Dibond® consists of a polyethylene core between two fine aluminium sheets. 3 mm thick, it ensures excellent rigidity for large formats. The print is permanently affixed using acid-free adhesive. A sub aluminium frame attached to the reverse of the Dibond, further increases robustness and enables it to be hung on the wall. This robust and light presentation is extremely popular with galleries seeking refined presentation.
Resulting from an invention at the start of the 20th century by an American, floater frames are intended to enhance the work of artists. Widely used by galleries and museums, the technique involves leaving 1 or 2 cm between the work and the edge of the frame to create an impression of floating and depth. To do so, the print is permanently mounted on a aluminium sheet 1 mm thick and attached to the reverse of the frame using a wooden batten. Hanging is then possible with the clip screwed on the back of the frame on each side. The floater frame is a high-end contemporary framing technique. It is available in natural, white, wenge and black wood.
