What is Diasec?


Diasec is the first system that allowed photographs to be bonded directly and permanently to Acrylic sheet. It is the worlds most established and quality proven face-mounting process.

Photographs are mounted to high exhibition standards without borders and eliminate the need for a traditional picture frame.

Diasec is a worldwide trademark registered by Diasec-Sovilla S.A. in Switzerland, who developed the technique in 1969. This company is allowing companies to obtain a license.

Licensee privileged ingredients support.

Only companies that are licensed can get hold of the special ingredients.

The select ingredients for Diasec contain a closely guarded secret formula.

All Diasec studios are equipped with a dedicated machine needed for the outstanding smooth bonding of the image to the Acrylic. 

Resulting in outstanding quality

Combining this with the light penetration and the refraction of clear Acrylic, it produces higher image definition, brilliant color and a fine detailed texture to photographic works.

Diasec panels can be backed with Aluminium or Dibond composite material, to reinforce the rigidity of the finished picture. Every studio has its own recipe or on clients request, different finishing methods are possible.

Most studios offer a custom made Aluminium Sub-frame that allows the artwork to hang floating on the wall, with no obvious means of support.

'...It looks absolutely amazing floating above the fireplace in my dining room. It is a real talking point both because of the way it has been mounted.
 
Great job! Thanks you all!''

Diasec

Diasec is the worlds most established and quality proven face-mounting process and was the first system that allowed photographs to be bonded directly and permanently to Acrylic sheet.

Photographs, either C-type prints or inkjet prints are mounted to high exhibition standards without borders and eliminate the need for a traditional picture frame.

Fine Art inkjet papers can be mounted with Diasec too! It makes it possible to mount ISO 9706 papers with acrylic, especially papers that are acid and OBA free.

 

Diasec® is a worldwide Trade Mark registered by Diasec-Sovilla S.A. in Switzerland, who developed the technique in 1969.

'I love the product! It just looks amazing! I'm sure the client will choose that over canvasses and acrylic prints. The Diasec has the quality of a high quality photograph and still has the nice acrylic clean finish and backing on aluminium. It combines the best qualities of all the other media.''

Clear ingriendients

The select Diasec ingredients contain a closely guarded secret formula. Ingredients that will be supplied from Diasec Support b.v. to Diasec producers only.

 

The special Diasec glue that is fluid, allows an optimal light penetration and refraction of clear acrylic, which enhances the image definition. It gives brilliant colors and fine detailed texture to photographic works that just cannot be achieved using traditional glazing methods. 

 

Diasec panels are backed with Aluminium or composite material (Dibond), reinforcing the rigidity of the finished picture and proving a beautiful profile when viewed from the side.

 

The back plate enables the attachment of a custom made aluminium sub-frame that allows the artwork to hang on the wall, from where it will appear to ''float'' with no obvious means of support.

Keep pigment prints safe

Diasec fluid glue is neutral curing and has an in-built ultra violet light filter. It contains no plasticizers and is resistant to fungicidal matter, bacterial agents and air-bourne pollutants.

 

After curing the whole airtight panel remains chemically inert and stable.

 

The finished product remains flexible too, enabling it to withstand changes in temperature and humidity, which commonly affect works on paper.

 

Initially designed for the gluing of C-Type prints, the Diasec process makes it now possible to mount on inkjet papers. This means that is is possible to choose an OBA free fine art paper.

 

Mounting inkjet prints into Diasec will result in an artwork that will last a long time. Much longer than you can imagine.

Diasec options

Diasec is a fluid gluing method with acrylic. No film is used. There are different acrylics possible.

Gloss

Diasec is normally faced with 3mm clear acrylic.

Five times stronger than ordinary float glass. But less than half the weight.

Anti-Reflective

Diasec can also be faced with anti-reflective acrylic.

This is non-reflecting acrylate and has a similar satin structure than a photograph with a mat finish.

TruLife

TruLife is a single side coated acrylic with a non glaring surface like museumglas for framings.

The uncoated side is suitable for the fluid mounting system that Diasec uses.
