Item details

A superior quality lightweight alternative to picture framing glass for protecting your handmade artworks and creations. Will fit into any frame. Great for replacing broken glass in an existing frame or to create a museum quality display for your new art pieces.

Plexiglass looks just like regular glass, except it is a sheet acrylic plastic, being half the weight of glass, with vibrant clarity. The Acrylite Plexiglass that we offer is 1/8" thick and the highest quality Plexiglass available.

It is unshatterable and will not leave shards of glass inside your frame and all over the floor if it falls. Many galleries and museum exhibits require Plexiglass for all framed work, as it is much easier to ship and transport. Because of it's light weight quality, it is the preferred choice for all larger artworks. Each piece is covered by a protective paper film. Simply peel off one side of the flim, place it over your artwork or matting, then peel off the other side and your creation is ready for display.

This has an invisible coating that blocks up to 98% of the ultraviolet rays present in both natural and artificial light. These UV rays are one of the prime causes of artwork fading and yellowing over time, so using this glazing will add a high degree of protection for photographs, paintings, original documents and shadowbox collages.

Package of five pieces for the 5x7 and 8x10 sizes, 3 pieces for the 11x14 size and 2 pieces of 16x20 and 18x24, respectively. Made in the USA by Cyro Acrylite, the world leader in picture framing Plexiglass.

We offer custom cutting for any size of UV-Filtering Plexiglass. Just send the owner a message indicating your requested size and we will make a custom Etsy item for you. Unlike glass, Plexiglass is easily shipped in larger sizes, so we can send exhibition sizes for gallery frames too.
