What is DiaMount®

DiaMount® is an innovative method to mount the face of the photo to acrylic or iron-free glass with special UV inhibited silicone rendering a high gloss appearance and 3D-like effect enriched with vibrant colours and deep blacks. We use fine art paper for the most exceptional rendering of your image. The final product is stable and can withstand temperature and humidity changes. This process is free of bubbles and silvering often found when using double-sided adhesive.

DiaMount® to Plexiglass

DiaMount® is manufactured using 3mm Plexiglass, to which the images are face-mounted. Once the image has rested, it’s then backed by a rigid aluminium composite material (ACM), like Dibond®, encapsulating the print in an airtight sandwich. This process offers you a modern contemporary feel whereby it appears to be floating on a wall. Yet we’re not limited to this finish as it can also be framed, giving you that timeless classic look. Discuss your preferences with our consultants.

*Includes standard fine art print
*Includes aluminium sub-frame for easy hanging

DiaMount® to Low Iron Glass

Taking DiaMount® one step further, we offer mounting to 4mm Low-Iron Glass. What’s spectacular about this glass is that it’s free of any colour cast. The image is then face-mounted directly to the glass using the same technique as above. This method is an alternative to the traditional glazing used in framing. The advantages of this method will give your image exceptional depth and sharpness since the glass reflects light resulting in zero refraction of light between print and glass.

*Includes fine art print
*Excludes bespoke frame
