“the best 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)

Image side
For the finishing of the front side you can choose between high gloss acrylate or anti-scratch acrylate.
The effect of high gloss speaks for itself. The high gloss finish of the plexiglass creates an unprecedentedly clear image.
High gloss comes in the normal version, in addition there is an Anti-Scratch version and recently there has been a high gloss Non-Glare Trulife®. Plexiglas with a museum anti-reflective coating.
Antireflex is matt, non-reflective acrylic. It has an even more beautiful satin structure than a matte photo print. Naturally, this type of acrylic also ensures a razor-sharp reproduction of the image.
As standard, we work with acrylic thicknesses of 2, 3 and 4 mm.
Other thicknesses are available on request: for example 5, 8 or 10 mm, up to a maximum of 25 mm.

We recommend dibond as a backing. We use 2, 3 or 4 mm as standard for this. For a museum image of your work, we recommend 3 mm acrylic and 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.
