Conservation Glazing

FEATURES OF 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

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

HANDLING

  • Glass should be handled with care. Cotton gloves should be worn to minimize injury
  • Avoid dragging the lites of glass against one another when removing from the box
  • Do not slide the lite of glass into place. Lift it up to adjust position

CUTTING

  • Place a non-slip surface (such as suede matboard) between the glass and the back of the wall cutter to avoid scratching
  • For Tru Vue Conservation Grade glass products, place the lite of glass in the wall unit with the UV coated side towards the wall, facing the slip sheet. Do not score the UV coated side. The inkjet printing stating "this side faces artwork" indicates the UV coated side. For all other Tru Vue glass products, either side can be scored
  • Keep the glass cutter clean of glass chips by brushing away fragments frequently with a horse hair brush

CLEANING

Tru Vue glass products are clean and ready to use. If spot cleaning is needed, use the following techniques:

  • Place the glass on a clean, non-abrasive surface for cleaning
  • Use a clean, soft, lint-free cloth to clean the glass. Tru Vue recommends using a micro-fibre cloth
  • Spray a small amount of ammonia-free cleaner onto the cloth. Spraying on the cloth will prevent streaking and overspray
  • Press the cloth against the glass and clean in round, circular motions to reduce streaking or leaving spots
