For us conserving an artwork is as easy as 1,2,3 because we are equipped with all the essentials i.e. 99% UV protected glazing, acid free matt boards and tape, trained and experienced team of framers. We are partners with Tru Vue® who produces a variation of conservation grade glass and acrylic glazing that pass 99% UV protection. My personal favorite is Optium Museum acrylic glazing which meets rigorous standards and is durable and strong. Optium is produced using a patented Tru Vue® technology in which a magnetron-sputtered anti-reflective, anti-static coating is bonded to an abrasion resistant UV filtering acrylic sheet at an atomic level. Why is this glazing my personal favorite? Well the name Optium Museum speaks by itself and its by far the best glazing which is trusted and used in various museums and pristine Art houses around the world; just to name a few, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Yale university, Museum of London, Rijks Museum, Museu Picasso, Albright Knox Art Gallery all use Optium Museum glazing .
Optium Museum is the only glazing that has a combination of multiple elements hence can be used with any medium of art and it ensures long-lasting protection that doesn’t oxidize and degrade over time. Optium Museum glazing can be used for the most delicate medium, mainly Pastels, Charcoal and chalk which are very sensitive to static reaction and needs to be handled with extreme care as well as other mediums like Oil, Acrylic, Gouache, water color and ink all which are lesser in static reaction but are prone to effects of UV rays produced by the sun and indoor lightings that oxidizes and degrades the paintings over time. No matter what the medium, Optium Museum glazing is the answer and the right choice for all your framing requirements.
