The interest in certifying papers according to different archivability standards is increasing, resulting in more and more assignments for MoRe. There are for instance different methods for archival papers where the main component is cotton and for document papers produced from chemical pulp, both as regards how the paper's strength characteristics change over time and how brightness and nuance are affected by aging.
MoRe has the possibility to test and certify papers for archivability according to all requested methods as we have all the equipment necessary for chemical analyses as well as paper testing, including aging chambers. In an aging chamber a paper is aged very quickly under controlled light, temperature and moisture conditions, in order to be able to check strength characteristics as well as how brightness and nuance, i.e. yellowing, change.
The reason why customers turn to us for these tests is that we are independent and credible when certifying their papers.
