly suited to book publishing and smaller standard print sizes.
• Special Formulation: The paper is ideally sized to give the artist perfect impregnation.
• 100% Cotton: Pleasure of using a soft, supple, noble material (unbelievable feel).
• Colour: White. A very white colour which catches and highlights contrasts and brings out details. The higher Dmax reinforces the depth of blacks.
• Sheets: authenticity and prestige with deckle edges and watermark.
• Conservation: No alkaline reserve (as it is incompatible with photographic alternative processes), acid-free, no optical brightening agents. Choosing the right paper is essential to meeting the highest archival standards.
