It offers up to 20 times the protection against minor scratches compared to traditional acrylic and stands up to frequent handling and cleaning.
What is Face Mounting
Face mounting jolts our expectation.
As a viewing public, we have grown accustomed to photographs presented in a certain way. Acrylic face mounting presents a completely different look for photographs—contemporary, sleek, direct.
Face mounting is a process where you apply a clear adhesive to the face of a print and adhere the print to acrylic. Once the print is adhered, a second material sandwiches the print.
As photographer Thomas D. Mangelson states, face mounting to acrylic “allows my artistic vision for the scene to be interpreted clearly.”
Face mounting to acrylic allows excellent light transmission, which makes whites whiter, blacks blacker, and all the colors in between pop.
Face mounting eliminates the space between a photograph and the glass, which immediately eliminates multiple light-reflecting surfaces. This single surface results in a crystal-clear image.
Acrylic transmits up to 92 percent of visible light. TruLife™ Acrylic has been formulated to transmit 98 percent of light. Light transmission is part of the reason that colors of a face-mounted photograph seem to be lit by a hidden light source. Increasing light transmission by a mere 6 percent may not seem substantial, but each percentage point closer to 100 percent transmission has an almost exponential effect on the colors and texture of the final piece.
TruLife™ Acrylic is a revolutionary acrylic, developed specifically for face/second surface mounting and direct printing. It delivers the highest-resolution viewing experience, to truly reflect an artist’s vision, and nothing else. TruLife provides vibrant colors as vivid as real life and captures the details in incredible depth and clarity to show photographs as they were meant to be viewed.
How scratch resistant is TruLife™ Acrylic?
Tough and durable TruLife™ Acrylic has a high performance, transparent coating which makes it 20 times more resistant against minor scratches compared to uncoated or regular acrylic.
How can TruLife™ Acrylic enhance the colors of my photo?
With TruLife ™, colors are as vivid as real life. TruLife™ Acrylic will not change the colors in your photograph, but it will give you the best accuracy of the colors in your photo – as seen through the lens of your camera. TruLife provides life-like colors, along with depth and clarity to every photograph.
TruLife™ anti-static properties actually exceed that of glass and is engineered to dissipate static charges. Independent tests show that our coated high-performance glazing products are up to 2000 times more anti-static than regular acrylic. TruLife™ does not attract dust, which minimizes cleaning. So you can spend less time dusting and more time doing what you love—taking amazing photos.
Without at least 97 percent UV protection, photos will age and fade more rapidly. Indoor and outdoor UV light rays contribute to color loss. These effects are both cumulative and irreversible. Once damage from light has occurred, it can never be reversed. That is why it is important to understand what you can do to minimize this type of damage before it happens.
The thin film, transparent coatings on TruLife™ Acrylic disrupt the energy contained in light waves causing them to flow out of sync. This disrupted wave pattern virtually eliminates all reflection from the acrylic surface.
