ACRYLITE® Gallery UV filtering mar resistant (OP3 MR) acrylic combines the UV filtering characteristics found in ACRYLITE® Gallery UV filtering (OP3) acrylic sheet with an abrasion and chemical resistant coating.
This sheet provides exceptional protection with the highest level of UV filtering available in the industry. When paper and other artistic mediums are exposed to harmful UV light, halogen, or fluorescent lights, it can cause fabrics and paper to become brittle, fade in color, or turn yellow over the years. This damage is permanent and irreversible. With this material, your art will stay protected.
This UV protection is combined with the added benefit of abrasion and chemical resistance which protects the acrylic from scratching due to some chemical cleaners.
This sheet offers excellent solutions for the following applications:
- Protecting museum artifacts
- Protection in high traffic areas
It is lightweight, easy to fabricate, and ten times more impact resistant than glass, making it an ideal choice for framing articles of value. Easily cleaned with common household cleaners, the mar resistant coating resists scratching and dulling effects from typical alcohol and ammonia products. Read this materials warranty here.
When a slightly reduced level of UV protection is needed, ACRYLITE® Gallery UV Filtering UV3 might be the best solution for you. Both OP3 and UV3 feature this UV protection in their formulation. If you are looking for the same UV protection with an added non-glare feature, ACRYLITE® UV filtering non-glare (OP3 P99) is best.
