Mounting a photographic print to acrylic is a specialised process.

Plexigalss is the brand we use and it is a good quality acrylic with a 30 year Guarantee.There are many other brands used in acrylic face mounting.Next is the backing of your acrylic print, like everything else in the diasec process there are many different materials used.We use a high quality composite panel with comes under many brands and grades. It is made of a plastic inner and coated with two thin layers of aluminium for strength and durability.The materials used in the acrylic framing process above are only the ingredients to an even trickier process in production. Like cooking, there are many small intricate details in mounting a photographic print to acrylic perfectly.
