Acrylic Glazing

Acrylic glazing also often called Plexiglass, Acrylite or Lucite is clearer than glass.  Glass has a slight green tint.  Modern manufacturing can now make acrylic in the same versions offered in glass...clear, non-glare and ultra violet filtering.  It is lighter than glass and, of course, it is stronger than glass.  And, it is safer than glass.

If you are framing the standard photograph or inkjet print and other non-collectible that can be reproduced, standard clear acrylic will be fine.  If you want greater longevity, use uv filtered acrylic.  It screens 98 to 99 percent of uv light from sun, flourescent light and general light sources.

If you are framing an image that will be across from natural light or flourescent/incandescent light sources that cause a reflection, consider non-glare acrylic.  It is amazingly clear while eliminating most of the reflection.

Usually acrylic glazing can be simply dusted with a soft cloth. If cleaning is required a simple mixture of soap and water is sufficient.  Don't use Windex and other cleaners with ammonia. For extra polishing, Brillianize in our supply section is the best I have used.  It is also a great anti static.

Modern acrylic is now a standard in the picture framing industry.  Try it!

Acrylic Picture Frame Glazing

Acrylic glazing is clearer than glass

The "face" of the framed picture. Because it ships so easily, is so light and is now available at lower prices, acrylic glazing is becoming a standard in picture framing. Glazing comers in two thicknesses:  .060 (a bit thinner than glass) and .098 (about the thickness of glass used in framing). Our .060 standard, .098 premium standard, .098 non-glare and .098 museum grade uv filtering is optically clear, remains clear and is about the same thickness as glass. It is lighter than glass and ships with much less trouble.  It is a better protection for your image. We recommend Brillianize for cleaning and polishing acrylic.  See Supplies in left hand menu.
