Artglass Lifetime Acrylic™

PREMIUM QUALITY ANTI-REFLECTIVE ACRYLIC FOR PICTURE FRAMING

Our advanced Artglass Lifetime Acrylic addresses the main limitations of plastic substrates, and brings it to museum-grade standards. This scratch-resistant and anti-static glazing combines the best benefits of glass and acrylic and provides maximum UV protection for your art. 

Shatter resistant

Artglass Lifetime Acrylic is not only lighter, but also shatter-resistant, making shipping of your art even more convenient and safe.

Abrasion-resistant

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

Easy to clean

Artglass Lifetime Acrylic can be cleaned just like regular picture framing glass – using a soſt microfiber cloth and an ammonia-free glass cleaner. The high-quality optical coating ensures durability for years to come.

Supreme optical performance

The premium plexiglass substrate offers excellent clarity and color precision. Our anti-reflective coating elevates the optical performance, and reduces light reflections to ~1%. Allow viewers to appreciate art without the distractions!

99% UV blocking

Artglass Lifetime Acrylic guarantees maximum protection against ultraviolet rays, safeguarding the colors and mediums from gradual deterioration associated with light.

Lightweight and easy to use

Acrylic is half the weight of glass, making Artglass Lifetime Acrylic the best solution for large scale artworks, and easier handling and shipping of the finished frames.

Anti-static

Artglass Lifetime Acrylic coatings are anti-static, making sure that the glazing won’t attract dust or other particles.
