PLEXIGLAS® V Grade acrylic resins provide exceptional optical clarity and resistance to UV light degradation and discoloration making them the industry standard for applications where outdoor and indoor weatherability is paramount.
The resins are characterized by superior thermal stability, extrusion melt strength, excellent tool surface reproduction, and release properties.
PLEXIGLAS® V825T-LPL™ PMMA is a thermoplastic acrylic resin formulated for injection molding applications. It is characterized by its excellent optical properties, improved light output, and low color shift. It allows lighting designers to create signature, long path length optics without great concern for transmission loss.
PLEXIGLAS® HT121-LPL™ PMMA is one of the latest Trinseo innovations to join the PLEXIGLAS® acrylic resin family. It is a highly heat-resistant acrylic resin and is specifically formulated to maximize light output over long path lengths for automotive applications.
PLEXIGLAS® HT121 PMMA is a thermoplastic acrylic resin formulated for injection molding applications. It is characterized by its high heat resistance, with an RTI of 100°C. It has excellent weatherability and optical properties allowing it to excel in applications requiring outdoor stability, high quality surface appearance and/or precision optics. Moldflow simulation data is available.
PLEXIGLAS® V045 PMMA is a thermoplastic acrylic resin formulated for injection molding and extrusion applications. It exhibits exceptional thermal stability, extrusion melt strength, and tool surface reproduction and mold release properties making it very easy to process. It is characterized by its chemical and heat resistance as well a high melt flow. It has excellent weatherability and optical properties allowing it to excel in applications requiring outdoor stability, high quality surface appearance and/or precision optics. Supplemental moldflow simulation data is available.
PLEXIGLAS® V052i PMMA is a lightly impact-modified thermoplastic acrylic resin formulated for injection molding. It is characterized by its chemical and heat resistance as well as its good melt flow and excellent mold release properties. It is a tougher resin than PLEXIGLAS® V052 resin and PLEXIGLAS® V825T resin, allowing improved fabrication. Moldflow simulation data is available.
PLEXIGLAS® DIFFUSE™ Acrylic Resins
PLEXIGLAS® DIFFUSE™ acrylic resins are materials with unique light management characteristics such that light transmission is maximized while conversely affording the best hiding power possible. This is especially important in lighting and display applications.
PLEXIGLAS® Frosted Acrylic Resin
PLEXIGLAS® Frosted acrylic resins are materials with a unique finish and appearance. It allows the user to minimize visual defects such as fingerprints, scratches, and smudges. Because of the unique texture, this lightweight material is glass-like without the danger of shattering. The finish is durable and is perfect for backdrops, columns, illuminated signs, shelving, tabletops, visual displays, packaging, visual displays, and consumer goods to name a few.
PLEXIGLAS® Granite Acrylic Resin
PLEXIGLAS® Granite acrylic resin gives designers the freedom to duplicate the beauty of natural stone without the disadvantages of real stone. The extruded sheet featuring this specialty grade can be textured, rough, pebbled, or smooth and can be manufactured to be semi-translucent or fully opaque. Unlike naturally occurring stone, this material will be non-porous which allows for a low maintenance finish.
PLEXIGLAS® Impact Modified Acrylic Resins
PLEXIGLAS® Impact Modified resins are characterized by three primary features: toughness, heat resistance, and processability. Individual grades are formulated with varying combinations of these characteristics to meet specific applications needs. Impact Modified grades are typically used in durable applications ranging from transportation to weatherable capstocks to lighting, medical devices, and consumer durable goods.
