  • The acrylic used on your Gorilla Frame is manufactured by Evonik Industries, a worldwide leader in specialty chemicals based in Essen, Germany. Evonik provides poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) products in the USA under the ACRYLITE® trademark.

    The ACRYLITE® glazing in your Rockefeller filters more UV light (a higher percentage at any interval) over a wider range of the UV spectrum than competitive acrylics.

    Another key benefit of this glazing is that the filters are part of the chemical composition which forms the substrate i.e. the filtration is built in. Other acrylics use external coatings which can peal away and damage much more easily.

  • The primary mat is the first layer of protection against condensation. It creates a gap between the glazing and your artwork. Furthermore, it is the primary visual supplement aside from the moulding and it helps frame the artwork.

  • The accent mat serves 3 key functions. 1) It enlarges the gap between your artwork and the glazing - which helps protect against condensation. 2) it enhances and prioritizes your artwork through depth and color. 3) It comes in contact with your artwork and sanwiches it from the top. The accent mat is actually larger than the primary mat because it portrudes inward to form the base of the mat window.

    It has a neutral pH value of 7 which will never go away or change over time because cotton is naturally pH neutral.

  • The backing is a sheet of cotton rag mat that comes in contact with your artwork. It supports your artwork and sandwiches it from the back. The pH value (7) is identical to the primary and accent mat. This is critical in keeping your artwork safe from deterioration, now and in the future.

  • The final backing is used to give further rigidity and structural suport to your frame and artwork. The final backing is made from coroplast, also called pp plate sheet ("Fluted Polypropylene Sheet"). It is a lightweight (hollow structure), non-toxic, waterproof, shockproof, long lifespan, corrosion preventive material.
