Paper that has a neutral or basic pH (7 or slightly greater). It can be made from any cellulose fiber as long as the active acid pulp is eliminated during processing. It is also lignin and sulfur free. Acid-free paper addresses the problem of preserving documents for long periods.

Paper made from wood-based pulp that has not had its lignin removed goes yellow and deteriorates over time.  When exposed to light and/or heat, the molecules in the acidic paper will break down even faster. It was only in the 1930s that the effects of wood-pulp paper became known, when William Barrow (a librarian) published a report about the deterioration of acidic paper in the libraries. For fear of the gradual disintegration of written materials, measures have been taken to improve the quality of paper.

A synthetic (polypropylene) substrate is born with a non-porous surface that repels water. YUPO® gives visual artists an amazingly beautiful canvas to work with. Its bright white, smooth finish gives artists the flexibility to work in several different mediums to achieve unique and creative results.Painting or drawing on the ultra-smooth surface of YUPO® is different than regular watercolor or drawing paper, and will require some adjustments by the artist. The surface may be wiped clean to restore the original white of the sheet, making it an excellent surface for beginners. YUPO® is also a very exciting substrate for more advanced and experimental artists. Its creative possibilities and suitable applications are infinite.YUPO® - a slick, smooth, non-absorbent substrate that dramatically changes the way you paint, print or draw. Using this sheet, you can capture nuances, patterns, and shapes that were previously impossible to achieve on conventional watercolor and drawing papers. 

What makes it even more unique is its lifting quality. You may return to a painting when its done and redo specific areas over and over again. You can build up layers of paint like an oil painter working on a canvas, and then take them off to reveal the white of the sheet. Remember that water activates the paint, even paint put down months ago. Allow YUPO® to dry completely. Spray YUPO® with a matte-clear finishing spray to seal and protect it. Only use a sealant when your work is complete, as rework and touch-ups become difficult to do after sealing.YUPO® is a space age material made in a space age paper mill. The raw materials arrive by rail and are loaded into their respective silos and hoppers for their eventual transformation into pellets.

These pellets are then fed into the patented heating and extruding equipment. 

The base and surface layers are formed during the extruding process, and these three layers are stretched to create a dimensionally stable, biaxial-oriented substrate. The innumerable micro-voids created through this process give YUPO® its superior strength, opacity and ultra-smooth surface finish. Every phase of the manufacturing process is computer controlled and closely monitored to ensure adherence to what many acknowledge to be the most stringent quality standards in the industry.
