View Full Version : What brand acrylic do you like for framing?

11-15-2011, 01:11 PM
I was wondering what everyone's preference for acrylic used for framing is? I have used Acrylite FF by Cyro for the past ten years. Due to price and availability, I will be switching to another brand.(probably Plexiglass by Arkema) I have also noticed over the past 4-5 years that the amount of black specs in the glazing has increased. Anyone else notice this? Any suggestions would be appreciated.

We use OP-3, and on rare occasions Optium for high value paintings.
