At Imagebank Australia, given these points, like to think about the long term survival of artwork in tropical conditions to Australian harsh UV light. Tropical and damp environments or high UV Australian light can destroy valuable artworks in a matter of years. Moisture tends to cause movement and deterioration of paper and canvas. Imagebank Australia has come up with ways to slow down this process. One of the better options is glazing with Perspex picture framing. Perspex or acrylic glazing, instead of glass is beneficial for several reasons besides environmental preservation. It’s much lighter than glass for larger artworks. Perspex picture framing is also hard to break or damage, making it much more manageable for shipping. Alternatively, Perspex can also be used instead of glass with matboards or spacers.
PERSPEX OR ACRYLIC APPLIED DIRECTLY TO FINE ART PRINTS WILL NEVER MOULD AND CREATES AN AIRTIGHT ENVIRONMENT TO PROTECT ARTWORKS.
