A NEW PLATEAU IN DMAX & COLOR GAMUT
Yep, we did it again. First it was Chromata White (2005), then it was Lyve (2009). Now its Crystalline (2011). You just won't achieve a deeper black or wider color gamut on any other canvas.
OBA-FREE, YET STILL BRIGHT WHITE
Called "Chromata White", this breakthrough technology has set Breathing Color apart for years. Normally, OBA-Free products have a yellowish surface. Our "Chromata White" technology, which we released in 2005, forever changed this by delivering OBA-Free with the desired bright white surface. This answered the needs of our customers to maximize the longevity of their prints while maintaining the most popular and desired look. Crystalline is the only OBA-Freebright white glossy canvas ever developed.
"Chromata White" gives the end-user the most stable platform on which to print photographs and fine art giclees without the metamerism issues or color shift issues inherent on other canvases. Optical Brighteners compromise the attainmentof true color, they complicate profiling accuracy, and they inevitably deteriorate and yellow over time.
NO VARNISH REQUIRED
This makes it extremely attractive to printmakers who are new to printing canvas, and especially to those who prefer to avoid the labor-intensive step of varnishing their canvas prints.
NO CRACKING OR TEARING WHEN STRETCHING
Crystalline will not crack or tear when stretched, with or without a coat of varnish.
