ALTUGLAS™ Cast Acrylic Sheets and Blocks for Signage
Trinseo, the leading global manufacturer of PMMA (polymethyl methacrylate), better known as acrylic glass, has developed a range of products specially designed for visual communication to make your brand stand out.
Trinseo has developed an acrylic sheet grade called LED System, allowing a significant reduction in energy costs. This technology yields the same quality lighting as a conventional system, while using fewer LEDs or less powerful LEDs.
Developed over multiple decades, Trinseo’s dedicated range of ALTUGLAS™ cast acrylic sheet and blocks for the sign market offers outstanding characteristics in terms of colors, shapes, and transformation technologies.

- Custom-made colors thanks to Trinseo’s Color Match system
- Special “2 in 1” lighting effects for day and night
- Comprehensive choice of surfaces to prevent sun glare
- Easy to maintain
- Entire letters & symbols can be made with ALTUGLAS™ acrylic sheets and blocks
ALTUGLAS™ Blocks - PMMA blocks offer more advantages compared to other materials in terms of aesthetics, fabrication and maintenance. ALTUGLAS™ blocks require a single manufacturing step, unlike other materials which require multiple steps, thus generating cost and time savings.
Compared to solutions where PMMA is used only as a cover, ALTUGLAS™ Blocks are not affected by temperature variation, meaning they need less maintenance and cleaning to remove dirt and humidity that would otherwise accumulate.
Advantages of Using ALTUGLAS™ PMMA Blocks
- One material, no gluing required, leading to simplified fabrication
- No corner shadow effects due to homogeneous light diffusion
- Lower energy requirement due to need to use fewer or less bright LEDs
- Ideal for shapes of all sizes including small dimensions
- Easy disassembly, enabling fewer maintenance requirements
- Available in wide range of thicknesses (30 to 90 mm) colors
