PLEXIGLAS® proTerra

© Röhm GmbH / Philip Genster

Recycled acrylic glass as the base, proven brand quality as the result

PLEXIGLAS® proTerra products consist of approx. 90 percent reused raw materials and impress with the proven brand quality of the original by POLYVANTIS:

  • very resistant to weather and aging
  • stronger and lighter than glass in comparable geometries
  • easy and versatile to process and very easy to glue together

PLEXIGLAS® proTerra is a sustainably produced, high-quality acrylic. The environmentally friendly material is available as a transparent, opaque black/white or translucent white solid sheet, which can have a glossy finish on both sides or a matte surface on one side depending on the variant. PLEXIGLAS® proTerra is also available as a multi-skin sheet and a corrugated sheet.

Original PLEXIGLAS® is very easy to recycle. To produce PLEXIGLAS® proTerra solid sheets, the recycled raw material is extruded as a sheet core via a co-extrusion process and refined with outer layers of virgin PMMA. The recycled acrylic glass is impermeable to UV radiation, has a gloss surface on both sides and, as a co-extruded material, features the same properties as PLEXIGLAS® XT.

PLEXIGLAS® proTerra multi-skin and corrugated sheets are highly translucent and permanently weather resistant. The sheets are made of impact-modified acrylic with an increased share of recycled PLEXIGLAS® raw materials. The materials offer protection against excessive UV radiation, are hail-proof and highly UV resistant and are guaranteed not to yellow even after 30 years.

PLEXIGLAS® proTerra is a product alternative for all applications in which conserving resources is an important factor, including in designing luminaires and illuminated advertising, in exhibition booth and store fixtures, roofs, wind protection and privacy screens.

However, PLEXIGLAS® proTerra is not the only sustainable product – read on to discover how our other PLEXIGLAS® products also help find solutions for the challenges we face today:
