Abacus Resources blotting paper is a soft, very absorbent paper traditionally used to blot excess ink when writing letters with a dip or fountain pen but also used to absorb moisture when pressing flowers and for lifting out areas of wet watercolour.
The heavier weight 315gsm sheets are acid free and used extensively by screen printers in print making processes. The 315gsm sheets are slightly textured and thick, yet soft, to give high bulk and absorbency, contain no sizing and are useful for other uses where extra absorbency is required. To enhance the properties of the 315gsm sheets, there is a high cotton content and we buffer each sheet with calcium carbonate to give a pH value above 8.5.
If used carefully and dried in clean conditions, the sheets are re-usable many times over.
All sheets have full archival specification.
