GLAZING AND UV REQUIREMENTS IN PRESERVATION FRAMING FOR TROPICAL ENVIRONMENTS.
At Port Douglas picture framers, we like to think about the long term survival of artwork in the tropics. The Far North Queensland tropical environment can destroy valuable or sentimental artworks in a matter of years. Glass is a poor thermal insulator. When artworks are exposed to rapid or significant changes in temperatures and humidity, condensation may form on the glass. Moisture will deteriorate paper and canvas. If moisture or the humidity remains 70% or higher mould will likely appear on paper, or reddish-brown spots called foxing. We have a number of solutions for Preservation Framing Port Douglas!
ACRYLIC GLAZING IS AN EXCELLENT THERMAL INSULATOR IN PRESERVATION FRAMING PORT DOUGLAS.
.Port Douglas Picture Framing has come up with ways to preserve artworks from moisture, mould and harsh sunlight. One of the better options in glazings is acrylic. Acrylic is an excellent thermal insulator. Acrylic glazing, instead of glass is beneficial for several other reasons. It’s much lighter than glass for more significantly sized artworks. Acrylic is also hard to break or damage, much more manageable for shipping. Acrylic applied directly to artwork never moulds.
NOT MUCH IN THE TROPICS IS BUG RESISTANT
Insects like termites, Woodworm and cockroaches are a threat to paper. We have solutions for bug resistance framing with our speciality acrylic glazing.
