Conservation Glazing

FEATURES OF 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.

  • Reduces reflection by over 85% (to less than 1% of total light), the 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

  • 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 producing a permanently bonded coating.

  • 2.5mm glass substrate

WHEN TO USE

  • For virtually invisible glazing that will enhance colours, brightness and contrast levels of all types of artwork, even posters.

  • For protecting valued diplomas or irreplaceable artwork against damage and fading caused by UV light.

  • Ideal for framing applications including shadow boxes, multiple mat or deep framing projects.

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
