Optium Museum Acrylic®

The Challenge

  • To protect pastels during exhibition while simultaneously providing an optimal viewing experience.

The Solution

Optium Museum Acrylic®

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

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

Allows viewers to see the images and fine details without distracting reflections.

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

Acrylic is half the weight of glass; Ideal for large, heavy projects.

Shatter resistant
Safeguards against injury and damage to art work and visitors.  This product is ideal for valuable works, high traffic areas, and public event spaces.

The Work

Rubén Belloso, well-known for his realistic portraits in pastels, had a solo exhibition at the Muse Antoine Lecuyer in Saint Quentin, France. The exhibition featured 12 to 14 works displayed with Tru Vue® Optium Museum Acrylic®.
