Our available range features:

conservation-clear-glass

Conservation Clear® is the standard conservation grade glass product. Most frame shops use this product as their default glass option. Conservation Clear glass provides 99% UV protection to protect against fading. Tru Vue uses a proprietary coating process where an inorganic silica-based UV inhibiting coating is permanently cured onto the surface of a glass substrate to produce this ultra protective glass option.

  • Blocks up to 99% of UV light rays
  • Meets ISO 18902 and passes ISO 18916, by providing at least 97% UV protection
  • Does not degrade or delaminate over time. Tru Vue uses a proprietary inorganic, silica-based UV blocking coating, which is “baked” into the glass substrate producing a permanently bonded coating.
  • 2.5mm glass substrate

When to use Conservation Clear glass:

For protecting artwork against damage and fading caused by UV light
Ideal for any framing application, if reflection-free viewing is not
important.

museum-glass

No other glass product compares to Museum Glass®. This industry leading glass product provides 99% UV protection to protect against fading, and is optically coated for a virtually invisible finish, to create amazing clarity. Tru Vue uses a proprietary multi-step coating process.

First, an inorganic silica-based UV inhibiting coating is permanently cured onto the surface of the glass substrate. Then, using Magnetron Sputtering technology, layers of highly energized metal oxides are precisely deposited onto the glass substrate. The result is the most attractive and most protective display option for all works of art.

    lowest possible reflection rating available with UV protection
  • Achieves over 97% light transmission to enhance colors, brightness
    and contrast levels
  • Blocks up to 99% of UV light rays
