Making Of White Foam Board

As with many other types of paper, the surface of the standard board is somewhat acidic. However, it may be manufactured in a neutral, acid-free form with tamped surface paper in a large range of widths and thicknesses for modern archival photo frames and artwork.

Foam-cored materials with solid (non-foamed) polystyrene coating and other stiff plastic sheets, some of which are finished with textures, are now also available.  

Some glues, including superglue, and some kind of paint, don't fit well with Foam Core. The foam tends to melt and disintegrate. In casual conditions, however, some glue works fine, while the water in the glue can spread out fibers. Good spray adhesives can achieve good results.

Some boards come with adhesive, too, so they can be self-mounted.
