FRAMING GRADE ACRYLIC

Acrylite framing grade acrylics offer several advantages over glass for art conservation.

​Acrylite sheet provides what glass can’t deliver:

  • Superior optical clarity to better view artwork
  • 10 to 20 times more resistant to impact
  • Half the weight of glass​
  • Easier to handle and install
  • Safer and more economical to ship


Acrylite FF3: the premier framing grade acrylic for picture framing applications. It is exceptional general purpose glazing for valuable artwork, photographs, prints and cherished memorabilia.  Acrylite FF3 has much higher quality control from defects than regular acrylic.

Acrylite OP2 & OP3: UV-filtering acrylic sheet provides the highest protection from damaging ultraviolet light, protecting paper-media artwork, paintings, prints and documents from fading, yellowing and deteriorating. These conservation grades are available in cell cast and extruded sheets.

Acrylite P99: non-glare sheet is designed to minimize glare and reflection. This maximizes the unhindered viewing of framed artwork and prints. The matte finish shows off the art from almost any angle under typical lighting conditions.

Acrylite Optical: mar resistant sheet has an abrasion and chemical resistant coating on one or both surfaces. This added protection reduces the risk of scratching or damage when handling. Abrasion resistance and UV-filtering properties can be combined for maximum conservation protection.
