  • 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.
