Bugačica is made of soft and porous acid-free paper that meets the requirements for long-term storage according to DIN6738 and ISO 9706 standards. Absorbent paper, bugačica is produced in one of the leading European and world paper factories Hahnemühle.
Due to the fact that it absorbs moisture extremely well, bugačica is most often used to remove moisture during paper restoration (for example, drying after washing paper, replenishing with Japanese paper or after the process of adding paper pulp - "leaf casting"). During such procedures, we also recommend the use of materials such as Reemay, Hollytex or Bondina between the bugačica and the artwork to prevent them from sticking together during drying. Due to its softness, bugačica is also used for coating fragile objects. It is also often used as a lining in upholstery for drawers, shelves and display cases and as a separator for items that are sensitive to materials with an alkaline ph value. Although suitable for storing herbarium collections, the use of a bug as a permanent separator or substrate is not recommended.
Due to the current situation related to the virus SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19), the supply of archival material may be extended to 30 days.
