Special Talk: Technical Developments in Glazing for Friable and Fragile Collections
Tru Vue is the leader and innovator of high-performance glass and acrylic that enhances and protects collections around the world. Optium® Acrylic Glazing is a modern alternative to conventional glazing materials used for framing and display applications. It combines the best qualities of low reflection safety glass and UV-filtering acrylic – low-reflection, anti-static, UV protection, light weight, and abrasion resistance - in one product. The result is virtually invisible glazing that provides an optimal viewing experience and long-lasting protection. That’s why museums around the world trust their most valuable and historic collections to Optium® Acrylic Glazing.
