Water Based Acrylic Canvas/Print Coatings
a. Pre-Mount / Pre-Stretch “CV” Coatings -
These coatings are applied onto canvas or paper prints to provide enhancement and protection. With canvas giclees the coating also provides elasticity so that when a canvas is stretched onto a wooden frame the ink does not tear. These coatings are available with or without added uv protection in a hi-gloss or matte finish. Formulas available for application with a Mayer rod or paint roller.
b. Post-Mount / Post Stretch Texture Coatings/Gels -
Our Craquelure brand coatings offer excellent texturizing and protection, eliminating the need for glass! Applied with a simple paint roller, putty knife, or paint brush, these coatings are available in matte, semi-gloss & hi-gloss coatings. Additional uv protection may be provided although minimum orders apply.
