Non-Glare Acrylic (P99)

Clear non-glare acrylic is specifically formulated and finished to minimize glare and reflection created by light sources, both natural and artificial. These unique properties makes the non-glare acrylic an excellent choice for framing art, posters, photographs, and prints. The matte finish diffuses the light and distorts the angle of reflection, offering unobstructed views from almost any angle, maximizing the viewing of the image. Another advantage of using a non-glare acrylic sheet for picture frames and similar applications is that it also resists fingerprints.

UV Filtering Acrylic (OP3)

Optical clear UV filtering acrylic is specifically formulated to reduce damaging ultraviolet light waves. Unprotected artwork and print media such as paper and fabric will fade, turn yellow, or become brittle, when exposed to sunlight and artificial light for long time. The OP-3 UV filtering acrylic sheets are light weight, impact and abrasion resistant, and will protect your artwork from 98% of harmful UV rays. They are specifically designed to meet the unique requirements for picture framing used in modern galleries, museums, and art studios.

Mar Resistant Acrylic (MR1)

Mar/scratch resistant acrylic offers excellent optical clarity with abrasion and chemical resistant properties. This acrylic has an abrasion resistant hard coat that protects the acrylic surface and extending the life of the acrylic frame. If your acrylic frames will be exposed to everyday public contact, daily cleanings, and airborne dirt and dust, then an abrasion or scratch resistant product like ACRYLITE® Gallery mar resistant acrylic is recommended.
