When do we use Dibond?
Dibond® is constructed of a polyethylene core with 0.3mm composite aluminium skin which is extremely strong and lightweight. The ultra smooth aluminium surface is baked and lacquered producing a surface which is ideal for the mounting of large format chromogenic "C-Type" prints or photographs.
A pressure sensitive acrylic adhesive is used during the dry-mounting process which results in an even and smooth finish allowing the aesthetic qualities of the photograph to be shown. This smooth mounting panel produces no "orange peel" effect unlike other veneered or particle boards.
Once a work has been been mounted onto Dibond® it can be hung using a "split-batten" system straight onto the wall or can be "closed framed" with spacers under glass or Perspex.
*The specialized techniques which are involved in the mounting of photographic works to Dibond® are irreversible and permanent. Considerations should be made if the work is of significant monetary , cultural or historical value. Ultimately we can only advise on the aesthetical approaches and can recommend conservation framing techniques is appropriate.
