Why Choose Ampersand™?
No other panel on the market protects an artist’s work like an Ampersand™ panel. Every Gessobord™ panel is protected by our proprietary Archival-Seal™ barrier technology, the most advanced formula for sealing wood that prevents support induced discoloration. Only Ampersand™ uses true high-density hardboard made from US-grown and renewable Aspen wood fibers. Gessobord is archival, eco-friendly and formaldehyde-free.
