ACRYLITE® Gallery UltraClear

Ultra-clear, fingerprint resistant conservation acrylic sheet with low reflection

Product

ACRYLITE® Gallery UltraClear (UC) is a revolutionary acrylic sheet for the Framing and Museum markets that is fingerprint resistant. This glazing material is both easy to clean and easy to keep clean.

ACRYLITE® Gallery UltraClear is a 99% UV-blocking conservation acrylic glazing with very low reflected color. Framed material remains virtually unaffected by the glazing and true to the original artwork appearance over time with protection from harmful UV.

ACRYLITE® Gallery UltraClear maintains the clarity and brilliance of your artwork and photographs with high light transmission (typical value 98%) while reducing unwanted glare and reflection. ACRYLITE® UltraClear improves visibility when viewing your photographs and artwork compared to standard acrylic.

For added protection of your investment, ACRYLITE® Gallery UltraClear is also abrasion-resistant to prevent marring and scratching of the surface, and the new fingerprint resistant coating makes it easy to clean.

ACRYLITE® Gallery UltraClear is ideally used for picture framing applications. At half the weight of glass, it is well suited for all glazing sizes while reducing breakage and shipping costs.

The high optical quality, light weight, and impact strength characteristics make it the preferred material for picture framing, as well as for other applications such as protective screens, multimedia displays, retail displays, instrument clusters and more.
