When having your artwork framed, there are several choices available when it comes to the type of “glass”, “glazing”, or “facing” that can be used. In this article we are going to take a moment and discuss what choices are available and what benefits each type offers, when it comes to the protection and display properties of your art. Keep in mind, most of these choices are only available for custom framing where conservation or anti-reflective coatings are important to the preservation of your photos or artistic works.
Neoprene is used for Halloween masks and masks used for face protection, for insulating CPU sockets , to make waterproof automotive seat covers, in liquid and sheet-applied elastomeric roof membranes or flashings, and in a neoprene- spandex mixture for manufacture of wheelchair positioning harnesses. Because of its chemical resistance and overall durability, neoprene is sometimes used in the manufacture of dishwashing gloves, especially as an alternative to latex . In fashion, neoprene has been used by designers such as Gareth Pugh , Balenciaga , Rick Owens , Lanvin and Vera Wang . This trend, promoted by street style bloggers such as Jim Joquico of Fashion Chameleon,  gained traction and trickled down to mainstream fashion around 2014.
