CRYLUX
ACRYLIC IN LIVELY, VIBRANT COLOURS.

Thanks to its high transparency, durability and UV stability, acrylic glass is the perfect choice when looks are what counts.

CRYLUX is a plastic sheet which is a clear winner when it comes to visual impact. Made from cast polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), it is exactly right for a wide range of purposes: corporate signage, shop-fitting, the building industry or individual pieces of furniture. CRYLUX’s perfect clarity is ideal for display applications; its vibrant colours for visual communication. Easily processed using most processing techniques, it offers scope for aesthetic designs.

The spectrum of colours ranges from special gloss grades (CRYLUX Argenta) to vibrant, fluorescent colours (CRYLUX Neon) and anti-reflective, matt surfaces (CRYLUX Design). There is a wide choice of colours available opaque, opal, transparent and translucent versions. Customised colours can be produced on request.

In addition, there are a variety of product versions manufactured to suit the special needs of individual applications: CRYLUX Beauté with increased chemical resistance, CRYLUX Anti-Bacteria with anti-microbial and fungicide protection as well as CRYLUX Lumina, Optima and Vision, specially designed for use with LED lighting or as a projection screen.

The material is not only available as sheets but also in blocks of up to 80 mm thickness.

CRYLUX sheets are made according to strict environmental and quality controls in line with the IPPC guidelines. This ensures consistent product quality. The sheets can be completely recycled using a pyrolysis process. The recycled raw material can be returned to the manufacturing cycle to produce new sheets without any loss in quality.

CRYLUX PMMA sheets also fulfil the requirements of the current European Union’s chemicals regulations (REACH). CRYLUX sheets, in particular, are free of any of the substances which are listed as being “Substances of Very High Concern” (SVHC) in the current version of the ECHA, e.g. silicone or halogen.

What is more, the production site adheres to a sustainability programme which has succeeded in reducing electricity and gas consumption by more than 40% and water consumption by 70% in the last ten years.
