How to check if the framing has been done with anti-reflective glass?

Anti-reflective glass has a characteristic reflection color, which occurs from light wave manipulation through AR coatings. Artglass AR 70 has a neutral green reflection color that can be noticed under an angle. It's characteristic to all anti-reflective glass, and you also see it on prescription glasses.

What is the difference between anti-reflective and non-glare glass?

Anti-reflective glass is ultra-smooth, clear glass processed with optical nano coatings that eliminate reflections. The result is smooth glass that's ultra-transparent and easy to clean. Non-glare glass is treated with a 'matte' finish that diffuses light, resulting in decreased glare. However, the etched surface is harder to clean and obscures the details in the framed work.

Is Artglass AR 70 glass safe to transport?

When transporting glass, proper safety measures should always be ensured. Artglass AR 70 is not shatter-resistant, hence physical damage is possible. However, if properly secured, glass can be transported once or twice. However, if you're planning to move your framed artwork or require physical protection against seismic activity, choose our anti-reflective Artglass Lifetime Acrylic for additional protection against shattering.

What should I do if I start noticing fading behind Artglass AR 70?

While Artglass AR 70 glass offers basic protection, some mediums and materials may still fade or be damaged because of exposure to ultraviolet light. If you notice any signs of damage, consult with your local framer and consider upgrading to Artglass AR 99 Water White or similar conservation-grade products. UV damage accumulates and is expensive to restore, therefore quality materials and professional framing are your best options to safeguard your framed artworks.
