ALU-PRO Aluminium Stretcher Bars and Canvases are used by professional artists, galleries and museums. Aluminium is light, only one third of the weight of steel or bronze, but is just as strong, durable and non-corrosive. By using an aluminium frame, the warping or bending of traditional canvases in moist environments is now a thing of the past. ALU-PRO Aluminium Stretcher Bars and Canvases are sustainably produced and eco friendly.
ALU-PRO Stretcher Bars and Canvases ensure maximum stability for your artwork. They are easy to transport as they are lightweight. The precisely engineered components of stretcher bars and canvas frames guarantee high quality products. The outer wood profile is to allow for easy back stapling of the canvas. ALU-PRO's design creates a perfect framework for canvas stretching, free from the deformation, twisting and warping caused by humidity or dryness.
ALU-PRO Canvases are made with high quality, 440gsm pure linen. This linen is made of the best flax thread which is selected for good length, thickness and colour. The linen is prepared and processed using traditional methods. Canvases come with one layer of hide glue and are primed with three layers of acrylic gesso. The natural drying process takes place in a warm, ventilated space. The sides of the canvas can be painted.
