Artglass 99™


Artglass 99™ provides UV protection by blocking out 99% of harmful rays thus helping prevent the treasured keepsakes from fading as well as preventing the yellowing of photographs, or paper becoming brittle.

Choose conservation glass on your next framing project – which offers 99% UV protection.

Artglass 99™ is your great choice for picture framing!
UV damage is cumulative and irreversible to framed artwork. The sunlight rays will 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.

What is better – Artglass™ with absorptive or reflective UV coating?

Let’s review your choices:
1. Absorptive coating will block more than 99% of UV light, however it will also absorb some of the visible light and thus reduce its transmission by a small amount.

Glass with absorptive coating is also less scratch resistant and requires special handling, compared to glass with reflective UV coating.

Choose this type of glass when UV protection outweighs the need for absolute clarity.
2. Glass with reflective UV coating can block out 92% of UV rays with no adverse effect on the transmission of visible light.

Choose this type of glass when you are looking for a flawless clarity and optimal UV protection.
