FINISH: DIASEC mounting –
Diasec is a method of preservation of photographic images. The mounting process uses no glue instead it utilises a special liquid chemical to create adhesion between the three components in the composite. The face of the image adheres chemically to the back of a transparent Plexiglas and the image back to a rigid aluminum sheet. The process ensures the absence of dust particles or air bubbles with no traces of glue. The front face of the plexiglas filters ultraviolet light and avoids discoloration of the image. The final artwork is a guaranteed Museum quality finish with image longevity of over 70 years.
