Overview[ edit ] Paper made from wood-based pulp that has not had its lignin removed turns yellow, becomes brittle, and deteriorates over time. During production, acid-free paper may be treated with a mild base usually calcium or magnesium bicarbonate to neutralize the natural acids occurring in wood pulpand it may also be buffered to prevent the formation of additional acids as may develop from the application of sizing.
The bicarbonate is added in excess, to supply the paper with an alkaline reserve to provide protection from further attack by acids remaining in the paper or supplied by the environment e.
PCC reacts with acids, and therefore requires the pulp to be chemically neutral or alkaline. Alkaline paper has a life expectancy of over 1, years for the best paper and years for average grades.
Because there are fewer corrosive chemicals used in making alkaline paper, the process is much easier on the machinery, reducing downtime and maintenance, and extending the machinery's useful life.
The process is also significantly more environmentally friendly. Waste water and byproducts of the papermaking process can be recycled; energy can be saved in the drying and refining process; and alkaline paper can be more easily recycled.

This voluntary standard covered pH value, tear resistance, alkaline reserve, and lignin thresholds for paper to last thousands of years and was developed to encourage the use of acid-free paper in library materials. There are various standards for "acid-free" paper, with differing requirements.
In some quarters, slightly-acidic paper having a pH between 6 and 7 is often also considered "acid-free". The scope of the standard is to cover publications and documents bought and maintained by libraries and archives.
Such works include scholarly journals, periodicals, monographs, government documents, original documents, and significant works in fiction and non-fiction. An equivalent international standard, ISOwas published in Archival paper is meant to be used for publications of high legal, historical, or significant value.
Thus, "archival paper" is sometimes broken down into two categories: Conservation-grade — acid-free, buffered paper made from wood-based pulp.

It can be made from any cellulose fiber as long as the active acid pulp is eliminated during processing.
