Description

Add the soft glow of frosted glass to images with Savage’s Translum™ Backdrop. Made from sturdy plastic, this versatile backdrop can be used as a light table, prop setup, or background. Props on the other side of the backdrop are seen as shapes. Easily cut with scissors, Translum™ is also ideal for cutting silhouettes. Now offered in three grades for a range of diffusion options.

Our original, heavy grade creates a dramatic soft light effect where diffusing light over a large area is desired. This grade is an ideal and cleanable surface for shooting tables and table tops.
Our lightweight grade creates medium diffusion for a soft light effect in situations where some contrast is still desired.
Our medium grade creates a dramatic soft light effect where the elimination of most shadows is desirable.

FAQs

Translum™

Savage Translum™ can be wiped down with a wet cloth and mild soap. It works great for splash photography or messy food setups!

Our Translum™ backdrops are core-wound on a thick, cardboard core for easy hanging from a crossbar. Users may also use scissors to easily cut out sheets of the material and clamp the top edge to a support bar when a custom sizes is desired.

The three Translum™ materials vary in thickness, f-stop and light loss, so the grade you should buy will depend on those three components. You can find these specifications under the “Description” tab. If you are not sure which will work best for you, the medium weight should be a great starter.

Although you can get creative with limitless ways to use Savage Translum™, some of the standard uses are for high-key setups, tabletop photography, diffusing light, and to create silhouettes and patterns.

Heavyweight: Heat resistant up to 190°F (87°C)

Medium weight: Heat resistant up to 220°F (104°C)

Lightweight: Heat resistant up to 392°F (200°C)

Each of our translum products are composed of one of three primary polymers we commonly call plastic; styrene, polypropylene, and polyester. Translum is a very color-stable product in general, however all plastics begin to break down over time, and exposure to certain environmental factors can accelerate it.

• The most common cause of accelerated aging or yellowing in plastics is exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light and/or heat, such as with sunlight.
• Many high-output studio lights emit a portion of UV light in addition to light in the visual spectrum. Some lights also run very hot.
• The surface layer of plastics can also be adversely affected by certain cleaning compounds (such as ammonia), chemical fumes, smoke or other very fine airborne particulates.

We recommend storing your Translum in its packaging between use.
