Which side of ACRYLITE® UV filtering mar-resistant (AR OP3) sheet should face the artwork?

When installing ACRYLITE® UV filtering mar-resistant (AR OP3) acrylic sheet ensure that the coated side faces "out" away from the artwork. This allows the coating to protect the acrylic from handling and cleaning. The UV protection afforded by the OP3 designation is uniform throughout the sheet, this means it will protect the artwork regardless of which side faces out.

It is easy to determine which side is coated by simply looking at the masking. The coated side of the sheet is on the same side as the printed side of the masking.
