What is acid free?

ACID FREE

Many papers can be considered acid free immediately after manufacture however unless they have been buffered, i.e. treated with a neutralising agent, chemical reactions with substances such as sizing or bleaching will cause the paper to become acidic over time. All plastic by it's nature is acid free however some plastic is unsafe for use in photo albums.
