Diasec can be used in combination with Trulife and is the museum glass variant of Plexiglas. Like museum glass, it is clearer and allows hardly any glare. In addition, it has a very high UV filter of 99%, is less static and less sensitive to scratches.
Diasec®: protect photos against scratches, UV and dirt
Diasec is the world’s most established and quality-proven liquid gluing process of print and Plexiglas (acrylate) and was the first system to make the direct and permanent gluing of photos onto glass and acrylic plates possible. It is the pre-eminent high-end finish for presenting art works behind Plexiglas. It is with good reason that museums, top photographers, and artists have for many years now decided on this finish: a very high-grade and reliable Plexiglas (acrylate) product.
In comparison with other Plexiglas products, Diasec has a higher, color rendition and more color depth, which is beneficial for the quality of your print. It has a protective UV filter and is durable. In addition, it makes use of high-quality Plexiglas and archival pigment prints and is glued onto dibond. Diasec® is a worldwide trademark registered by Diasec-Sovilla S.A. in Switzerland, which developed the technique in 1969.

Guarantee of Re-Art
With Re-Art we strive for durability and a very long lifespan, also by preventing the discoloration of artworks.

The properties of Diasec
Our standardized Plexiglas is available in high-gloss or matte in 2, 3 or 4 millimeters. However, we can also create thicker ones on demand. We use Dibond as the medium, which is a panel consisting of two aluminum layers with PVC in between.
Diasec has meanwhile proven itself for more than 50 years and has therefore become the standard for museums and photography museums. It lasts much longer than other Plexiglas products. There are many parties on the market offering cheap Plexiglas products, so you need to guard against being misled. The reason for offering it at a cheap price is to do with the quality of those products.
In many cases, printing is done directly on a lower quality Plexiglas with cheap inks that will not last long. Also, Plexiglas is processed with chemical photo prints in combination with an adhesive film. Manufacturers of these adhesive films give a guarantee on their durability for seven years only. When Plexiglas products of this type are exposed to UV for longer periods, they get undone or are discoloured. That is why Re-Art has chosen Diasec for more than 15 years now and can give you a long guarantee on the Diasec product.
After having checked and optimised your file for the process, we print with archival inks on special paper earmarked for Diasec. It stands to reason that we do so with an Epson printer which is specially attuned to this process. Epson still delivers the highest possible print resolution. The print is glued with special liquid glue onto the Plexiglas. Then the print on Plexiglas is glued onto a Dibond plate after which it is sawn to size. Subsequently a professional suspension frame is mounted.
