Artglass UV 99™

Artglass UV 99 provides the maximum UV protection by blocking out 99% of harmful rays, thus helping prevent the treasured keepsake from fading. UV damage is cumulative and irreversible to framed artwork. The sunlight rays react with the surface of an artwork or photograph, and change its chemical composition as it breaks down the bonds in the paper, dyes and pigments. The result is brittle paper and faded colors. Choose conservation glass on your next framing project – and make sure your art is protected for generations!
