Ultraviolet light can cause color loss, paper embrittlement, and deterioration of artwork, as does visible light. While it is not possible to block out visible light, it is possible to filter out much of the UV spectrum by using conservation glazing. Conservation glazing has a coating that filters out 97% of the UV spectrum in the 300 to 380 nanometer range, the range that conservators are most concerned about.
