DiaMount® is silicone face-mounting method that renders beautifully adding exquisite depth to the artwork. It offers a modern contemporary feel whereby the artwork seems to be floating on the wall, setting the benchmark across museums and galleries worldwide. Art of Print has been awarded the exclusive licence in Africa to mount works with this process.
It is manufactured using 3mm Plexiglas®, to which the image is face-mounted. Once the image has rested, it is then backed by a rigid aluminium composite material (ACM), encapsulating the print in an airtight sandwich. Plexiglas Gallery® offers UV protection of up to 99.7% making it one of the best UV blockers among glazing materials and therefore complies with the highest conservation requirements. A DiaMount® is thus able to resist changes in temperature and humidity preserving the artwork for over 30 years. We offer this product in both a matte or a gloss finish.
