What is UV and how does it damage artwork? 

Within the solar spectrum, the range called Ultra Violet (UV) consists of the shortest wavelengths of light (up to 380 nm). This range of non-visible light can damage objects, including interior furnishings. UV light causes chemical reactions that, over time, fade or discolor artwork and underlying materials. UV exposure can cause paper and other materials to yellow and become brittle. Damage varies with the specific pigments and materials used.

Are there accepted industry standards for the percentage of UV filtration needed to protect artwork?

 Museums, conservation professionals and framing industry organizations like FACTS (the Guild for Fine Art Care and Treatment Standards) recommend a minimum UV blocking level of 97 percent for the range of 300 to 380 nm. Artist Choice UV Blocking Glass exceeds this recommendation by blocking 98 percent of this range.

Cutting and Handling Recommendations for Artist Choice Products

Artist Choice UV product is easily cut using conventional methods. It is most accurately cut using a wall-mounted glasscutter such as the http://framingsupplies.com/Onyx90/Onyx90WallMountedMediaCutter.htm the Onyx 90 or the Fletcher F-3000/3100 http://framingsupplies.com/Fletcher/Fletcher3000.htm or C&H Board and Glass Cutter http://framingsupplies.com/C&H/C+HGlassBoardCutter.htm  

Once properly adjusted, the cutter can be used for many glass-cutting applications without further adjustment.

Glass chipping or flaking will result if the cutting wheel pressure is too great. Although the Artist Choice UV product is shipped with a protective laminate it is still thin glass and does not require extreme force to effectively scribe the glass. A sharp wheel under modest pressure works best. It is also highly recommended to keep your glass cutter well lubricated so that the small cutting wheel rotate easily on it's axis.

A sharp wheel is more beneficial than excess pressure. It is recommended that a 124-degree cutting wheel be used.   A sharp wheel at sufficient pressure to penetrate the protective laminate and scribe the glass is what is necessary.

Glass chipping is almost always caused by excessive force. If glass flakes are found after removal of the protective laminate then decrease the pressure being applied. If the cutting wheel is failing to adequately scribe the glass then install a new wheel before attempting to increase pressure. Unnecessary force should not be used to compensate for a dull wheel.

Standard safety precautions should be followed when handling this or any other glass product. Proper use of protective clothing, gloves, and safety glasses is recommended.

Recommendations:

1.  Use personal protective equipment.

2.  Scribe on the laminated side of the glass.

4.  Use a 124-degree cutting wheel.

5.  Scribe using a slow and consistent hand motion.

6.   Ensure cutting wheel is free spinning and replace when it inadequately scribes glass surface.

7.  Do not remove protective laminate until ready to install in the frame.
