“the way to present photo art”

What is Diasec?

Diasec® is the original since 1969!

Diasec® is the process of gluing of photos with the image side behind plexiglass. To rear side a sheet of dibond is mounted behind the Diasec® panel and finally the entire panel is finished off with a suspension aluminium frame or fixed in a (handmade) frame.

Many users choose Diasec® for its sleek design, which they find fitting for their work. Diasec® also functions as protection of the image material against air pollution, premature aging and to a high degree against UV radiation.

No fairy tale: the original!

1969 is the year of the invention of photo gluing with Plexiglas.

The Swiss chemist Heinz Sovilla invented this special method of preservation. He developed a method of protecting photographic materials with plexiglass. He called it Diasec® and registered the trademark worldwide. The process has been issued under license to about 15 companies worldwide who have jointly developed it into the highest quality bonding system to acrylic.

Properties of Diasec®
Diasec® has only positive properties:

  • high-contrast thanks to high-gloss acrylic and brilliant colour reproduction
  • perfect reproduction without bubbles and dust
  • colour depth
  • clearer reproduction due to less refraction of light (no air layer between the glass and the photograph)
  • safe for your images (no heating required)
  • sharp, detailed reproduction and high saturation
  • durable under optimal conditions
  • built-in UV filter
  • various versions, such as high gloss, TruLife, anti-reflex and anti-static museum glass (anti-scratch)

The different materials

Er zijn verschillende materialen mogelijk voor Diasec®. Wilt u hoogglans of een ontspiegelde antireflex finish aan de voorzijde? U kunt kiezen uit:

  • hoogglans in 2, 3, 4 en 5 mm (andere diktes op aanvraag)
  • anti-reflex 2mm
  • anti-scratch in 3 mm (hoogglans, krasvrij en anti-statisch)
  • TruLife in 3 mm (hoogglans en niet reflecterend gelijk museumglas)

De maximale formaten van de verschillende materialen zijn: (bedenk dat de printbreedte max 160 cm is)

  • hoogglans 200 x 600 cm (max. formaten is dikte gerelateerd)
  • anti-reflex: 200 x 300 cm
  • anti-scratch: 200 x 300 cm
  • TruLife 3,0 mm dikte tot 152 x 305 cm

Voor de finishing aan de voorzijde kunt u kiezen voor hoogglans acrylaat of antireflex acrylaat.
Het effect van hoogglans spreekt uiteraard voor zich. Er ontstaat een ongekend helder beeld door de hoogglans finish van het plexiglas.
Hoogglans is er in de normale versie, daarnaast is er een Anti-Scratch versie en sinds korte tijd is er hooglans Non-Glare Trulife®. Plexiglas met een museum ontspiegelde coating.
Antireflex is mat ontspiegeld acrylaat. Het heeft een nog mooiere satijn structuur dan een matte fotoprint. Uiteraard zorgt ook dit type acrylaat voor een haarscherpe weergave van het beeld.
Standaard werken wij met acrylaat diktes van 2, 3 en 4 mm.
Op aanvraag zijn andere diktes verkrijgbaar: bijvoorbeeld 5, 8 of 10 mm, tot een maximum van 25 mm.

Als rugzijde adviseren we dibond. Standaard gebruiken we hiervoor 2, 3 of 4 mm. Voor een museale uitstraling van uw werk adviseren wij 3 mm acrylaat en 4 mm dibond.

Hanging your work
To hang the work, we mount an aluminium U-profile around the back.
You can also hang your Diasec® panel on the wall in one of our frames.
