Backlight Images™ is a 3-Dimensional photo reproduction and preservation system. The patented process provides a method to design, display, advertise or permanently preserve 2-Dimensional photographic images and vectorized logos or designs in a 3-Dimensional format. Utilizing DuPont™ Corian®, the 3-D reliefs, when illuminated from behind, seem to come alive.
Product innovations have expanded to include options in thermoforming, adding color, creating unusual outside shapes, and backfilling for horizontal applications.
All Images™ are backed with clear acrylic ranging from 1/16″ thick to 1/2″ thick depending on the size and specific image. The acrylic backer is applied to the image using UV stable, clear VHB tape. There are 12 different colors of Corian® that can be used to create this imaging process.
