  • high brilliance and excellent light transmission of 92%
  • superior UV and weather resistance
  • highest surface hardness of all thermoplastics
  • high abrasion resistance
  • absolutely colorless and therefore colorable at will 
  • high gloss surface (Class A)
  • good heat deflection temperature under load
  • high rigidity
  • fuel resistance
  • good chemical resistance
  • capable of being polished
  • 100% recyclability
Evonik Industries is a worldwide manufacturer of PMMA products sold under the PLEXIGLAS® trademark on the European, Asian, African and Australian continents and under the ACRYLITE® trademark in the Americas.
