RagMat™ Museum Solids Mounting Boards
For centuries, cotton rag paper, prized for strength, purity and stability,
has been the choice of artists, composers, writers and printers. Today it
is specified for currency, stock certificates and government documents.
Cotton rag matboard was designed specifically for the Metropolitan
Museum of Art in New York in the late 1920s.

Today, virtually all of the museums and libraries rely on cotton rag matboard, often referred to as museum board. Crescent’s entire line of cotton RagMat™, the industry’s most trusted brand of cotton rag matboard, is still produced
following the time-honored practice of making paper from cotton fiber.

It’s a Crescent tradition that continues to stand the test of time.
100% cotton boards keep artwork, memoriblia, and photographs
safe. Premium Museum RagMat™ boards provide optimum archival
protection for fine works of art on paper.

Recommended for valuable original works of art, rare and antique documents
and items of historical importance.
