PLEXIGLAS SATINICE®: freedom of design and stylish look

Light + Building 2010, Hall 4.1, Booth H31

• PLEXIGLAS SATINICE® – a stylish appearance for creative interior design
• Maximum creative scope also for special lighting designs

PLEXIGLAS SATINICE® is an extremely versatile material for creative interiors and special lighting designs, which combines elegance with functionality. With its velvety surface, it can add striking touches or exude low-key elegance. At the same time, PLEXIGLAS SATINICE® offers the same excellent properties as all grades of PLEXIGLAS®; qualities such as good formability, low weight and superior mar resistance that have proved their worth for decades in a large number of applications.

The excellent properties of PLEXIGLAS SATINICE® come to the fore especially in decorative interior designs. The material can be sawed, drilled, routed and bonded with ease, thermoformed at approx. 160°C, and shows no trace of finger marks. It therefore retains its noble appearance. Being extremely weather-resistant, PLEXIGLAS SATINICE® is also suitable for use in outdoor areas.

PLEXIGLAS SATINICE® owes its outstanding appearance to the special matte satin surface. But this surface does more than just look good. PLEXIGLAS SATINICE® diffuses incident light very effectively, almost without absorption, providing elegant and subdued lighting effects or eye-catching touches, like those in demand for advertising purposes.

PLEXIGLAS SATINICE® is available in many different colors. The sheets can be provided with one or two matte surfaces, making the material as versatile as the creative ideas of its users.

The Performance Polymers Business Unit of 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 trademark ACRYLITE® in the Americas.
