This special Non-reflective, photographic acrylic is ideal for use in galleries, exhibitions, shops and the home where the strong lighting can often cause irritating glare which detracts from the viewing experience.
Anti-reflective coatings offer improved optical performance by reducing reflection and glare. An anti-reflective ITO coating can be applied to plastic substrates to provide optimal optical properties.
DIAMOND AR, the anti-reflective coating we supply and manufacture, is available on polycarbonate and acrylic substrates, as well as glass.
Standard anti-reflective acrylic sheets (also known as Perspex) are a highly transparent material with non-glare surface on one side which also absorbs destructive UV light.
- Ideal for galleries and exhibitions
- Protects the image from yellowing and fading caused by UV light (e.g. sun bleaching)
- Approximately half the weight of traditional glass
- Anti Glare coating reduces unwanted glare and reflections
- 11 times more resistant against impacts compared to standard float glass
- Easy to work with when customising sizes
- Supplied with protective film on both sides
This special Non-reflective, photographic acrylic is ideal for use in galleries, exhibitions, shops and the home where the strong lighting can often cause irritating glare which detracts from the viewing experience. It is ideal for framing where the image is in direct contact or is touching the anti-reflective acrylic. If the image is not directly touching and completely in contact with the acrylic across the entire surface, it will appear very frosted and distorted – even if the gap is only a few millimetres.
Plexiglas Gallery Anti-Reflective Acrylic sheets have set a new standard for artwork protection that reflects up to 99.7% of UV light. Plexiglas XT Gallery anti-reflective/anti-glare acrylic offers much more protection compared with conventional picture glass (float glass). This material has a finished surface that restricts the reflective qualities often found with gloss acrylics.
In addition, anti-reflective options are also suitable for plastic films. AR1617 Film is an anti-reflective coated PET film, ideal for digital displays and signage.
The AR coating is conductive with a sheet resistance of typically 1000+ ohms/sq. The following anti reflective coating options are available from Diamond Coatings:
