  • Contributing effectively to the containment of coronavirus
  • Röhm GmbH scales up production significantly

Darmstadt, April 8th 2020. Due to the impact of the global spread of coronavirus, effective measures for its containment are needed now more than ever. This is somewhere PLEXIGLAS® sheets, the original acrylic glass from Röhm, can make an important contribution. In a many countries they are currently being used as transparent separator walls at points of sale and and store or customer counters to minimize the risk of droplet inflections and to break infection chains.

Demand for PLEXIGLAS® acrylic sheets has risen sharply in the past few weeks as a result. Röhm GmbH responded immediately and scaled up production at its side Weiterstadt. At the same time, further measures have been taken to protect production staff from potential infection.

Thanks to its unique production network, Röhm has secure and reliable access to raw materials and primary products for PLEXIGLAS® sheet products. This means the company is in a position to respond quickly and flexibly to the increased demand on the market. All raw materials and the PLEXIGLAS® sheets for protective walls are produced in Germany.

Whether installed permanently or in the form of mobile partition walls for effective infection protection, Röhm’s premium acrylic brand PLEXIGLAS® offers long-established advantages and properties. It is impact resistant, easy to fabricate, does not yellow even after many years of use, combines safety with aesthetics. The properties apply only to the original PLEXIGLAS®.
