PRESERVATION FRAMING FOR TROPICAL ENVIRONMENTS.
At Port Douglas picture framers, we like to think about the long term survival of artworks in the tropics.
The North Queensland tropical environment can destroy valuable, as well as, sentimental artworks in a matter of years.
Glass alone is a poor insulator. When artworks are exposed to rapid, significant changes in temperatures, likewise, humidity, moisture may form on the glass.
Moisture will, without a doubt, destroy paper and canvas.
If moisture or the humidity remains 70% or higher mould will appear on paper, or reddish-brown spots called foxing.
Even so, we have a number of solutions for preservation framing Port Douglas!
ACRYLIC GLAZING IS AN EXCELLENT THERMAL INSULATOR, IN PARTICULAR, FOR PRESERVATION FRAMING PORT DOUGLAS.
Port Douglas Picture Framing has come up with ways to preserve artworks.
The main problem is from moisture, additionally, mould and harsh sunlight.
With this in mind, one of the better options in glazing is in fact acrylic mounting.
Acrylic is a great insulator. Acrylic glazing, instead of glass is beneficial for several other reasons.
It’s much lighter than glass for larger sized artworks.
Acrylic is also hard to break or damage, much more manageable for shipping.
Acrylic applied directly to artwork never moulds. The acrylic is sealed directly to the artwork with a sealed backing board.
NOT MUCH IN THE TROPICS IS BUG RESISTANT
Insects like termites, Woodworm and cockroaches are a threat to paper.
We have solutions for bug resistance framing with our speciality acrylic glazing and composite Backing.
The mounting process is the best process in tropical Conditions.
The bonus is that you can create artwork acrylic prints for wet areas like bathroom and kitchen
