I’ve just discovered about Diasec through a friend of mine, as he’s doing an exhibition in our home town.
What is Diasec?
Diasec is a patented process used for facemounting prints like photographs on acrylic glass. The process was invented by Heinz Sovilla-Brulhart in 1969.
Because of the different light penetration and refraction of acrylic glass compared to normal glass, the colours are more brilliant and the image sharper than compared to standard glass in a picture frame. A Diasec mount is usually of a high gloss finish. Because the print is glued to the acrylic glass, the result is a completely flat mount of the image.
It’s more expensive than a general screen printing, but the final result is gorgeous!
Where to find it?
