WHAT IS DIASEC / DIAMOUNT

Diasec is the registered trademark for the original method of face-mounting prints, such as photographs on acrylic sheet. The process was invented by Heinz Sovilla-Brulhart in 1969.

Diamount is a surrogate process similar to Diasec

Because of the light penetration and refraction of clear acrylic compared to normal glass, the colours are more brilliant and the image sharper than with standard glass in a picture frame. A Diasec mount is usually of a high gloss finish. Because the print is glued to the acrylic glazing, the result is a completely flat mount of the image.

The print is also protected against ultraviolet (UV) light. Diasec contains anUV light inhibitors to help protect the image from UV light

PROCESS

The process bonds the print without air bubbles, because it uses liquid gel instead of a transparent adhesive film. The image is face mounted and stuck to the acrylic glass with a special sealant. Normally the mounted print is then placed on a carrier sheet. This is usually Aluminium. If the print has to be backlit, translucent materials such as acrylic can be used instead. We will use the most suitable of these options for our product range at the time of printing.

The Diasec gel is neutral curing and has an inbuilt ultra violet filter. It contains no plasticisers and is resistant to fungicidal, bacterial agents, and airborne pollutants. After curing, the whole airtight panel remains chemically inert and stable. The finished product remains flexible, enabling it to withstand changes in temperature and humidity, which affect works on paper. However, the process is irreversible and if the acrylic glass is damaged there is no way to salvage the print.
