LUMEX® stands for immaculate extruded transparent and translucent A-PET and PET-G thermoplastic polyester sheets.
LUMEX® A is ideally suited to both flat and curved applications. It ensures excellent printing results with UV-resistant inks, is classed “difficult to ignite” and suitable for use with foodstuffs. Due to its high chemical resistance to cleaning products, mineral oils and solvents, its field of application is even greater. It provides high impact resistance and optimal weather-resistance.
LUMEX® G (PET-G) is the top choice for applications in the area of thermoforming and hot forming. The sheets provide enhanced qualities when thermoformed as crystallisation does not occur. LUMEX® G (PET-G) does not require pre-drying before vacuum forming, making for a much quicker process. In comparison with traditional, transparent materials, high contour accuracy is achieved even when processing at lower temperatures. LUMEX® G sheets are classed in fire safety standards as “difficult to ignite”, suitable for use with foodstuffs and very impact-resistant. The sheets are an ideal substrate for printing with UV-resistant inks and easy and practical to process. Bonding with solvent-based adhesives is an additional factor in making processing simpler.
Not only do LUMEX® sheets offer a unique combination of outstanding properties, they are also the foremost ecological transparent and translucent sheet material as PET can be 100% recycled within its own waste category. LUMEX® sheets are made according to strict environmental and quality controls, ensuring consistent product quality. LUMEX® sheets also fulfil the requirements of the current European Union’s chemicals regulations (REACH). In particular, LUMEX® sheets do not contain any of the substances which are listed as being “substances of very high concern” (SVHC) in the current ECHA version. Moreover, the raw material is approved by FDA, meaning suitable for direct contact with foodstuff and medical applications.
