ABOUT DIASEC®

The globally registered trademark Diasec® stands for a special process in creating a durable bond between a print or transparency and high-quality acrylic glass – without smears or blisters – a process known as ‘face mounting’. This unique seal gives you an exclusive high-end product that also provides protection against UV light, weather conditions and chemical impurities in the air.

Photographs and digital images up to 2 metres x 3 metres can be mounted to high exhibition standards without borders, eliminating the need for a traditional picture frame. Diasec® is the preferred mounting method for many of the world’s top fine art photographers and galleries. This unique and very contemporary process is now available for Gallery 360 clients.

The patented Diasec® process was developed in Switzerland in the late 1960’s. Only authorised licence holders are able to provide this unique service and Gallery 360 hold the exclusive Australian rights.

The select ingredients for Diasec® are unique. Combined with the light penetration and refraction of clear acrylic, they produce higher image definition, brilliant colour and a fine detailed texture that is made more evident to the viewer. This superior clarity cannot be achieved with ordinary glazing methods.

Diasec® panels are backed with Aluminium, reinforcing the rigidity of the finished picture and provide a beautiful profile when viewed from the side. The back plate also enables the attachment of our custom made Aluminium Sub-frames that allow the artwork to hang on the wall, from where it will appear to “float” with no obvious means of support.

KEEPING YOUR IMAGE SAFE

Diasec® is neutral curing and has an in-built ultra violet filter. It contains no plasticisers and is resistant to fungicidal, bacterial agents and airborne pollutants. After curing, the whole airtight panel remains chemically inert and stable. Therefore the image will remain in pristine viewing condition. The finished product remains flexible too, enabling it to withstand changes in temperature and humidity, which commonly affect works on paper.

Samples that were produced in the 1970’s are still maintaining well. There is no colour shift, the whites are still pure and there is no evidence of acid erosion visible.

PHOTOGRAPHIC IMAGES

Diasec® was developed for photographic images and photographic paper is ideal for the process. Fujiflex, metallic photos, photo rag, cibachrome and all other photo papers are suited.

DIGITAL IMAGES

Digital images are suited to Diasec®. There is no need to use a gloss paper as the Diasec process produces a fabulous gloss appearance even with matt papers.

INKJET IMAGES

Diasec creates brilliant results with inkjet images. Some inkjet images require pre treating prior to Diasec® mounting. We do NOT use any heat during this process, as this can affect the image colours.

LIGHTBOXES

Diasec is a fantastic process for creating light box images. Duratrans images are mounted and ready for placement in a lightbox for a stunning image.

Gallery 360 will ship finished Diasec® pieces throughout Australia and internationally. You can send us the image and we will do the rest.
