No Visible Ripples or “Orange Peel”

By Jen Gramm, Tru Vue Director of Marketing

Museum Glass® and Conservation Clear® will feature a smoother surface, free of distortion,  with no ripples, as a result of changes made to the conservation-grade coating process Tru Vue uses for both products.


As part of its ongoing commitment continuous improvement, we have made it a priority to eliminate visible ripples, also known as “orange peel.” Although subtle, ripples could be seen when the glass was viewed at  certain angles.


The quality of the UV-protective coating still adheres to the company’s rigorous performance criteria, including 99% protection, the highest in the industry. Custom framers will experience the same features and benefits of both glazing, as we have maintained all other product specifications, including care and handling.


Our customers expect the best, which is one of the reasons people come to them to have their personal treasures custom framed, because of this we are always working hard to bring them the best glazing in the industry, as we have been doing for the past 45 years.


This smoother surface improvements to these glazing products comes just a year after we introduced enhancements to its anti-reflective products, including Museum Glass®, UltraVue® and AR Reflection-Free®, making them easier to clean and more durable.
