Polymethylmetacrylate (PMMA), better known under the name acrylic glass and Plexiglas, is predominantly used in a transparent design. PMMA exists both as extruded and cast variant. The material has a smooth surface, is relatively break-resistant and shows a high weathering resistance and ageing resistance. This material is used, among other things, as a visibility window in swing doors.
Polycarbonate (PC), better known under the name Makrolon and Lexan, is transparent and gleams slightly bluish. Polycarbonate has a smooth surface, is highly impact resistant and almost unbreakable, and is used in many areas of industry as a protective glazing or visibility window or as a display in the trade fair construction and shop construction.
Polysulfone (PSU) is a plastic of the group of thermoplastics and is slightly brownish transparent and translucent. Polysulfone is usable at continuous operating temperatures of up to 160°C and shows a high mechanical strength. Moreover the material is very dimensionally stable.
Polyurethane (PU) shows as an elastomer high tear resistance and a good elasticity. Mouldings are produced in the casting process.
Integral foam sheets made of rigid PVC are produced in a special extrusion process and have in the interior a fine cellular foam structure and outside a firm, smooth and closed surface. The material is used both in indoor and outside applications. These sheets are very versatile with applications in the area of shop and trade fair construction, window and model making and also in the furniture industry.
