Artglass UV WW™ Anti-Reflection by GroGlass
This specially coated glass provides UV-filter protection for your treasured keepsakes and originals while providing optimal clarity of viewing with anti-reflective technology and no green tint. What kind of clarity does it provide? How about practically invisible! It blocks more than 90% of harmful indoor and outdoor UV rays to help protect the art from fading and discoloration, yellowing and bleaching over time. Don't compromise on clarity if you want to see the true colors and details of your cherished art and the framing elements you have carefully selected. Unlike competitive products, it has a very hard coating and is scratch resistant. No special cleaners are required. Handling is also much easier as it can be cut and glazed on either side, giving framers the ultimate in ease of handling and framing.
Artglass™ coating is manufactured using an advanced magnetron vacuum sputtering process to deposit a molecular film less than a micron thick. Originally developed for aerospace applications, this environmentally-friendly, highly technical process guarantees unparalleled cleanability, uniformity, durability and quality of the product. Note that the coating does not make the glass shatterproof.
Similar to Tru Vue® Museum Glass®. Museum Glass® clear provides 99% UV protection vs. 92%, however it has less clarity and the side with the UV AR coating has to be handled carefully and placed against the artwork in the frame. Both types of glass have very little light reflection.
