Artglass Lifetime Acrylic


Artglass Lifetime Acrylic is made from the purest acrylic substrate and treated with anti-reflective coatings that minimize visible light reflection and ensure maximum clarity.

It meets all of the requirements for professional art conservation and blocks more than 99% of UV light. It is also shatter-resistant, providing additional physical protection.






Artglass Lifetime Acrylic is the best choice of protection for any valuable and important artwork or display. It is the recommended choice of glazing for seismic zones, public areas, and any other environment that poses a risk of glass breakage. The lightweight acrylic material also makes it easier to transport framed artworks. Artglass Lifetime Acrylic is the ultimate all-around choice for transparency, UV block, and physical protection.


The hard coating of the acrylic substrate protects the glazing from minor scratches and ensures exceptional durability.

Artglass Lifetime Acrylic has masking film on both sides to make the handling and storage of the glazing as convenient as possible.
