Diasec is an established and patented process to face-mount photographs onto an acrylic sheet invented by Heinz Sovilla-Brulhart in 1969. A traditional photographic print (matt digital C type print) is bonded directly to clear cast perspex, the properties of which allow for a clearer and sharper image compared to normal glass. The Diasec bonding liquid contains a UV filter and is resistant to fungicidal, bacterial agents and airborne pollutants increasing the longevity of the print. The photograph is then backed with an aluminium sheet to reinforce the panel and allow for a custom made aluminium subframe to be attached which can then be hung directly on the wall. It will appear to float off the wall as the support is hidden from the edges.
Diasecs come with a signed certificate of authenticity.
