On the Tru Vue website there was an article detailing that their biggest attractions from their booth at the 2016 West Coast Art and Frame Expo. They demonstrated a monstrous 9-foot by 5-foot piece that showcased the difference that Optium Museum Acrylic glass has on large framed pieces.
They installed some fans into the back of the frame to create an airflow to demonstrate how foam particles build up and stay attached to the inside of the glass. On the left with the foam particles built up in the center is the regular glass, and on the right is the Optium Museum Acrylic. Check out the difference below:
As you can see the Optium Museum Acrylic doesn't let the foam particles build up and statically stick to the inside of the frame!
