Refitting someone's frame that has Tru Guard glass. Is that basically the same as Tru Vue Premium Clear, deflecting around 40% of UV, or does it deflect more? Thanks. :coffeedrinker2:

Similar thread:

Found this, very little info, but shines a little light on the subject:
And this, almost a cut&paste copy of above:
Both look to be very out of date websites.

Tru-Guard is an obsolete product and I couldn't find any information on it when I looked back. But as I recall, that was the designation that Tru Vue gave their 99% UV coating. If that recollection is correct, then True Guard glass would be similar to Conservation Clear. Not sure...

I had the same run-in not too long ago while reframing something. I was curious as well and came upon the same conclusion as Jim--it APPEARS to be the first name TruVue gave their 99% UV protectant glass. It even still had the little printing on the edge of the glass with almost the same verbage as modern conservation clear.
