CONSERVATION PERFECT VUE

CONSERVATION REFLECTION CONTROL ®

CONSERVATION CLEAR ®
Essential for conservation framing
Perhaps you have a very bright room in which you will display your artwork, or you intend to hang the piece opposite a window or lamp. Anytime you think reflection may become a distraction from the enjoyment of your artwork, you may want to ask for Conservation Reflection Control® Glass.
Many framers are conditioned against using reflection control glass. This is the result of the poor quality glass that has traditionally been available. These low-tech “non-glare” glasses have a highly frosted appearance because they are etched on both sides
Conservation Reflection Control ®
Glass employs etching on only one side, eliminating the reflection problem with only a subtle softening of clarity.
I have a sample of the four types of Conservation Series ® Glass over artwork and you can judge it for yourself.
