Clear Glass is the most commonly used glass but has no anti-reflective properties.
Non-glare Glass been etched to diffuse reflections, leaving more of a matte look over the framed artwork.
Conservation Glass is used to prevent UV light damage to artwork and is available in clear and non-glare. UV light contributes to irreversible color loss and cumulative damage.
Museum Glass is produced the same way as anti-reflective with the added benefits of UV protection and supreme clarity.
