The Challenge

  • To protect a watercolor work on paper painting during exhibition while providing an optimal viewing experience.

The Solution

Optium Museum Acrylic®

Acrylic is half the weight of glass and shatter resistant
Safeguards against injury and damage to artwork and visitors.

Anti-static protection exceeds that of glass
Immediately eliminates static charge.  Makes for safer, easier framing and less cleaning.

Abrasion resistant
A durable hard coat protects against scratches from cleaning and general exposure to the public.

Allows viewers to see the watercolor rather than distracting reflections.

99% UV blocking
Protects the art work from the most damaging light wavelengths, helping prevent fading and degradation.
