The RL179 has an anodized finish on high-quality aluminum for a sleek, strong and flawless surface. Anodization is an electrochemical process that creates a bond between the aluminum moulding and the anodizing color. This durable anodized and painted finish is resistant to chips and scratches. Anodized aluminum is also 100% recyclable.
Aluminum is inert and will not off-gas or rust, which means there’s no threat to precious art and no risk of unsightly corrosion. This frame is acid-free, making it ideal for conservation framing.
It is proudly made in the USA. Domestically sourced and manufactured—from start to finish—this frame supports American workers and the economy.
